Ed Barbanell: Using An Ecosystem Services Approach to Water Resources in Environmental Ethics at University of Utah part of An Ecosystem Services Approach to Water Resources
Ed Barbanell, University of Utah
Provocative Expansion of the Typical Environmental Ethics Course The narrative of Environmental Ethics is currently in flux, steadily shifting away from an almost exclusive emphasis on justifying the protection of "nature", understood primarily as "wilderness," to exploring a broader range of human/nature relationships. Most recently, with discussion of the Anthropocene gaining traction, the role of "nature" in our thinking is quite unclear; if it is best viewed as a set of discrete services that support and sustain human life and well being, then what limits do we have in altering "nature" in the name of improving its services to us? Utilizing the module just before a philosophical discussion of the implications of seeing "nature" as just so many ecosystem services made that discussion much more concrete and "real" for the students.

Steve Burian: Using Water Sustainability in Cities at the University of Utah part of Water Sustainability in Cities
The goal of the course is to empower students to effect change, by giving them the knowledge and opportunity to connect global and regional issues to local conditions and behaviors. The focus was water and sustainability, with case studies, position papers, field trips, and guest speakers all providing varied perspectives of the key water issues. Topics include governance, community engagement, climate and water, water institutions, and water management.

Marshall Shepherd: Using Water Sustainability in Cities at the University of Georgia part of Water Sustainability in Cities
The United Nations estimates that by the year 2025, 60% of the world's population will live in cities. Human activity in urban environments alters atmospheric composition; impacts components of the water cycle; and modifies the carbon cycle and ecosystems. A more integrated understanding of the complex interactions of the urban environment and the Earth system is needed. To understand the urban-climate system linkage, an interdisciplinary effort combining in situ and remote sensing, modeling, and human dimension assessment is ultimately required.

Carey Gazis: Using Measuring Water Resources with GPS, Gravity, and Traditional Methods in Hydrogeology at Central Washington University part of Measuring Water Resources
Carey Gazis, Central Washington University
A Case Study of Groundwater and California Drought in a Hydrogeology Course. I teach a hydrogeology course each year for undergraduate seniors and M.S. students. In this course, students learn the fundamental concepts about groundwater, how it enters the subsurface, is stored, and how humans use and rely on this resource. Each year, we use the same textbook and the same concepts are taught. Current concerns about groundwater availability and quality are often discussed, but are rarely examined in detail. This year, through the GETSI module, we had the opportunity to not only discuss a current groundwater concern, but to examine it in detail looking at data collected using emerging methods to quantify terrestrial water budgets.

Geohydrology part of , Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Courses
Peter Riemersma, Grand Valley State University
GEOhydrology is the study of groundwater and its physical and chemical interactions with the physical environment. The course will be focused on those geologic principles that govern the occurrence, movement and ...

Basic Hydrology part of Integrate:Workshops and Webinars:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Courses
Gigi Richard, Fort Lewis College
Basic Hydrology is an introduction to physical and applied hydrology and explores the components of the hydrologic cycle including processes of precipitation, evaporation, transpiration, infiltration, ground-water flow, surface runoff and streamflow.
