Game: SMARTIC Arctic Case Study
Jessica Brunacini, Columbia University in the City of New York; Stephanie Pfirman, Arizona State University at the Tempe Campus
Students will build off of an introductory lecture on climate change in the Arctic to devise a strategy to manage climate change impacts on the global scale (the Arctic). After a brief synopsis on current management approaches in the Arctic, students will use information based on the stakeholders and interests they've identified before class, to organize and present.

Lab Exercise: Ocean Circulation Simulation: So Far, So Great
Patrick Callahan
How do oceans work? We see their ebb and flow, but what causes this enormous movement of water that influences the globe in many ways? Through a hands-on experiment, students learn the basic principles that cause ocean motion, that drive rising, sinking, and transport in the real ocean.

Case Study: Alberta’s Oil Sands and the Rights of First Nations Peoples to Environmental Health
Source: Evergreen College - Enduring Legacies Native Cases http://nativecases.evergreen.edu/index.html
The Problem Alberta sits over one of the largest recoverable oil patches in the world, second only to Saudi Arabia. It covers 149, 000 square kilometers, an area larger than Florida, and holds at least 175 billion barrels of recoverable crude bitumen... But oil sands are a fundamentally different kind of oil. They take a lot of energy and a lot of water and leave a very large environmental footprint compared to all other forms of oil extraction. Because of this, the massive changes to the boreal forest and the watershed have prompted the United Nations to list this region as a global hot spot for environmental change. (H2Oil)
