UV Menace

Wheeling Jesuit University, NASA Classroom of the Future

UV Menace is part of an online series of modules entitled Exploring the Environment. Emphasizing an integrated approach to environmental Earth Science education through problem-based learning, this module asks students to learn about stratospheric ozone depletion and its effects, then determine future measures that will be needed to correct the current situation. Students will find extensive coverage of the Earth's hydrosphere, lithosphere, atmosphere, anthrosphere, and biosphere. They use this information to evaluate the current status of the Montreal Protocol and determine if it is adequate. If not, students must develop the changes they feel are necessary. There is an online glossary and links for further research and information, teacher resources, and a reference on problem-based learning.
