Teaching Chaos and Complex Evolutionary Systems Theories at the Introductory Level part of Teaching Activities
This is a learning progression of 12 models leading to 19 learning outcomes designed to introduce chaos and complex systems theories concepts in 3 - 5 50 minute classes. Includes power points of class ...
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 ...
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.
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 ...
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.
Weather Map Interpretation part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Gallery Walks:Examples
Students participate in a Gallery Walk to combine weather variables and create weather forecasts based on four different weather maps.
Water flow in the subsurface part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Using an off-the-shelf mock-up of a hydrological system, students are asked to predict where water will flow. Dyed water is injected into various parts of the system so that the students can see the flow patterns.
Drainage Basins Field Lab part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
This field activity and follow-up assignment explores the geomorphology of drainage basins in an active tectonic setting. It introduces basic concepts of drainage basin structure and landscape analysis using ...
Using ArcGIS to Evaluate the Qattara Depression Solar-Hydroelectric Power Project part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students use ArcGIS to evaluate a proposal to generate hydroelectric power by piping water from the Mediterranean and dropping it into the sub-sea level Qattara Depression.
