The Wealth of Water: The Value of an Essential Resource

(View Complete Item Description)

Many students take the availability of water for granted. This case study, which focuses on the Cochabamba water revolt in Bolivia, is designed to encourage students to think about water as a limited natural resource. Students learn about the limited nature of freshwater and the impact that access to clean water has on people across all socioeconomic demographics. Designed for a non-majors course in global ecology, the case could also be used in non-majors and majors courses in biology, environmental science, environmental policy, ethics, and international relations, among others.

Introduction to Water and Climate

(View Complete Item Description)

Water is essential for life on earth and of crucial importance for society. Also within our climate water plays a major role. The natural cycle of ocean to atmosphere, by precipitation back to earth and by rivers and aquifers to the oceans has a decisive impact on regional and global climate patterns. This course will cover six main topics: Global water cycle. In this module you will learn to explain the different processes of the global water cycle. Water systems. In this module you will learn to describe the flows of water and sand in different riverine, coastal and ocean systems. Water and climate change. In this module you will learn to identify mechanisms of climate change and you will learn to explain the interplay of climate change, sea level, clouds, rainfall and future weather. Interventions. In this module you will learn to explain why, when and which engineering interventions are needed in rivers, coast and urban environment. Water resource management. In this module you will learn to explain why water for food and water for cities are the main challenges in water management and what the possibilities and limitations of reservoirs and groundwater are to improve water availability. Challenges. In this module you will learn to explain the challenges in better understanding and adapting to the impact of climate change on water for the coming 50 years.

The Roots of Energy Efficiency: A Thirst for Power - The Global Nexus of Energy and Water

(View Complete Item Description)

With the use of famous movie clips, Michael Webber illustrates the nexus between water supplies and energy resources, the expanding reliance between them, and how the loss of one impacts the other. He builds a case for examining the challenges this poses and how to plan for mitigating the problems and conflicts that will inevitably arise. (57 minutes0

MultiMeters 101: Basic Operation, Care and Maintenance and Advanced Troubleshooting for the Skilled Trades – Simple Book Publishing

(View Complete Item Description)

A technician is only as accurate as the measurement equipment they are using. If the equipment is used incorrectly or is faulty, then the measurements will be inaccurate. If the measurements are inaccurate, then the technician will draw the wrong conclusions. To avoid getting inaccurate readings, you need to handle, use, and store meters properly. When you are done using a multimeter, it should always be turned off to extend battery life.
