Pinnacle Mountain Field Project part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
Students collect, analyze, and interpret field data and identify and read literature on the possible origins of the block-fields on Pinnacle Mountain, central Arkansas.

Subject: Geomorphology: Geoscience:Geology:Geomorphology:Landforms/Processes:Hillslopes, Geoscience:Geology:Geomorphology:Climate/Paleoclimate

The geomorphology of home part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
In this lab, students read and interpret 1) peer-reviewed literature, 2) LIDAR-derived hillshade maps, and 3) the landscape itself to better understand the geomorphology of their local urban/suburban environment ...

Mapping a local Dune Field, and estimating paleowind speed and direction part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
We visit the Pinebush dune field in eastern New York State (20 minutes from campus). Students map one large parabolic dune, and collect sample of dune sand. In the lab, students map the dune field from aerial ...

Viewing geomorphic landforms with Google Earth part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
Geomorphic processes are not limited to the local or regional area around the University and most students have not been outside of the region. With today's technology we are able to see features on the ...

Dam the Wilderness: Building "Green Hydropower" on Big Creek part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
Students exercise knowledge of how dams impact physical and biological systems to try to design a dam that minimizes its impacts while still meeting power production and water diversion requirements.
