Dream Project/Term Project Proposal D-Lab: Water Climate Change and Health

The proposal describes your dream project. The proposal is your opportunity to detail the scope of your project, its context, what you need to make this happen, your timeline and milestones, who are your teammates if you have teammates, or if you are planning to proceed individually.

In the first deliverable, it does not need to be a fully formed proposal but a rough first draft. There’s no specific page requirement, but 4 to 8 pages of text total, or perhaps 10+ PowerPoint slides might be a good length.

Project 1: Mass and Wind Weather and Climate Laboratory

The purpose of this project is to study, using meteorological observations and laboratory experiments, the relation between the wind field and the mass field in a rotating system. In part I we explore the relationship in laboratory experiments; in part II atmospheric observations of intense cyclones and hurricanes are used.

Exercise 3: Stereonets Introduction to Geology

This exercise is designed to familiarize you with the basic structure and use of a stereonet, which we use to draw our projections. In this exercise we will actually use equal-area projections rather than true stereographic projections, because they are easier to draw while being just as useful for most purposes

Discussion Question - Why Eat Less Meat Ethics In Your Life: Being Thinking Doing (or Not?)

The website Why Eat Less Meat cites four major reasons to eat less meat: the efficiency of the global food system, the environment, health (both personal and public), and animal welfare. Which of these reasons to eat less meat do you find most compelling? Are any of these reasons (or the combination of them) compelling enough to make you think you personally should eat less meat? Why or why not?

Final Report D-Lab: Energy

The purpose of the final report is to document your project so that community partners and/or future students interested in your work can understand it, avoid repetition, and make further progress. As a team, write a 12-15 page report describing your project.
