How has the scarcity of water in the West caused so much controversy? A free online course that begins Wednesday by experts at the University of Colorado in Boulder will answer that question and lead students on a virtual journey as water makes its way from snow-capped mountains to taps.

“Water in the Western United States” is CU-Boulder’s latest “massive open online course,” lasting four and a half weeks and allowing students to explore the scientific, legal, political and cultural issues impacting water and climate in the West.

The course does not require any previous knowledge. It will be taught by Anne Gold, climate literacy and geoscience education specialist at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, and Eric Gordon, program manager of the Western Water Assessment, which is part of the institute on the CU-Boulder campus.

A series of short video lectures will be presented. Students can watch each week’s videos on their own schedules and then participate in various exercises and activities online.
