Campus Mapping Tour part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology: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 Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Activities
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
A highly effective, non-traditional approach for using Google Earth to teach strike, dip, and geologic map interpretation. -

Structural Analysis of a Hot Dry Rock Geothermal Energy System part of Cutting Edge:Energy:Energy Activities
Tim Schroeder, Bennington College
This project applies basic geologic skills to the development of a geothermal electrical generation system. I use it in a structural geology, but it would be applicable to any intermediate to advanced level course ...

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.

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 ...

Geologic Maps and Geologic Structures: A Texas Example part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Roger Steinberg, Del Mar College
Students work with geologic maps of Texas, learning details of Texas geology, and reinforce knowledge and use of geologic structures, stratigraphic sections, and geologic cross sections.

Milky Way - Ductile and Brittle Demo part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Mark 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 ...

Earthquake Demonstration part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
This demonstration uses an "earthquake machine" constructed from bricks, sand paper, and a winch, to simulate the buildup of elastic strain energy prior to a seismic event and the release of that energy ...

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 ...
