Watershed Management part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems: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 studies that were part of the USGS NAWQA program.


Principles of Environmental Geology part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Courses
This course explores the nature, dynamics and human interactions with near-surface geologic environments including aquifers, watersheds, coastlines and wetlands. We will also explore how specific techniques, including geophysical and geochemical techniques, field mapping, geographical information systems and remote sensing can be used to monitor human-geosphere interactions as well as be used to develop solutions or management plans for environmental problems.
