Environmental research encompasses many fields of science such as microbiology, climatology, marine biology, paleontology, and ecology just to name a few. Each of these fields contributes to our overall understanding of the complexities of our environment and how over time they have evolved and changed in many ways. In this class, students will be given an introduction into the field of marine geochemistry and learn about how different analysis, such as carbon dating and isotope geochemistry,...
My entire life I wanted to explore the ocean and the environment. I have always had a great appreciation for the processes that are not completely understood and the unknowns that have yet to be discovered in the environment. At the beginning of my professional career in research, I worked as a naturalist on a whale watch boat and as a laboratory technician working on environmental clean-up projects such as water and land pollution. Then I moved into my dream job of being a research chemist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in marine & geochemistry where I was able to be in the foundation of the research community and learn from many amazing scientists & researchers who devoted their lives to exploring the mysteries of the environment as well as protecting the animals and organisms living in it. For me, working as a student mentor with graduate and post-graduate students, made this experience one I will always cherish. As a teacher, I want my students to be excited about what they are learning and with my background in research, I will work extra hard to make sure that if there is an aspect of a topic that a student is interested in, I will make every effort to alter my lessons to include those topics.
Links to relevant websites will be provided as well as handouts provided by the teacher. No materials are required to purchase.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class utilizes the third-party tools Nearpod and Ck-12 Flexbooks. The students do not need to share any personal information in order to use the material for these particular tools, the teacher generates the login information from her own personal account and shares them with the students.
