Energy, Power and Transportation part of Integrate:Workshops and Webinars:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Courses
Tom Termes, Black Hills State University
This course provides an understanding of the principles of energy, power, transportation, and applied technology. Topics, among others, include technological literacy, history, and industrial uses of energy, power, and transportation, including the theory, application, conservation, and control of these resources.

GEOS 195 "Introduction to Fossil Fuels" part of Cutting Edge:Topics:: Courses
James Staub, University of Montana-Missoula, The
A a rigorous introductory course designed to provide an overview of geologic, geochemical, and geophysical principles and concepts associated with fossil fuel origins, exploration, development, production, and utilization. The course starts with a general introduction to fossil fuels and geologic principles and ends with a discussion of environmental issues associated with fossil fuel use.

The Earth's Energy Resources (GEOL 115) part of Cutting Edge:Topics:: Courses
Richard Kettler, University of Nebraska at Lincoln
This course examines the geology of energy resources. Emphasis is placed on those energy resources that society values most highly and consumes most voraciously. We emphasize those aspects of geology that are particularly relevant to the production of energy resources and to attempts to estimate the ultimate global recovery of these resources. We also consider briefly policy issues related to energy resource development, production, and utilization.

Solar Energy part of Integrate:Workshops and Webinars:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Courses
Scott Cummings, Kenyon College
Solar Energy (CHEM 108) is a one-semester chemistry lecture and discussion course designed for students majoring outside of the natural sciences. With an emphasis on quantitative reasoning, the course explores the chemical principles associated with societal fossil-fuel use (and associated environmental problems) and solar-energy technologies that could offer sustainable solutions.

Energy Resources part of Cutting Edge:Topics:: Courses
Allen Kihm, Minot State University
A survey of fossil fuel, nuclear, renewable and unconventional energy sources. Emphasis is on origin, use and implications of development. Field trips include visits to various energy producing sites.

Oil and Water (Geog 7) part of Cutting Edge:Topics:: Courses
Catherine Gautier, University of California-Santa Barbara
Oil (energy) and water are two key strategic resources dominating the international scene and for which people have been and will continue to fight and go to war over. Energy and water play a major role in most of the main geopolitical issues of our time. As climate changes and population increases, these resources will be affected and their usage will in return affect climate. The course focuses on: energy and water resources availability, demand and usage, the two-way connection between these resources usage and Climate Change, and the solutions characteristics and possibilities and the consequent impact on energy and water policies. This class has students analyze global energy, water and climate data sets and ponder about some of the social, economic and geopolitical ramifications of these data. It brings together important ideas in geocience, technology and global policy.

Energy and the Environment part of Cutting Edge:Topics:: Courses
Chris Sinton, Ithaca College
This course is designed to help students understand the earth energy system and the potential impact of human activity. Students are asked to gather and analyze data regarding energy generation, efficiency, and environmental impacts. The course focuses on quantitative analysis of energy systems, but also covers the socio-political and economic components.

Energy and the Environment part of Cutting Edge:Topics:: Courses
Edward Stermer, Illinois Central College
This course provides students not majoring in science with an opportunity to study world energy and environmental issues while learning basic concepts of physical science (physics, chemistry, earth science).

Hazards and Resources (ENVS 105) part of Cutting Edge:Topics:: Courses
Christine Metzger, Whittier College
Hazards and Resources provides an introduction to Earth science, emphasizing the role of geology in environmental issues. The course focuses on geohazards (including floods, landslides, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, and climate change) and resources (mineral, water, soil, air, and energy).

World Energy Systems part of Cutting Edge:Topics:: Courses
Anne Hall, Emory University
This is an idea for an interdisciplinary course examining energy systems, sustainability via multiple learning methods, including lecture, discussions, computer-based geospatial analysis, case studies, and field trips. Students will examine energy issues from a historical perspective on global, regional, and local scales. A capstone project integrates different disciplinary perspectives for a specific country. This idea was generated at the Teaching Energy Workshop.
