Homework due for 15/3/2017

For those of you in the first tutorial this morning, I have added the data and modified the Tutorial2 .doc file this afternoon. They work properly now.

Homework for next week:

  1. Please come to class on the 15th with your partner and crop species selected (if not already selected). I will be emailing you your final assignment if you have one now, and if there is a conflict with the species and you must choose another.
  2. Progress through the first 10 pages of the Tutorial 2 document.
  3. The first mini documentary assignment will be due on the 15th by 5PM handed in to me, Luci. The assignment is available on the course NISL site -…/ESS_221/Mini%20Documentary%20Ass…/.
    • The assignment can be typed or hand written - it can be turned in via email to me at or in person. Assignments handed in after 5PM will have a 10% penalty for each day late.
    • The videos are available at their links listed on the course outline. They are also on the lecturer's desktop in BCB 5th Floor lab. If you downloaded the videos from NISL - they require a password; the password is dolphin.

I will be around tomorrow morning and Friday morning to help anyone who needs it. Remember, I am not on campus on Mondays or Tuesdays. I am available by email though at

Welcome to ESS 221 - Climate Change and Adaptation

Greetings ESS 221 Students!

I hope we have all made it through the holidays well and are prepared for this academic year.

This course will be taught by me, Luci Coleman, and supervised and coordinated by Dr. Rich Knight (who has traditionally taught this course).

We have created an email for this course - If you have any questions or concerns related to the course, please email me here - I will be monitoring emails daily.

You can also post inquiries on the ESS facebook group - ESS UWC.

Going forward into the semester - all assignments will be assigned in class - paper copies of assignments will be handed out as appropriate. Assignments will also be posted (with appropriate documentation) on this blog as well as onto the ESS UWC facebook group.

My advice is to stay organized!
