Assignment part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
First assignment of the course

Isotopes in the Hydrogeologic System part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
The students will use activities to understand atomic mass and isotopes and stable isotopic fractionation in the hydrologic system.

Hydrogeology Research Project part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This activity is for students to work in teams (2012) or individually (2013) to develop a project (such as a physical or numerical model), survey based research, case study, technical briefs on a remediation ...

Dynamic Reservoir - In-class activity part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This is an in-class activity analyzing our drinking water reservoir, but would apply to any reservoir for which there are basic crest/elevation data and maps available.

Aquifer Characterization part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Well Field Practice: aquifer characterization through conducting and interpreting of aquifer pump tests.

Spatial and Temporal Tracer Test Data Analysis part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This is an assignment I worked on with Dr. Brusseau (University of Arizona) for his Contaminant Transport class. In this problem solving exercise, students are provided data sets that could be obtained by ...

Particle Size Analysis, Soil Texture, and Hydraulic Conductivity part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Lab: Particle Size Analysis, Soil Texture, and Hydraulic Conductivity

Analysis of Hydrochemical Data part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
In this activity students examine groundwater flow path based on hydraulic head data/ potentiometric surface and spatial variation of groundwater chemistry. Students analyze the data using AquaChem and Phreeqc ...

A Case Study: Geology, Remediation, Investigation at a RR Repair Shop Brownfield Site, St. Paul, Minnesota part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
A case-study approach can be used to introduce students to the work that geologists do as environmental consultants. Data used by environmental consultants for a Brownfield site that is currently undergoing ...

A River Through Time: Managing the Upper Mississippi River part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
Students explore river processes by following the Army Corps of Engineers' historic efforts to 'improve' the Mississippi River channel for navigation. Students design a river management scheme of ...

JiTT - Dam Removal - A Good Idea or Not? part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Just in Time Teaching:Examples
1) What are some of the biological effects of dam removal (good and bad)? 2) What are some of the more pressing/compelling reasons to remove a dam? Explain. 3) The Stanley and Doyle (2003) article states that, ...

Borehole Logging from Sample Collection to Borehole Geophysics part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Drilling the borehole is only the beginning. Data collection, handling and interpretation are the most important aspects to the field hydrogeologist. This session will use an exercise that combines both physical ...

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Water Resources part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
This activity will demonstrate how water quality and environmental health issues can be analyzed together, how hydrologic information can be built up, and how decisions can be made using GIS.

Melting Glaciers, Gravels and Groundwater part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
A spectacular gravel quarry five miles west of Schenectady New York along the Mohawk River is an ideal place to discuss deglaciation history and the development of the ancestral Mohawk Delta building into former ...

Using A Quarry Pump Test to Determine Aquifer Properties, Calculate Water Budgets, and Assess Good Field Practices part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
The exercise provides an opportunity to discuss pump test methods and perform a "worst-case" mass balance of the water pumped by including rainfall as an input.

Creating a Water Table Map for Newark Road Prairie part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
This field exercise emphasizes visualization of the water table over construction of a water table map. Students develop a water table map from scratch, including installing shallow monitoring wells, surveying ...

Non-traditional and under-represented students in hydrogeology: Learning by discovery in an urban environment part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
An example of student-driven, instructor-guided field experiments on a budget. Schools that cater to under-represented students are often those with limited resources, however, student-driven discovery in the field ...

Service Learning and Local Hydrogeology in the Classroom: An example from Anchorage, Alaska part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
A semester long project in which students work in small groups to analyze a local hydrogeology issue of importance to the community.

Water and Mud: Linking hydrogeology and landscape change part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Hydrogeology textbooks usually do a poor job in linking groundwater to Earth's surface processes, yet the two are closely linked. It is important for the hydrogeology student to understand that surface and ...

Western water law project part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
This activity allows students to use role-playing to learn about the connection between surface water and ground water.
