Floodplains in the field (with GIS)
Mary Savina, Carleton College; Brian Welch
In this GIS-enhanced lab, students measure a topographic and geologic cross-section across a floodplain by simple surveying and auguring techniques. -

Learning how to use resistivity soundings for interpretation of subsurface stratigraphy
Remke Van Dam, Michigan State University
This activity uses a combination of field measurements, lab experiments and simple modeling to develop an understanding of electrical resistivity methods as a tool in geology and hydrology. Students work in groups ...

Investigating the Geologic History of Southeast Minnesota by Constructing a Geologic Column
Amanda Ludeman
This activity is a field investigation where students gather data on rock types and geologic formations to construct a geologic column that will help them to interpret the geologic history of the Cannon Falls area.

Developing a local stratigraphy
Mary Savina, Carleton College
Students use field lab periods to construct a composite stratigraphic section of the area surrounding their campus. -

Assembling a Geologic History
Mary Savina, Carleton College

Using Field Observations and Field Experiences to Teach GeoscienceAn Illustrated Community Discussion
ZABEL, Garret & WHITE, Sylvia Colorado Mountain College-Roaring Fork Campus
This is a 10-day field experience class that focuses on the geology of the Grand Staircase of the Colorado Plateau, culminating in a rim-to-rim backpack trip across the Grand Canyon, Arizona.

Here we see it, but what's beneath? Effective geologic cross-section problem solving
Rob Benson, Adams State College
Students will use suface observations from a map to locate subsurface features using geologic cross-sections using topographic profiles, surface data, assessment of variables and data quality. Students will produce a standard scientific report describing the nature and conclusions of the project.

Stratigraphic Architecture of Table Rock, Boise, Idaho
Sam Matson, Boise State University
In the GEOS 315 – Sedimentology and Stratigraphy course at Boise State University, students conduct field research over a period of 4-5 weeks at Table Rock, a prominent sandstone plateau and popular hiking ...

Building a Local Stratigraphic Column: A research-based assignment for an introductory course
Jennifer Hargrave, Southern Utah University
Students build a stratigraphic column for a pre-selected area through the compilation of a series of individual research projects. Students are required to conduct introductory field research as well as a ...
