How acidic is the rain if atmospheric CO2 concentration doubles? part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Students use basic aqueous geochemistry knowledge to investigate controls of the atmospheric carbon dioxide level on pH values of the wet precipitation at standard conditions (25 oC, 1 atmospheric pressure).

Isotopes and Tracers part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This assignment offers students several problems that help them understand the basic of mixing models and their use in understanding the controls on water quality in the environment. The purpose of the assignment ...

Public Information Campaign: Soil Erosion, Conservation, and Watershed Health part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Students in groups of two create a 4-minute educational video, brochure, and poster on an aspect of soil erosion, soil conservation, and/or watershed health for agricultural regions within the midwestern states. ...

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, ...

Co-evolution of Life and Minerals part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Based on the 2010 Scientific American paper by Hazen, and the more technical 2008 paper of Hazen et al, both of which explore the effect of the biosphere on the tremendous number of mineral species that occur on ...

Soil Biogeochemical Cycles part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This group activity charges students with teaching their colleagues about the biogeochemical cycle of one key soil element (e.g., either C, N, S, P, Ca, or Fe). Students are given a single class period to summarize ...

Integrated Critical Zone project part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This project is a way to assemble information about geology, hydrogeology, and soils into a coherent whole in a way that may otherwise not happen in any one class. The "critical zone" concept ties the ...

Campus Field Soil Geomorphology part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
In this activity, students have an opportunity to learn about the geomorphology and soils of your campus. Within a team, students collect soils information and use it to construct of stratigraphic cross-section and ...

Investigating a Real-Life Groundwater Contamination Event part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This assignment is designed as a final project for students in my undergraduate 3 credit non lab elective geohydrology course. Students work in pairs to analyze an actual, local contaminated site (Delphi) and use ...
