Cyber-mapping for Teaching Undergraduate Geosciences Courses part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Activities
Mohamed Abdelsalam, University of Texas at Dallas, The
Using cyber-mapping three-dimensional (3D) photo-realistic digital replica of geological outcrop to explain geometry of geological structures. -

Outcrop Mapping at Woodall Shoals, South Carolina-Georgia part of Cutting Edge:Geoscience in the Field:Activities
Jonathan Mies, University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, The
Students work in groups of 3 or 4 to map relatively small parts of the outcrop at Woodall Shoals, which serves as a model of a complexly deformed high-grade metamorphic terrain. With the benefits of 100% exposure ...

Visualizing Earthquakes at Convergent Plate Margins part of Cutting Edge:Visualization:Examples
Cara Harwood, University of California-Davis
In this activity students visualize the distribution and magnitude of earthquakes at convergent plate boundaries. Earthquakes are visualized on a 3D globe, making it easy to see their distribution within ...

Understanding Geologic Maps part of Cutting Edge:Early Career:Previous Workshops:Workshop 2011:Teaching Activities
Cara Burberry, University of Nebraska at Lincoln
Exercise in deconstructing a geologic map & writing a geologic history of the area.

Threat of Flank Collapse at Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii: Case Example part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students evaluate fault and earthquake data plus focal mechanism solutions, and develop a picture of on-going deformation of the south flank of Kilauea Volcano that might one day transition to catastrophic flank ...

Crandall Canyon Mine Collapse, Utah: Case Example part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students evaluate whether pillar failure and collapse caused ground shaking or whether an earthquake caused pillar failure and mine collapse in the Crandall Canyon Mine collapse in 2007.

The Faults at Delphi, the Oracle, and the Tectonic Setting of the Gulf of Corinth: Case Example part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students interpret data on the faults at Delphi, evaluate the tectonic context of the faults, and explore the proposed connection between faults and the Delphic Oracle of Ancient Greece.

Reservoir-induced seismicity at Nurek Reservoir in Tajikistan: case example part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students use Google Earth to interpret aspects of the general bedrock geology and tectonic setting of the area around Nurek Reservoir in Tajikistan, evaluate reservoir induced seismicity associated with the ...

Increase in volcanism at the beginning of the Holocene on Reykjanes, Iceland: case example part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students make simple stress calculations to determine whether deglaciation at the end of the Pleistocene may have been responsible for a short but dramatic increase in rates of volcanism on Reykjanes in Iceland as ...

Fold mapping lab part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Martha Growdon, SUNY College at Oneonta
Students will map an overturned fold with axial planar cleavage and parasitic folds using hand samples set up around a classroom/outdoors.
