USC WRIGLEY INSTITUTE FOR
ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES


SUMMER EDUCATION  PROGRAM
NATURAL HAZARDS AND BUSINESS RISK       JUNE 2 - 6 OR JUNE 9 - 13, 1997

Instructors: Anthony Michaels, Tom Henyey , Dave Malmquist and others
Total Cost: $1100
This course will explore the state-of-the-art in scientific understanding
of natural hazards such as tropical cyclones, earthquakes and floods and
the relevance of these hazards to insurance and other types of business
risk. We will examine climate forecasting on all time-scales and also
discuss earthquake risk assessment. We will present new strategies for
linking science to the business decisions in insurance and other areas of
finance. The course is designed for working underwriters, business school
majors and other decision makers. The course is offered twice this summer
and will be repeated at later dates.

CASE STUDIES IN TROPICAL COASTAL DEVELOPMENT    JUNE 9 - 13, 1997

Instructor: Linwood Pendleton   Total Cost: $450
The course introduces students to the physical, economic, and policy issues
of tropical coastal development. Lectures and case studies teach students
to identify development impacts, sources of impacts, and methods for
managing coastal development. The cases are drawn from real-life
experiences from the Caribbean and Africa.

RESEARCH DIVING JUNE 16 - 27, 1997

Instructors:  Pete Pehl (USC), Don Canestro (UCSC),     Standard Rate: $850
 Frank DiCrisi (UCLA), Dennis Divens (UCSB),    Discounted Rate: $450
        Henry Fastenau  (UCD), Mark Flahan (SDSU)
This course will result in a research diving certification that is accepted
at most California Universities and around the world at institutions that
offer reciprocity through the American Associate of Underwater Science
program. Students will be instructed in basic and advanced diving skills,
rescue techniques, CPR and oxygen administration. The course will be team
taught by the Dive Safety Officers from a number of California Universities
and there is a special discount to students from the home institutions of
these instructors.

EMERGENCY DIVING ACCIDENT MANAGEMENT (EDAM)     JULY 13-18, 1997
Instructors: K. Huggins, L. Sadler, J. Sipsey, M. Tulin         Total Cost: $600
An intensive lecture-based course dealing with aspects of diving accidents.
Students will be exposed to case histories of diving accidents to evaluate
the events, equipment, or errors precipitating the accident; determine ways
in which these problems can be avoided in future dive planning; learn about
the physiology and pathology of decompression sickness and air embolism
injuries; understand the psychological issues involved, as instructor,
rescuer, or chamber operator, in dealing with a diving accident; get an
in-depth look at how decompression tables and dive computers are put
together, and what Doppler bubble detection has to do with current
decompression research. Many other topics will also be covered. For an
additional fee of $25, students can participate in two chamber dives (60
fsw and 165 fsw).
PLATE TECTONICS, EARTHQUAKES AND        JULY 14 - 21, 1997
SANTA CATALINA ISLAND

Instructor: R.D. Francis        Total Costs: $477
This course is designed for geology students, high school teachers,
community college instructors and all with an interest in southern
California geology.  Students will collect rock and sediment samples from
the seafloor, probe below the seafloor with seismic reflection and
echosounder methods, and observe submerged outcrops with side-scan sonar
and remote controlled submersibles. Lecture topics include plate tectonics,
development of the offshore California Borderland province, the geologic
and tectonic history of Santa Catalina Island, and offshore active faults.

BIOLOGICAL OCEANOGRAPHY         JULY 21 - AUGUST 8, 1997

Instructors: William Cochlan, Mark Wells        Total Costs: $1800
An intense lecture/laboratory course covering the fundamental biological
oceanographic processes within the marine environment off southern
California and the open ocean. The interrelationships among marine
communities and the macro- and micro-chemical factors which influence
production will be discussed with an emphasis on understanding and
measuring how environmental factors affect the production of the world's
ocean. The biology and ecological roles of the microorganisms occupying
lower trophic levels will form the core of study.

MARINE FISHES OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA    JULY 21 - AUGUST  8, 1997
Instructor: Robert Reavis       Total Cost: $1800
This course will introduce students to both classical and current topics in
ichthyology, with a focus on the abundant ichthyofauna around Santa
Catalina Island. Students will learn the anatomy, functional morphology,
systematics, and identification of local fishes. The second week will be
devoted to lab and field studies (which may include snorkel and SCUBA) in
behavior and ecology. Students will conduct their own research project and
present their findings in oral and written reports.
