Analyzing the Antarctic Ozone Hole (College Level) part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with GIS:Examples

College-level adaptation of a chapter in the Earth Exploration Toolbook. Examine satellite images of atmospheric ozone in the Southern Hemisphere to study changes in concentration over a time. -

US Historical Climate: Excel Statistical part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Mathematical and Statistical Models Examples

Students import US Historical Climate Network mean temperature data into Excel from a station of their choice and use Excel for statistical calculations, graphing, and linear trend estimates. -

Earthquake Shaking and Damage part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

This student homework and problem set has students quantitatively earthquake hazard, shaking and damage.

Poleward Heat Transport Jigsaw part of Cutting Edge:Topics:Hurricanes-Climate Change Connection:Activities

Based on great plate tectonic exercise by Sawyer et al. (2005 JGE), this small-group exercise with maps of data about earth's energy balance helps students visualize poleward heat transport.

Earthquake Epicenter Location Exercise using Google Earth and OneNote part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities

Students are provided with data from 4 seismograms which are used to plot the epicenter of an earthquake using OneNote to pick the P-S wave arrival gap and Google Earth to plot the circles which intersect at the ...

Nearest-neighbor analysis and the distribution of sinkholes: an introduction to spatial statistics part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Geomorphology:Activities

This is an exercise I use in an upper-division geomorphology course to introduce students to nearest-neighbor analysis, a basic technic in spatial statistics. This technique provides an objective method for ...

Ozone Pollution part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities

This lab exercise is designed to provide a basic understanding of a real-world scientific investigation. Students are introduced to the concept of tropospheric ozone as an air pollutant due to human activities. ...

Paleotempestology Lab part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities

Paleotempestology Lab: this lab activity is designed to help students gain experience in relative and absolute dating techniques as well as a sense of how scientific investigations proceed.

Monument Creek hydraulics project part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Geomorphology:Activities

This is a several-part field and computer-based project that involves students in measurement of stream-channel geometry, basic stream-hydraulics calculations, and flood-frequency analysis. Its primary strengths ...

Red Beans and Rice: Slope failure experimental modeling part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Geomorphology:Activities

Students replicate a slope failure experiment published in Science (Densmore et al., 1997) using a simple, acrylic slope failure box in an effort to forge a link between autocyclic processes, long-term landscape ...

Groundwater Lab part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities

This lab uses "ant farm" groundwater models to demonstrate groundwater flow and the behavior of wells. The lab is organized so that students have to predict the behavior of the model before observing it.

Groundwater Consulting Lab part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities

Students are given a real-world scenario in this lab exercise in which they must determine the extent of groundwater contamination while staying within a budget. They progressively request more information and ...

Analyzing your Hometown Stream using On-line USGS NWIS Data part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities

Students analyze discharge records of streams or rivers of interest to them using on-line USGS NWIS data.

Global Temperatures part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students analyze the global temperature record from 1867 to the present. Long-term trends and shorter-term fluctuations are both evaluated. -

The Modern Atmospheric CO2 Record part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students compare carbon dioxide (CO2) data from Mauna Loa Observatory, Barrow (Alaska), and the South Pole over the past 40 years to help them better understand what controls atmospheric CO2. -

Earth's Radiation Budget: Part 1 part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with Data:Examples

In this activity students explore the Earth's radiation budget using Earth radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) data archived at the IRI/LDEO Climate Data Library (more info) . -

Investigation: When will there no longer be glaciers in Glacier National Park? part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Students use historical data on the extent of the Grinnell Glacier in Glacier National Park to estimate when the glacier will melt completely.

Flood Frequency and Risk Assessment part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Students calculate recurrence intervals for various degrees of flooding based on historical data. Students then do a risk assessment for the surrounding community.
