Potential teaching needs include the following:

ES104 Introduction to Natural Resources (Lab)

Using real-world data from local and global sites, students will explore the issues related to natural resource conservation around the world. Topics covered will include impacts of mining and processing mineral resources, recycling and waste management, renewable and non-renewable energy resources, global climate change and management of water resources, as well as basic concepts of geology, energy and human attitudes towards the environment. Students will examine trends in global resource use, learn how natural resources can be used more wisely through problem solving, and take action through civic engagement to move towards creating a more a sustainable society. Offered Fall & Spring

GL115 Global Change: The Oceans (Lab)

History has shown that science provides a powerful methodology by which we as human beings can come to understand the natural world. Using this theme of global change - specifically, looking at the planet-wide changes now occurring in the oceans and looking at the link between these changes and changes in the atmosphere - students will become more familiar with some of the major scientific concepts relating to this set of issues, how these concepts have developed, and how scientists continue to revise these ideas. Students will be able to understand and interpret scientific information and be able to make reasoned decisions, as voting citizens, based on that information. The Oceans course will consider topics related to ocean origins, structure, sediments, water chemistry, atmospheric and oceanic circulation, waves, tides, coasts, and marine life. Offered in Fall

GL120 Global Change: The Atmosphere (Lab)

Science is a process that strongly informs human choices that have global impacts. In this course, students will be guided by their own curiosity, because without curiosity there can be no science. Students who successfully finish this course will be able to: (1) critically research and understand the interrelationship between global climate change and the atmosphere and human actions; (2) critically evaluate the validity of claims, positions, etc., made by businesses, government agencies, or other various groups using a systematic method (that is, the scientific method); (3) articulate and communicate, both individually and in a group setting, your position on important human global issues that have scientific concepts at their roots; and, (4) recognize that science strongly informs these human social/political issues that have scientific concepts at their roots. Specific topics considered in this course include atmospheric chemistry, pressure and temperature systems, humidity and precipitation, cloud development, atmospheric circulation, weather forecasting, extreme weather events, climate change and air pollution. Offered in Spring
