Aquifer Elasticity and Specific Storage part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
The goal of this experiment is to measure the specific storage Ss of a balloon, which simulates aquifer elasticity. The experiment is designed to give observational meaning to the variable, increment of fluid content, and the influence of the state of stress on the specific storage.
Environmental Justice Activity part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Activities
This hydrogeology exercise requires the student to learn about the regulatory and environmental justice issues associated with redevelopment of a brownfield.
Wetland Restoration part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Courses
This 3‐credit, field‐based, workshop will introduce students to the multidisciplinary skills needed to work effectively with the complex and interconnected issues in a community‐based project in New Orleans to restore the Bayou Bienvenue Wetland Triangle (BBWT), which is adjacent to the Lower 9th Ward. The four‐week course will consist of one‐week each of focused study of wetland science, social science, and land tenure followed by a capstone week of hands‐on service learning doing reconstruction.
