NanTroSEIZE in 3-D
Donald Reed, San Jose State University
We have developed a web-based virtual expedition, NanTroSEIZE in 3-D, based on a seismic survey associated with the NanTroSEIZE program of NSF-MARGINS and IODP to study the properties of the plate boundary fault ...
Learning About Marine Sediments Using Real Data
Kristen St. John, James Madison University
This exercise set explores marine sediments using real core photos and composition data from the scientific ocean drilling programs DSDP, ODP, and IODP in an inquiry-based approach.
Identifying Plate Tectonic Boundaries for a Virtual Ocean Basin
Steve Reynolds, Arizona State University - Downtown Phoenix
Students observe an ocean basin and two continental margins to identify possible plate boundaries and predict where earthquakes and volcanoes would occur. They also draw the boundaries in cross section.
Klaus Neumann, Ball State University
Students read reports about potential sources for tsunamis on the US east coast and compare them with previously discussed dangers for the west cost.
Exploring Seafloor Topography
DATA: Digital Elevation Model Data. TOOL: GeoMapApp. SUMMARY: Explore a timeline about how we have learned about the oceans. Construct a profile across the Atlantic Ocean and create 3-D visualizations of the seafloor.
Sonar Demonstration -- Human Sound Wave
Kent Syverson, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
Sonar technology allowed scientists to produce high-resolution maps of the sea floor for the first time. This sonar demonstration uses a Human Sound Wave to image the "sea floor" in a lecture hall. In ...
Marine Environmental Geology
Course taught by Prof. Ed Laine, Bowdoin College (email@example.com) and Cathryn Field, Lab Instructor (firstname.lastname@example.org). Example compiled by Suzanne Savanick, Science Education Resource Center (email@example.com).
This course is an introduction to the aspects of marine geology and oceanography that affect the environment and marine resources. Service-learning is an essential component of how students learn about the earth. We deliver part of the content of this course by arranging for students to solve a problem with a local community partner.
Interpreting the History, Geology, and Ecology of Monterey Bay
Course instructor: Dr. Steve Moore, California State University, Monterey Bay Example compiled by Suzanne Savanick, Science Education Resource Center.
This is a 2-unit Service Learning option associated with the "Special Topics: The History, Geology, and Ecology of Monterey Bay" course. Students will learn about Monterey Bay in the special topics course and will share their knowledge with K-12 grade children at local schools by participating in the Virtual Canyon Project.
Ocean Stratigraphy Challenge
Rebecca Teed, Wright State University-Main Campus
A 15-20 minute think-pair-share activity interpreting a deep-sea sediment core combining concepts from oceanography, sedimentology, and plate tectonics. -
Discover Clues from a Colder Climate with GeoMapApp
DATA: Global Digital Elevation Model (DEM) TOOLS: GeoMapApp, Spreadsheet SUMMARY: Use GeoMapApp to search for evidence of glacial expansion and retreat. Produce a research report of your findings modeled on peer-reviewed papers in the field of glaciology.
