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 ...
Did it Rain on Mars? Analysis of Valley Networks on Mars in an Intro Geo Course part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students investigate the question of whether it might have rained on Mars by doing an activity based on an article by Hynek and Phillips (2003). Students do a simple drainage basin analysis based on Hynek and ...
Emergent Models in Google Earth part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Declan De Paor, Old Dominion University
This is one sample of a set of emergent models we are developing for use with Google Earth. Students use the Google Earth time-slider to lift 3D models of the subsurface into view. They can substitute their own ...
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. -
Geologic Mapping on Mars part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Germari De Villiers, Auburn University Main Campus
This lab acivity gives students the opportunity to choose an area to map (with tracing paper and coloured pencils) from among some varied Martian terrains. -
Mars Hydrologic Environments part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Arwen Vidal, University of Colorado at Boulder
This activity examines the nature of streams and basins at three locations on Mars. Originally meant for users with access to ArcGIS, the exercise can also be used in introductory geology courses using images ...
Comparative Planetary Geomorphology part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Jennifer Anderson, Winona State University
This is a laboratory exercise to introduce comparative planetary geomorphology by investigating common geologic features on the Earth, Moon, and Mars. -
