Investigating Plate Tectonics with Google Earth part of Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Beth Pratt-Sitaula, UNAVCO
Students examine data sets of topography, bathymetry, volcano location, earthquake location and size, and ocean floor age in Google Earth to determine the location and attributes of different types of plate ...
Student Field Guide part of Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Katherine Boggs, Mount Royal University
This activity was inspired by the "Pet Rock" project of Daryl Henry. I developed this activity to be a capstone experience for our students. During the fall 4th year field trip, students are responsible ...
Global Topography and Tectonic Plates part of Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
David Greene, Denison University
The goal of this activity is to investigate global topographic and tectonic features, especially the tectonic plates and their boundaries. Using a double-page size digital topographic map of the Earth that includes ...
Maxwell Behavior of Cake part of Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Christie Rowe, McGill University
Uses 3 points of entry to introduce students to viscoelastic rheology: A hands-on exercise with cake as the deformable material, an accessible example of an artificial material, and using literature to apply the ...
Structural Geology 'Research' Conference part of Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Julie Willis, Brigham Young University-Idaho
In this assignment students read and discuss a peer-reviewed journal article and prepare for and attend our class 'research' conference. In the conference they present on an area of current research as ...
Crust-Busting Faults part of Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
George Davis, The University of Arizona
Students independently research a major ancient or active regional fault, and cogently describe map and cross sectional characteristics, kinematics, mechanics, and plate tectonic significance. They present results ...
The News Hour part of Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
George Davis, The University of Arizona
An activity that I successfully used twice in teaching Active Tectonics is one I call "The News Hour," patterned after the PBS New Hour. I generated the idea out of concern that active tectonics sets of ...
Google Earth Exercises for Structural Geology part of Cutting Edge:Enhance Your Teaching:Visualization:Examples
Students use imagery taken from Google Earth to create photo-geologic maps of areas with various structural styles. Concepts include basic geologic mapping principles, remote data set interpretation, ...
Evolution of Normal Fault Systems During Progressive Deformation part of Activities
Bob Burger, Smith College
This activity is based on QuickTime movies and color digital photographs derived from sandbox experiments that produce normal faults in a variety of boundary conditions following experiments developed by Ken ...
Mapping commingled magmas, Eastern Head of Isle Au Haut, Maine part of Cutting Edge:Develop Program-Wide Abilities:Geoscience in the Field:Activities
Dykstra Eusden, Bates College
This is a week-long bedrock mapping project on Isle Au Haut, in Penobscot Bay, Maine, with three to four field days followed by 1-2 lab days. The bedrock is Silurian gabbro and granite that commingled in a magma ...
