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.
Using Data From the Arsenic Problem in Bangladesh part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
The Arsenic in drinking water issue in Bangladesh presents a unique opportunity to motivate studying hydrogeology in context of water resources issues in the developing world. Students learn about health and social ...
Hydrogeologic Mapping part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
A field exercise designed to give the students a visceral understanding of the geometry of the water table and the flow and transport consequences of that geometry.
Using Scant Data in Hydrogeology part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Using scant data to come to decisions is an integral part in consulting, but most students have little appreciation for it. This PowerPoint presentation gives some examples that can provide a template for classroom ...
Hydrologic Cycle and Water Balance Equation part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
The assignment works with the mass balance equation in concert with the hydrologic cycle. Students create both a conceptual model and a mathematical model to represent the hydrologic cycle for a basin.
Using the EXCEL Woburn Flow and Transport Model to Teach Modeling Concepts part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Modeling ties together many subjects taught in an introductory hydrogeology course. The goals of this activity are for students to learn why scientists and engineers use models, what types of models are commonly ...
'A Civil Action' 1-D Transport Game part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
The 'A Civil Action' 1-D Transport Game is executed in an EXCEL spreadsheet and is designed to help students learn why models are used by scientists and engineers and what procedures must be met to ...
Campus Nitrogen Budget part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Campus-Based Learning:Examples
Link the college or university operations with local ecology. In this study, students use a tool from urban ecology, the nitrogen budget, to research the inputs, outputs and subsytem transfers of nitrogen on the ...
TCE Transport to Woburn Wells G and H part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Transport of TCE to municipal wells G and H in Woburn, Massachusetts and link between the consumption of the polluted water and the cluster of childhood leukemia cases in east Woburn in were the central scientific ...
Induced Infiltration Animation: Woburn Wells G & H and the Aberjona River part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Induced infiltration of surface water into an unconfined aquifer by municipal wells is a common occurrence and an increasingly important regulatory issue across the U.S. The role of the Aberjona River in providing ...
Stream Gages and GIS part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with GIS:Examples
Utilize the online GIS of the USGS real-time stream gage network to introduce basic concepts of data-driven maps and GIS. This exercise can be used independently or with other hydrology exercises. -
Floodplains in the field (with GIS) part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with GIS:Examples
In this GIS-enhanced lab, students measure a topographic and geologic cross-section across a floodplain by simple surveying and auguring techniques. -
Image Classification part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with GIS:Examples
An exercise to use a simple image analysis program to classify land surface types seen in satellite imagery in order to analyze changes in landscape development over time. -
Discussion worksheets for popular literature readings on river processes and policy part of Cutting Edge:Public Policy:Activities
These five worksheets guide student preparation for in-class discussion of reading assignments from Life on the Mississippi, Cadillac Desert, and The Control of Nature.
Floods over time: death vs. destruction part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
This exercise looks at the dollar losses and deaths caused by flooding in the US, and at the causes of, and relationships between the two trends.
Flooding in the Finger Lakes Region, NY part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Quantitative Classroom Exercises part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
The four exercises give students an opportunity to use their knowledge of graphs, algebra, and maps to solve simple geological problems.
Gulf Anoxia Course Project part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
In this activity students work in groups to investigate the problem of Gulf of Mexico hypoxia before developing mitigation strategies based on local contriubtions to the problem. The students present their ideas in a public meeting debate format from which a solution must be selected by the entire class.
