Coastal Margins Lab
karen mcneal, North Carolina State University
This project is meant for students to interpret complex data sets that have seasonal and yearly trends in coastal estuarine systems. Through being assigned a task as a EPA consultant and analyzing available data, ...

Evaluating natural hazards data to assess the risk to your California home
Corrie Neighbors, University of California-Riverside
Students use a series of maps and natural hazard data to evaluate the risk to a building structure of their choice in the state of California. For each hazard, students rate the potential risk in two dimensions: (1) Probability - probability that a hazardous event "may" occur, and (2) Severity of Impact - the size of the impact in terms of cost and impact on human health.

Environmental Injustice: Evaluating the evidence
Kimberly Smith, Carleton College
This assignment teaches students how to evaluate arguments concerning the maldistribution of environmental hazards, based on complex quantitative data.

Environmental Health Risk Inventory
Laurie Cantwell, Montana State University-Bozeman
In this activity, students perform an environmental health risk inventory of a selected locale. Students will address anthropogenic and natural health risks of an area using data collected from various online ...

The Effects of Storm Water Management on Water Quality
Jeff Clark, Lawrence University
This lab follows the skill development lab "Gathering Point Data using a GPS and ArcGIS 9.3." The topic is storm water detention ponds, which are designed in part to improve water quality. Using in-situ ...

Analyzing Hurricanes
Ben Laabs, SUNY College at Geneseo
The exercise uses GIS to explore historical data on hurricanes (path, strength, name). Students identify trends in hurricane records, the impact of hurricanes on major U.S. cities, and how hurricanes change through ...

Assessing Local Sea Level Rise
Ken Tabbutt, The Evergreen State College
Students will read primary scientific literature, work collaboratively, think critically, and utilize GIS as a tool to visualize and quantify spatial and temporal changes in hydrological systems.

How Cities Affect Their Local Climate
DATA: GLOBE Program Surface Temperature. TOOL: My World GIS. SUMMARY: Explore the urban heat island effect using student collected surface temperature data. Subset large datasets, buffer others, examine spatial relationships, and gather statistics to investigate temperature differences in urban and rural school sites.

Annotating Change in Satellite Images
Rebecca Teed, Wright State University-Main Campus
During this exercise, students compare a series of satellite images taken 3-4 years apart to investigate the effects of human land use and annotate the images using ImageJ software. -
