In this course we use the language of complex adaptive systems to consider models of global earth energy systems, as well as local processes. We will consider the physical, economic, material, and social impact of these energy systems via case studies, paying attention to ethical issues. This will allow us to define and identify desirable traits of sustainable energy systems which we will practice by observing, mapping, and evaluating real experimental sustainable systems. We will compare and contrast constraints and opportunities in future energy systems. 

Prerequisite: Requires concurrent registration in IDSC 198

Evan A Rich, Arjendu K Pattanayak

A traditional introduction to classical mechanics using the Newtonian worldview. The kinematics and dynamics of some simple systems are investigated using Newton's laws, vector analysis, and the conservation laws of momentum and energy. Comfort with algebra and the integration and differentiation of elementary functions is assumed. Weekly laboratory work.

Prerequisite: Mathematics 101 or 111, not open to students who have completed Physics 143, 144 or 145 at Carleton

Arjendu K Pattanayak

An introduction to principles of physics and their application to the environment. Topics include energy and its flows, engines, energy efficiency, energy usage and conservation in vehicles and buildings, the atmosphere, and climate change. Comfort with algebra and the integration and differentiation of elementary functions is assumed. Weekly laboratory work or field trips.

Prerequisite: Mathematics 101, 111 (completion or concurrent registration) and Physics 131 (completion or concurrent registration), 143, 144 or 145
