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 ...
Using play-doh to understand 3D Flinn Plots part of Activities
Carol Ormand, Carleton College
In this activity, students are introduced to the 3D Flinn Plot. They have previous experience with 1+e2 vs. 1+e1 plots of plane strain, but this is their first exposure to 3D strain. Students deform play-doh, then ...
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. -
Slinky and Waves part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
This physical model presented by Jeffrey S. Barker, Associate Professor of Geophysics, Pennsylvania State University. Starting Point page organized by R.M. MacKay.
Use a Slinky to show:P and S waves, Wave reflection, and Standing waves in interactive lecture demonstration. -
Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Mathematical and Statistical Models Examples
JAVA Applet and activity provided by Visual Entities. Starting Point page organized by R.M. MacKay.
Students vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of four concentric regions of Earth and match "data" for travel times vs. angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to ...
Looking into Earth with GIS (College Level) part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with GIS:Examples
College-level adaptation of the Earth Exploration Toolbook chapter. Students work with a free GIS program, ArcVoyager SE, to explore earthquake data and plate tectonics. -
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 ...
Fracturing Demonstration using a Hydraulic Press part of Activities
James Harris, Millsaps College
This demonstration supplements investigation of the physical process of brittle deformation. A hydraulic press is used to fracture a core of the Yazoo Clay (Upper Eocene Jackson Group) of central Mississippi. The ...
Profiling Earth's Surface using GeoMapApp part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:MARGINS Mini-Lessons
Laura Wetzel, Eckerd College
In this exercise, students relate large-scale features on Earth's surface to lithospheric plates, the underlying asthenosphere, earthquakes, and volcanoes. After creating a cross section showing elevation using GeoMapApp, students add additional features by hand.
Be the Block: Working the Geologic Block Diagram as an Inquiry Tool part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Activities
Eric Pyle, James Madison University
Working with data, students develop 3-D understandings of Earth structures using inference to construct a block diagram from a collection of 2-D information.
