Structural Geometry from Outcrop Patterns part of Cutting Edge:Visualization:Examples
Charles Onasch, Bowling Green State University-Main Campus
Using Google Earth, students will investigate the relationship between the geometry of rock bodies and their outcrop patterns.
Exploring lithological assemblages and structural styles of granite-greenstone belts part of Cutting Edge:Early Earth:Activities
Dyanna Czeck, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
In this 1 week module, students use primary literature to study structural and tectonic styles within Archean granite-greenstone belts.
Fun with foam, demonstrating strike and dip in class part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Angela Moore, Guilford College
Colorful foam sheets are used in a classroom or lab setting to introduce students to the concept of strike and dip. It is interactive, and the instructor or TA's can quickly see which students are ...
Geologic Structures Lab part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
John Leland, Glendale Community College
In class activity involving a thought exercise about rock rheology, discussion and drawing of simple brittle and ductile structures, and then reading an article about how the depth of the brittle-ductile transition ...
Milky Way - Ductile and Brittle Demo part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Mark F. Wood
Milky way candy bar is given to each student. They are told to bend it and write down what they observe. The activity takes an every day object and ties the geologic terms to something they have experience with.
Walking Field Trip to the San Andreas Fault part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Fred Winkler, California State University-San Bernardino
Due to our University's unique location approximately one mile from the nearest trace of the San Andreas Fault, we are able to take students on a walking field trip to the San Andreas. On the trip we set the ...
Maps, Folds, Stereonets, and Complex Fabric Analysis part of Activities
John Weber, Grand Valley State University;
This analysis involves analyzing meso- and macro- structures shown on beautiful, rich, detailed, and well-prepared outcrop bedrock geology of a real region. Students construct a number of stereonets step-by-step, ...
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 ...
Campus Mapping Tour part of Activities
Helge Alsleben, Texas Christian University
This exercise allows students to learn how to produce a geologic map. Students will pair up and explore campus as a "virtual" field area. This works well in areas where outcrop is generally sparse, but ...
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. -
