Wind and Ocean Ecosystems part of Project EDDIE:Teaching Materials:Modules
Wind has a fundamental impact on ocean ecosystems. Wind drives physical processes, including current development and upwelling through Ekman transport. These physical processes, in turn, have cascading impacts on ...

Environmental Pollution & Public Health part of Project EDDIE:Teaching Materials:Modules
Environmental health is a field of study within public health that is concerned with human-environment interactions, and specifically, how the environment influences public well-being. In this module, students will explore how environmental pollution impacts public health through comparing cancer rates of areas with known environmental pollutants to the national average through a t-test. Students can further their knowledge by comparing the concentrations of atmospheric pollutants in areas with known sources to control sites without such sources. Project EDDIE modules are designed with an A-B-C structure to make them flexible and adaptable to a range of student levels and course structures.

Using Project EDDIE modules in DSL 200: Scientific Literacy part of Project EDDIE:Teaching Materials:How the Community is Using EDDIE Materials:Instructor Stories
This module will convince even the most anthropocentric student why they should care about environmental pollution. It's also a great way to shows students a practical application of hypothesis testing.
Using Wind and Ocean Ecosystems in Environmental Statistics part of Project EDDIE:Teaching Materials:How the Community is Using EDDIE Materials:Instructor Stories
This module eposes students to a variety of data, plots, and visualizations that they are not often exposed to and therein encourages them to develop their higher order thinking skills in the context of oceanography. Students also get excited about the prospect of manipulating satellite data.
