Peer Review of Multimedia Web Sites Authored by Student Teams part of Teaching Activities
This activity is a peer-review exercise where students, as individuals, write templated reviews of draft web sites authored by student teams. The web sites are created over an entire term and relate to a topic ...

Forecasting Lake Effect Snow in Lake Superior region part of Cutting Edge:Hurricanes-Climate Change Connection:Activities
This exercise is designed to present the realistic problems of forecasting weather. Lake effect snows are hard to forecast because they depend on information that isn't part of the regular set of information ...

Tropical Cyclones, Sea Surface Temperature, and Beyond part of Cutting Edge:Hurricanes-Climate Change Connection:Activities
The activity will use historical data of sea surface temperature and tropical cyclone origin and/or tracks to identify trends. Students use Arc GIS to explore projected SST changes and predict areas where tropical ...

Hydraulic Geometry in the Greys River Watershed part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
Following lectures regarding catchment hydrology and fluvial processes, students complete a two day field analysis of a watershed from headwaters to outlet, measuring fluvial parameters such as channel geometry, ...

Groundwater-Surface Water Interactions part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
This activity has three exercises: measuring groundwater flow and velocity, measuring vertical gradients in piezometers, and sampling a well field. These field exercises are meant to give students better ...

Non-traditional and under-represented students in hydrogeology: Learning by discovery in an urban environment part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
An example of student-driven, instructor-guided field experiments on a budget. Schools that cater to under-represented students are often those with limited resources, however, student-driven discovery in the field ...

Hydrogeologic Mapping part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
A field exercise designed to give the students a visceral understanding of the geometry of the water table and the flow and transport consequences of that geometry.

Using Scant Data in Hydrogeology part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Using scant data to come to decisions is an integral part in consulting, but most students have little appreciation for it. This PowerPoint presentation gives some examples that can provide a template for classroom ...

Hydrologic Cycle and Water Balance Equation part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
The assignment works with the mass balance equation in concert with the hydrologic cycle. Students create both a conceptual model and a mathematical model to represent the hydrologic cycle for a basin.

Using Real Data from Ice Cores and Salt Cores to Interpret Paleoclimate part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
The goals of this project are to engage sedimentary geology students in critical thinking about global warming. I present information about how ice cores and halite cores record past temperature data. Then, ...
