Using Internet technology to deliver an inquiry-based Earth systems course designed for middle school teachers
Abstract: The past decade has seen the exponential growth of the Internet as a tool to deliver on-line instruction at all educational levels. Many first generation on-line courses employed strategies ...

Crustal structure and tectonics from the Los Angeles basin to the Mojave Desert, southern California
A seismic refraction and low-fold reflection survey, known as the Los Angeles Region Seismic Experiment (LARSE), was conducted along a transect extending from Seal Beach, California, to the Mojave ...

Misconception of energy release in earthquakes
Analyzes how textbooks define and describe an earthquake focus or hypocenter. Provides examples from textbooks that reflect an absence of precision in words and diagrams that can foster ...

Scent of a myth: tectonics, geochemistry and geomythology at Delphi (Greece)
Extensive geochemical investigation (of water, travertine, soil and diffuse gas), coupled with geo-structural analysis, provides new insights into local fault-fluid interaction and allows us to ...

Rainfall-induced lahars in the Belham Valley, Montserrat, West Indies
Rain falling on loose volcanic debris over the Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat generates hazardous floods in the Belham Valley. These rainfall-induced lahars vary greatly in discharge and ...
