Unit 4.2 - Carbon Budgets part of Critical Zone Science
The purpose of this unit is to explore, compare, contrast, and interpret carbon fluxes from the Ameriflux network to better appreciate the critical factors that account for the different timing and magnitudes of ...
Unit 5.1 - Water Balance of a Tree part of Critical Zone Science
The assignment is to calculate an annual water balance for a tree using data gathered at the Southern Sierra Critical Zone Observatory. In the framework of experimental design, students will organize around a ...
Unit 2.1 - Basic Tools & Analysis part of Critical Zone Science
This unit will introduce methods and data from Critical Zone observatories as well as methods that scientists use in their research. These activities will provide an introduction to methods used in later units and ...
Unit 4.1 - Energy Budgets part of Critical Zone Science
The purpose of this unit is to explore, compare, contrast, and calculate energy fluxes from different CZO field sites to better appreciate the critical differences in the driving radiative forces affecting each ...
Unit 6.2 - Biogeochemical Examples part of Critical Zone Science
In this week-long unit students will explore Critical Zone function and dynamics as they relate to nutrient cycling in agricultural systems and nutrient pollution into aquatic systems. This unit is generally ...
Unit 6.1 - Biogeochemical Modeling Framework part of Critical Zone Science
In this unit, students will learn about the dynamic movement of nutrients among and within ecosystems primarily through the reading and discussion of scientific literature. This unit is generally subdivided into ...
Columbia River Gorge and the Oregon Coast to Northern California part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching in the Field:Field Trip Collection
Gorge to Shore - Columbia River Gorge and the Oregon Coast to Northern California Drs. Jenny Thomson and John Buchanan, Department of Geology, 130 Science Building, Eastern Washington University, Cheney, WA 99004 ...
Calcium (Ca) availability to ecosystems: Weathering of limestone, apatite, and Ca-plagioclase (anorthite) part of Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Sequence of laboratory activities to develop familiarity with geochemistry bench laboratory experimental methods; demonstration of different weathering rates of different Ca-bearing minerals; connection between ...
An integrated view of the Glendale Landscape part of Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Students work in groups to develop posters that communicate their concept of landscape following several field labs (soils, sediment analysis, river discharge, vegetation survey, aquatic life) at one location. They ...
Soils —Field Characterization, Collection, and Laboratory Analysis part of Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Field characterization of soil profiles in coniferous and deciduous settings; sample collection of soils from different horizons; laboratory analysis of soil moisture, soil organic carbon (by loss on ignition), and ...
CCD & Calcareous Ooze Assignment part of Oceanography:Activities
The assignment pre-tests student understanding of the CCD, lysocline, calcareous ooze, and the deposition of marine sediments near mid-ocean ridges and ocean basins.
Atmospheric Carbon: Can We Offset the Increase? part of Oceanography:Activities
This activity lets students discover first hand how the big issues in climate change – here, the increase in atmospheric CO2 and the utility of carbon offsets – can be understood through measurement, ...
An Assessment of Riparian Vegetation in a Human-Influenced Landscape part of Curriculum for the Bioregion:Activities
Given that humans historically have heavily used rivers and the lands along them for agriculture, transportation and other activities, how does human impact currently affect riparian ecosystems in a rural region? Students will address this question through several activities.
Is The Water Safe for Aquatic Life? part of Curriculum for the Bioregion:Activities
In this field activity students ponder sustainability issues such as point and non-point sources of pollution (including personal contributions), impacts of pollution, and potential mitigations.
Visualizing Carbon Pathways part of Earth Exploration Toolbook:Carbon
DATA: NASA Satellite Images TOOLS: ImageJ and Image Composite Explorer (ICE) of NASA Earth Observations (NEO). SUMMARY: Build animations of satellite data to illustrate and explore carbon pathways through the Earth system.
Review for interdisiplinary science course (stream ecology, watersheds) part of Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
This is a large-scale participatory activity used to prompt students to review what they have learned and to think actively and cooperatively about the connections between the systems we have discussed prior to the ...
Evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacteria part of Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
This activity is intended to guide students to apply principles of evolution by natural selection to explain a real world biological phenomenon (the evolution of bacteria populations resistant to common ...
The Modern Atmospheric CO2 Record part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with Data:Examples
Students compare carbon dioxide (CO2) data from Mauna Loa Observatory, Barrow (Alaska), and the South Pole over the past 40 years to help them better understand what controls atmospheric CO2. -
Teaching Scientific Certainty: Climate Change and Impact on Biodiversity part of Integrate:Program Design:Implementation Programs:Gustavus Adolphus:Teaching Activities
The goal of this module, developed at Gustavus Adolphus College for the InTeGrate project, is to introduce college students to the general concepts of scientific theory versus facts, scientific certainty and the role experts particularly in the context of climate change. The module also focuses on a recent paper discussing climate departure, and its impact on human society and biodiversity.
Global Climate Change: Orlando: A Biography by Virginia Woolf part of Integrate:Program Design:Implementation Programs:Gustavus Adolphus:Teaching Activities
This mini-module describes a two-day mini-unit integrating global climate changein Woolf's book Orlando: A Biography. The module connects historical climate records to literary descriptions, discusses the difference between weather and climate, and invites conversation about climate-driven trends in phenology.
