Campus Mapping Tour part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Activities
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 ...

Urban Geology: GIS, Geologic/Geophysical Mapping

River Flooding and Erosion part of Cutting Edge:Urban Geology:Activities
Students take a real-life situation (river flooding and erosion), use real flood and map data, and make predictions and recommendations as to what to do to help alleviate the problem.
