Seafloor Spreading and Magnetic Anomalies
Donna Jurdy, Northwestern University
Students use seafloor maps of magnetic anomalies to compare and establish the spreading rates in the Atlantic and the Eastern Pacific Oceans.

Subject: Geology: Geoscience:Geology:Geophysics:Magnetism/Paleomag

Geophysics in the community
Jacqueline Caplan-Auerbach, Western Washington University
In this activity students develop independent or small group research projects in collaboration with local community organizations, or with the goal of investigating a topic relevant to the greater community. This ...

In-situ Density from Gravity by Nettleton
Scott White, University of South Carolina-Columbia
This activity develops students' understanding of gravity data corrections and density estimates by using a gravimeter to collect data and then interpret this data to find an estimate for the local bulk ...

Volcano Homework Assignment
Steven Jaume, College of Charleston
This assignment includes rank ordering lava flow data from Hawaii and using it to predict repeat times of lava flow areas. This and similar quantitative assignments emphasize power law frequency-magnitude ...

Ray Paths
, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge
Students work in groups to "walk" through the ray paths of the direct wave, ground roll, reflected wave, and refracted wave. This exercise gives them a visual image of the ray paths as well as the ability ...
