Causality in Complex Dynamic Systems: A Challenge in Earth Systems Science Education
Federica Raia 2008 Journal of Geoscience Education v. 56, n. 1, pp. 81-94.

This paper explores the concepts of causality necessary to understand complex system behavior and evolution and simple but important steps in teaching about complexity can support students in developing and utilizing richer and adequate repertoire of causal models for the analysis of natural phenomena.
