Climatology
Cindy Shellito, University of Northern Colorado
This course is designed to help students gain a scientific understanding of the physical aspects of Earth's climate system and the factors that influence climate change. We explore the global balance of energy ...

Natural Hazards and Disasters
Meredith Denton-Hedrick, Austin Community College
This course provides a survey of earth sciences through an examination of natural hazards. Consumers, voters, and decision-makers need to understand the impact of these hazards, how the hazards are changing due to ...

Earthquakes and Volcanoes
Ignacio Pujana, University of Texas at Dallas, The
This is an interdisciplinary science course offered in an online format. A flexible approach based on programmed self-instruction, with frequent tests to monitor progress, substitutes for the usual lecture with ...

Geology and the Environment
Karin Kirk, Carleton College
This online course covers the basic elements of environmental geology including natural hazards, land use, resource use and climate change. The course is taught asynchronously and has 7 modules, each lasting 1-3 ...

Introduction to Volcanology
Erouscilla Joseph, University of the West Indies
The course will introduce students to Plate tectonics and volcanoes; including the processes that takes place at active volcanoes (eruptive mechanisms, effusive and explosive volcanism); methods and instrumentation ...

Natural Hazards & Environment (ISP-203 B - 002)
Brian Hampton, Michigan State University;
This is a geology majors/non-majors course that addresses the science and public policy issues related to tectonic and atmospheric hazards.

Science, Society, & Global Catastrophes
Theo Koupelis, University of Wisconsin - Marathon
Catastrophes are used to introduce students tophysics, meterology, epidemiology, the chemistry of greenhouse gases, and statistics. 60 students and five faculty on five campuses are linked by compressed video. Assignments emphasize critical thinking and writing skills, and include group projects, interpretation of data, analysis of journal articles, and mathematical and statistical modeling exercises.
