Air and Water Quality Optimization Related to Open Pit Mining part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Mark Koopman, University of Utah
The module is not sufficiently developed to be summarized.
How to Create a Well Log for Use in Geothermal Bore Field Design part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Kevin Amende, Montana State University-Bozeman
This activity is intended to provide a foundation in soil classification and well log creation for mechanical engineers who would like to design geothermal bore fields. Having an understanding of geoscience allows mechanical engineers to make educated decisions when trying to associate soil thermal properties for these designs.
Data analyses for water resources design parameter part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Manoj Jha, North Carolina A & T State University
Students use historical time series of streamflow data and perform statistical analyses to develop flow duration curve and other relevant analyses. Finally, they interpret the usefulness of these analyses to use in the design of water resources structures.
Calculating Resilience, Tipping Points, and Restoration for Lakes at Risk from Acid Rain part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching about Risk and Resilience:Activities
Bill Stigliani, University of Northern Iowa
This activity is about the resilience of watersheds at risk from acid rain, how they can lose their resilience and become dysfunctional when a tipping point is transgressed, and how the ecosystem can recover as a result of natural replenishment processes and laws enacted to reduce pollutant inputs.
Field Trip to Explore Local Natural Disasters part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching about Risk and Resilience:Activities
Robert Clayton, Brigham Young University-Idaho
All on-campus Natural Disasters students at BYU-Idaho (1200 - 1800 students per year) go on a field trip to develop field observation skills. We visit the Teton Dam, Henry's Fork caldera (part of the Yellowstone hot spot track), and 1959 Hebgen Lake earthquake area.
Seismic Evaluation of Buildings part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching about Risk and Resilience:Activities
Dr.G.P.Ganapathy, VIT University, Vellore 632014, India
Check list to retrofitting of buildings based on Rapid Seimic evaluation of the buildings
Developing a risk communication strategy part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching about Risk and Resilience:Activities
Bruno Takahashi, Michigan State University
This exercise will allow students to develop a comprehensive risk communication strategy.
Local Power Portfolio part of CLEAN:CLEAN Network:Teaching Materials
Ander Sundell, College of Western Idaho
This activity is part of the community collection of teaching materials on climate and energy topics. These materials were submitted by faculty as part of the CLEAN Energy Workshop, held in April, 2011 and are not ...
Transport of heavy metals in the Clark Fork River part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching the Methods of Geoscience:Activities
Kathleen Harper, University of Montana-Missoula, The
This is an activity about transport of sediment contaminated by copper, arsenic, and other heavy metals that was deposited into the Clark Fork River channel as the result of historical mining activity. The Clark Fork River between Butte and Milltown, Montana has been the focus of several large superfund projects designed to address the impacts of this legacy of mining in the watershed. This activity is used in an introductory physical geology lab (primarily non-majors) with students who may have limited experience working with quantitative analysis and analyzing graphs.
Back of the Envelope Calculations: Renewable Energy part of Integrate:Workshops:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Activities
Laura Rademacher, University of the Pacific
This is an example of a back of the envelope calculation of the payback period for a renewable energy installation.
