Experiments with particle settling
Lonnie Leithold, North Carolina State University at Raleigh
In this activity, students experiment with the effects of Reynolds numbers (viscosity), particle shape, and particle concentration (flocculation) on settling velocity.

Building a Facies Model
William W. Little, Brigham Young University-Idaho
Facies models are often abstract and difficult for undergraduate students to fully understand. As a result, they tend to memorize idealized diagrams from text books that can be reproduced for an exam, then ...

Building an Idealized Stratigraphic Sequence Clastic Shoreline Example
William W. Little, Brigham Young University-Idaho
The purpose of this exercise is to guide students through the process of constructing a stratigraphic sequence based on understanding relationships between the production of space and filling that space with ...

When should we move the marina?
Tom Hickson, University of St. Thomas (MN)
In this assignment students use real world data to solve an applied problem in geomorphology. They use ArcGIS and time sequential aerial photography to determine when a marina on Lake Mead must be moved to avoid ...
