Environmental Mechanics

Track Advisor: Prof. Dan Rothman ( dhr@mit.edu)

The environmental mechanics track is for students interested in
learning how the natural environment works. The curriculum emphasizes
an understanding of fluid flow and chemical reactions in the
atmosphere, oceans, and subsurface; the ways in these processes
interact with the biosphere; and contemporary problems of
environmental change. The mission of the Environmental Mechanics track
is to provide students with the skills and concepts necessary to
recognize the ways in which the natural environment acts to amplify or
attenuate any perturbations to it. The program provides future
industrial and political leaders with a scientific basis for assessing
environmental impacts in addition to preparing students for graduate
study in allied fields.
