Borehole analysis using stereographic projection part of Activities
Eric Nelson, Colorado School of Mines
Advanced stereonet project using unoriented core structural data. The project gives practice in plotting small circles and in rotations. -
Using THEMIS Images of Mars Graben in a Structural Geology Course part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students use Mars THEMIS images of normal faults to learn to recognize features of normal faults systems that are typically obscured on Earth by erosion and/or deposition and to calculate displacement and estimate ...
Using the Autocorrelation Function in NIH-Image to Determine Shape-Preferred Orientations part of Activities
Cameron Davidson, Carleton College
Students learn how to use the autocorrelation function in NIH-Image to quantify shape-preferred orientations. Students develop understanding of what the autocorrelation function does by using synthetic images and ...
Venus, Earth's structural sister: Investigations using radar imagery part of Activities
Vicki Hansen, University of Minnesota-Duluth
Students conduct fieldwork on Venus without leaving the lab. Concepts include basic mapping principles, remote data set interpretation, structure morphology and interaction, rheology, temporal relations, and ...
Introduction to Digital Mapping with a PocketPC part of Activities
Charles Onasch, Bowling Green State University-Main Campus
This project is an introduction to digital field mapping with a PocketPC computer and GPS receiver. -
Field Trip Comics part of Activities
Andy Bobyarchick, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
Structural geology field trips integrate learning, collaboration, and exploration. Creating a comic (or graphic novel) from a field trip promotes students' rendering their own popular culture view of the ...
Introducing Geologic Map Interpretation and Cross Section Construction Using Google Earth part of Activities
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
A highly effective, non-traditional approach for using Google Earth to teach strike, dip, and geologic map interpretation. -
Cyber-mapping for Teaching Undergraduate Geosciences Courses part of Activities
Mohamed Abdelsalam, University of Texas at Dallas, The
