Chemistry of Earth Systems
Jeff Niemitz, Dickinson College
The course covers thermodynamics and kinetics of earth systems as it relates to earth surface environments. Much of the course examines the geochemistry of the different "spheres" and the fluxes and mass ...
Kevin Theissen, University of St. Thomas (MN)
This course focuses on geochemical processes that occur at or near the surface which are of particular importance to environmental quality and therefore to humans. During the first few weeks of the course students ...
Environmental Systems: Landscapes and Water
John Pitlick, University of Colorado at Boulder
This course introduces students to the sciences of hydrology and geomorphology, which are two branches of physical Geography dealing with earth surface processes.
Hydrotopia: Toward a Hydraulic Society in the American West
Ed Barbanell, University of Utah
Interdisciplinary case study analysis of historical and emerging water issues in the western United States. Students learn the fundamental concepts and major issues related to water resources planning and ...
Watersheds and Rivers
Amy Ellwein, Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory
This course uses simple yet authentic methods to describe properties of a local river system in order to better understand how all rivers function. The process of science is explicitly discussed and examined ...
Rich Whittecar, Old Dominion University
In this course we explore many of the major geomorphic systems, especially those that have affected Virginia. Landform processes and surficial materials related to tectonics, weathering, soil formation, stream ...
Sustainable Land Systems
John Motloch, Ball State University
This interdisciplinary course explores regions and sites as parts of complex adaptive systems; and the integration of economic and community development within these systems in ways that promote sustained ...
Hydrotopia: Water Resources Management in the West
Steven Burian, University of Utah
This is an interdisciplinary water management course. It is co-taught by an engineering instructor and an instructor from humanities. Students experience class sessions involving traditional lectures, guest speakers, position paper debates, and design charettes. Students are required to complete numerous in-class exercises, homework, three position papers, and a team project.
Water Resources Engineering
Anne Ronan, New York University
This is a lecture-based course that introduces students to a wide range of water-quantity (as opposed to quality) topics relevant to civil engineering design.
Water Resources Engineering Design (CIEN 560)
Manoj Jha, North Carolina A & T State University
This is an upper level course for senior undergraduate and graduate students. The mode is fully lecture with a field trip and a design project. Students learn a series of design problems of water resources structures including open channel, reservoir storage, water supply system, and storm and sanitary sewer system.
