The State of Maine's Environment
The State of Maine's Environment is a series of reports written by the Colby Environmental Policy Group, a group of senior environmental policy majors at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. This is the sixth report created by students enrolled in ES 493: Environmental Policy Practicum.
The 2010 report examines five topics of importance to Maine: State Parks, Lakes, Biomass Energy, Renewable Ocean Energy, and Downeast Maine. For each issue, we explore the history of the topic, laws and regulations, stakeholders, the current state of the topic, future scenarios, and implications of our findings that we relate to the future state of the topic. We conclude each chapter with recommendations based on our analyses. To learn more about the authors see short bios on the About Us page.
Key Issues in Ethiopia 2011
Key Issues in Ethiopia 2011 is the first internationally focused report in a series of reports written by the Colby Environmental Policy Group, a group of senior environmental policy majors at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. The group was taught by Professor Travis Reynolds.
ES 212: Atlas of MaineThe Atlas of Maine 2011 was developed by students in ES212: Introduction to GIS and Remote Sensing. This course is a comprehensive theoretical and practical introduction to the fundamental principles of geographic information systems and remote sensing digital image processing taught by Philip Nyhus, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at Colby College.

The Atlas of Maine was the first of two projects completed by the students. The Atlas emphasized "visual GIS." The goal of this project was to develop a series of visually striking maps illustrating Maine's unique natural and human resources. Full-scale posters were developed and presented at the annual Colby Undergraduate Research Symposium.
For their second project, the students completed independent projects that emphasized "analytical GIS." To see the student's GIS research projects, click here.
