  1. Potential Scenario Ideas : nuclear fusion for electric power generation?

    17 Jan 2022 | Contributor(s):: Andrew M Ross

    It occurred to me that students thinking about climate change might want to take a look at electric power generation via nuclear fusion. I know very little about this area, but perhaps someone out there does? I think students would be interested in just about any of the proposed technologies:...

  2. Potential Scenario Ideas : climate change: temperature, CO2, and some other factor in a feedback loop?

    17 Jan 2022 | Contributor(s):: Andrew M Ross

    Looking at graphs of atmospheric CO2 and global average temperature, such as this famous one from "An Inconvenient Truth" https://smallpond.ca/jim/ref/inconvenientTruth/full/00_22_49.jpgor the 2nd graph on this...

  3. 10-100-S-InsectOutbreaks

    17 Aug 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Jacob Paul Duncan

    The mountain pine beetle (MPB, Dendroctonus ponderosae), a tree-killing bark beetle, has historically been part of the normal disturbance regime in lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) forests. In recent years, warmer weather has allowed MPB populations to achieve synchronous emergence and successful...

  4. 1-088-S-RoomTemperature

    15 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Tracy Weyand

    Students will analyze temperature variations in a room using Newton's Cooling Law. In this model, the only influence on the indoor temperature is the (oscillating) outdoor temperature (as we assume the heating/cooling system is broken). The main goal of this project is for students to set up...

  7. 1-114-S-EarthClimate

    09 Dec 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Terrance Pendleton

    In this modeling scenario, we investigate the Earth's climate using a zero-dimensional energy balance model. Energy balance models are climate models that try to predict the average surface temperature of the Earth from solar radiation, emission of radiation to outer space, and Earth's...

  8. 2019-Bukaita, Wisam Victor Yossif; Kelcey Meaney; and Angie Dimopulos - Ice Coverage in the Arctic Climate over time

    17 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Wisam Victor Yossif Bukaita, Kelcey Meaney, Angie Dimopulos

    In this paper, entitled Ice Coverage in the Arctic Climate, from two students, Angie Dimopulos and Kelcey Heaney, and their professor, Dr. Wisam Bukaita, ice coverage in the Arctic is modeled over time. We present their abstract here and include the paper itself.ABSTRACT The Arctic plays a...
