Watershed Management part of Teaching Activities
In this project, I ask students to use analogous reasoning to support the development of an accurate and rich conceptual model about a specific environmental issue using evidence collected from two watershed ...

Modeling Daisyworld part of Teaching Activities
This activity describes the Daisyworld model in conceptual terms and then describes how to construct a STELLA model of the system. Following this, a series of experiments are outlined, along with questions for ...

Web-o-Cycles part of Teaching Activities
This is a classroom activity intended as an introductory exercise in a capstone experience involving complex Earth systems.

Water Bucket lab activity part of Teaching Activities
Online lab activity to explore the generic structure of a leaky water tank. Time delay and equilibrium are introduced.

Atmospheric methyl chloroform: a leaky water tank example part of Teaching Activities
Atmospheric methyl chloroform concentration is modeled as an extension of the generic water tank structure. Simulated and observed concentrations are used to estimate the global atmospheric lifetime of methyl ...
