Kara Salazar Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Center for Earth and Environmental Science - The Lilly ARBOR Project is an urban riparian restoration project designed for use as an outdoor ...

Using Data to Teach Earth ProcessesAn Illustrated Community Discussion at the 2003 Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of America part of Cutting Edge:Data, Simulations and Models:Workshop 03:Activities
Kirsten Nicolaysen Department of Geology - KSU - We introduced introductory geology and archaeology students to research using the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) at KSU. Students selected images of a ...

Using Field Observations and Field Experiences to Teach GeoscienceAn Illustrated Community Discussion part of Field Experiences:Posters
This course enhances science literacy by emphasizing the repeated practice of making observations, posing questions & developing hypotheses around a narrowly focused aspect of Minnesota Geology. Students ...

Using Field Observations and Field Experiences to Teach GeoscienceAn Illustrated Community Discussion part of Field Experiences:Posters
Students are introduced to sedimentary rocks through field observations and measurements of sediments in different environments. This allows them to proceed from processes to products and engages them through field ...

Using Field Observations and Field Experiences to Teach GeoscienceAn Illustrated Community Discussion part of Field Experiences:Posters
Teachers are immersed in an intense, graduate-level study of Minnesota geology using a model of inquiry-based field studies to deepen their understanding of the principles of geoscience and to develop field ...

Using Field Observations and Field Experiences to Teach GeoscienceAn Illustrated Community Discussion part of Field Experiences:Posters
Students work with data bases and GIS to develop saturated thickness maps. Each data base consists of observations made by drillers where they have encountered the High Plains aquifer base and the annual ...

Using Field Observations and Field Experiences to Teach GeoscienceAn Illustrated Community Discussion part of Field Experiences:Posters
In-service teachers learn about environmental geology and how to teach earth science using outdoor activities and resources near their schools.

Introduction to Digital Mapping with a PocketPC part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Activities
This project is an introduction to digital field mapping with a PocketPC computer and GPS receiver. -

Acid Mine Drainage Field-Lab Experience Round 1 part of Cutting Edge:Geochemistry:Activities
This contribution outlines a trip with my Geochemistry class to the Ely Mine, a massive sulfide mine (Besshi-type) in east-central Vermont and the field work they did there. We spent a full day discussing the site, ...

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 ...

Pathogenic Microorganisms in Water part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
This activity introduces students to sampling and testing for microorganisms in different water sources. It also tests iodine tablets to kill coliform bacteria which interest many students. The activity utilizes ...

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 ...

Geophysics in the community part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
In this activity students develop independent or small group research projects in collaboration with local community organizations, or with the goal of investigating a topic relevant to the greater community. This ...

In-situ Density from Gravity by Nettleton part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
This activity develops students' understanding of gravity data corrections and density estimates by using a gravimeter to collect data and then interpret this data to find an estimate for the local bulk ...

Ray Paths part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
Students work in groups to "walk" through the ray paths of the direct wave, ground roll, reflected wave, and refracted wave. This exercise gives them a visual image of the ray paths as well as the ability ...

Learning how to use resistivity soundings for interpretation of subsurface stratigraphy part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
This activity uses a combination of field measurements, lab experiments and simple modeling to develop an understanding of electrical resistivity methods as a tool in geology and hydrology. Students work in groups ...

Ground-penetrating and Space-born Radar part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
This is a introductory lecture on ground-penetrating radar and space-born radar, a classroom data classifying activity, and descriptions of field and extended activities.

Measuring bankfull channel features, bed sediment, and bed load part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
The students gain field experience measuring bankfull channel characteristics in an urban park, and apply their measurements to determine whether the channel is 'adjusted' to its incoming flow regime and ...
