Environmental Service Learning and Community Partnerships: Applying Science-Based Solutions to Urban Environmental Problems part of Field Experiences:Posters
The IUPUI Center for Earth and Environmental Science utilizes local field research sites and community partners to conduct service learning with introductory earth and environmental science students. Environmental ...
Investigating the student experience of field work part of Field Experiences:Posters
This project investigated the student feelings towards residential field work in geology and geography disciplines. They mostly like it!
Field-oriented learning for earth science teachers 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.
THE CASE OF THE MYSTERY CONGLOMERATE: SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES ON FIELD TRIPS part of Field Experiences:Posters
Interdisciplinary Field Investigations of a Campus Pond part of Field Experiences:Posters
The primary activity described here is measurement of sub-surface water properties in a local pond (e.g., temperature and dissolved oxygen). This activity combines concepts and skills from Geology, Biology and ...
Rainbow Basin, CA mapping project part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Activities
Basic field mapping of a faulted syncline, with a couple of alluvial unconformities. Exposures are excellent, and the fold is of a scale that is easily seen from many vantage points. This exercise forms the basis ...
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. -
Geochemistry all around us part of Cutting Edge:Geochemistry:Activities
We look at a variety of natural waters in and around Appleton over the course of the term. The goal is for students to recognize differences and how those play into the topics we have covered in the course.
Rock Samples and Geochemistry Analyses part of Cutting Edge:Geochemistry:Activities
We will emphasize the importance of rock sampling and preparation for geochemistry analyses.
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, ...
Integrating research methods into geochemistry using local resources part of Cutting Edge:Geochemistry:Activities
This is a semester-long project that introduces students to research methods and practices. Students learn both field and lab techniques and how to develop testable hypotheses. Using local resources is an easy way ...
Involving Undergraduates in the determination of the relationship between surface water and groundwater part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
Bringing geology Home to Undergraduates using your Surrounding part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
Borehole Logging from Sample Collection to Borehole Geophysics part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Drilling the borehole is only the beginning. Data collection, handling and interpretation are the most important aspects to the field hydrogeologist. This session will use an exercise that combines both physical ...
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 ...
Quantifying Groundwater Baseflow and Improving Math Skills through a Stream-Discharge Exercise part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
A two-part exercise is presented where students quantify stream discharge and use the data to determine groundwater baseflow. They first use tedious hand calculations to compute discharge; then develop their own ...
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 ...
Melting Glaciers, Gravels and Groundwater part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
A spectacular gravel quarry five miles west of Schenectady New York along the Mohawk River is an ideal place to discuss deglaciation history and the development of the ancestral Mohawk Delta building into former ...
Using Wetlands to Teach Hydrogeology part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Field exercises (surface-water, vadose-zone, and groundwater hydrology), in which students generate their own data throughout the semester, are presented for teaching hydrogeological concepts, techniques, and ...
Dye Trace Experiment using "Aerial" Imagery part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
This exercise allows students monitor a dye plume in a stream using digital images collected by "remote aerial tramway".
