Hydraulic Conductivity of Porous Media Exercise part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This activity provides the hydrogeology students an exercise to understand specific discharge, hydraulic conductivity, and porous media. They will actually use a Darcy column to gather data on porous media, as well ...

Dilutions and Spectral Properties of Solutions part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
The purpose of this week's lab is to - prepare calibration standards - use a UV-Vis spectrometer to determine the spectral peaks for several dye solutions, and create a calibration curve - calculate how much ...

Isotopes in the Hydrogeologic System part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
The students will use activities to understand atomic mass and isotopes and stable isotopic fractionation in the hydrologic system.

Landscapes part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
The first lab for an online introductory soils course for non-majors, this lab introduces students to landscapes and spatial patterns using Google Earth. In addition to learning to navigate in the imagery software, ...

Particle Size Analysis, Soil Texture, and Hydraulic Conductivity part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Lab: Particle Size Analysis, Soil Texture, and Hydraulic Conductivity

Analysis of Hydrochemical Data part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
In this activity students examine groundwater flow path based on hydraulic head data/ potentiometric surface and spatial variation of groundwater chemistry. Students analyze the data using AquaChem and Phreeqc ...

Soil Under the Microscope Mini-Workshop part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This mini-workshop is a brief introduction to the use of the polarized light microscope for thin-section analysis of soils, known as micromorphology. It assumes only a rudimentary knowledge of mineralogy and ...

Introduction to urban watershed geochemistry part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
The main goal of this multi-part field and lab exercise is to introduce students to practical aspects of soil and water geochemistry. Some of the analyses for this lab are conducted in the field using field ...

Forestry Management Plan Revision part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
The importance of soils is often underestimated in establishing management or restoration plans. Students examine soils at Echo Valley Park in the field, and use information from the USDA NRCS soil series ...

Soil Biota part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
In teams of two, students collect samples from one or two different environments -- agricultural fields, sports turf areas, lawns, forest floor, wetland/pond margin, greenhouse, etc. They construct a Berlese funnel ...
