The online schedule is the real schedule in Geography 353. Please watch for updates to the course schedule.

Lecture outlines, which can be accessed by delicately clicking on the lecture name in the schedule below, will be revised prior to lecture. Each lecture outline has the date of last revision at the top of the outline. I will do my best to finalize all revisions and updates to the lecture outlines a week before lecture.

Readings for each week should be promptly completed by the first meeting of that week. KW refers to the Krygier/Wood Making Maps 3rd ed. text.
