Assessing Water Resource Demand in New York City
Kyle Monahan, Clarkson University
An exercise assessing the water demand of New York City and population dynamics underlying that demand is provided. Visualization of first order water resource estimates using precipitation data and a known water storage volume are used to draw conclusions about drought risk and the sustainability of NYC water supplies.
Making Sustainable Business Decisions In Four Different Industries and Their Effect on People (Social), Planet (Environment), and Profit (Economics)
The student will gain a better understanding of "Global Warming" and the "Triple Bottom Line" by viewing the first two videos. Further the CEO2 game will introduce many new ideas/options that specific industries have to select from in achieving their desired corporate/company goals.
Water Neutrality Design Charette
Steven Burian, University of Utah
An exercise to design a water management plan for the University of Utah to achieve water neutrality. Students are expected to work with their disciplinary tools to identify infrastructure needs, environmental impacts, cost, social impacts, and more.
Air and Water Quality Optimization Related to Open Pit Mining
Mark Koopman, University of Utah
The module is not sufficiently developed to be summarized.
How to Create a Well Log for Use in Geothermal Bore Field Design
Kevin Amende, Montana State University-Bozeman
This activity is intended to provide a foundation in soil classification and well log creation for mechanical engineers who would like to design geothermal bore fields. Having an understanding of geoscience allows mechanical engineers to make educated decisions when trying to associate soil thermal properties for these designs.
Finding Soil Material for a Construction Project
Tej Gautam, Marietta College
For this activity, students will prepare soil maps and data tables. Using 'Web Soil Survey (WSS)', a small area around Marietta City will be chosen and possible sites for acquiring soil as a construction material for an engineering project will be determined.
Runoff Generation from Varying Land Surfaces
Freddi-Jo Bruschke, California State University-Fullerton
Experimental lab activity and lesson exploring runoff generation from different types of land surfaces.
