Designing Sedimentary Geology Courses Around Field Projects With Realistic Scenarios part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
Sedimentary geology courses can be structured around field projects that take advantage of the local geology and are placed within realistic situations to demonstrate the relevance of the work that sedimentologists ...
Pre-assessment: Gauging students' preparedness for Sedimentary Geology part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
This activity presents a process for assessing (1) students' educational background and field experience related to sedimentary geology, and (2) students' familiarity with selected concepts and ...
Sediments and the Global Carbon Cycle part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
This is a series of exercises designed to introduce undergraduate students to the role of sediments and sedimentary rocks in the global carbon cycle and the use of stable carbon isotopes to reconstruct ancient ...
Virtual Field Trip to the Book Cliffs part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
Problem-based learning techniques have been applied to geological datasets collected and published about the Cretaceous Book Cliffs exposures in Utah.
Digital Sandstone Tutorial part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
The Tutorial Petrographic Image Atlas is designed to give students more exposure to petrographic features than they can get during organized laboratory periods.
Bedform mapping in a coastal environment part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
Students use a learning cycle of prediction-observation- comparison to investigate diverse bedforms exposed at low tide at a beach/inlet/tidal-delta complex and to relate them to formative flows.
Using Computer Spatial Technologies (Geoplus Petra) for Subsurface Geological Analysis part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
The lab project is a culminating activity (following work with conventional core and petrophysical logs) in which the students compile a subsurface "project" using computer spatial technology software, ...
Bedforms to Facies to Prediction: Walther's Law and Sequence Stratigraphic Analysis, Blackhawk Formation, Utah part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
This field exercise challenges students to apply their knowledge of bedforms to interpret facies within a vertical section of the Blackhawk Formation, Utah. The students draft a vertical succession of the outcrop ...
Introduction to the properties of clay minerals part of Cutting Edge:Mineralogy:Activities
These laboratory experiments are designed to show the cation exchange capabilities of clays and how these exchanges affect physical properties.
Using NOAA NCDC Pollen Database to study vegetation history part of Cutting Edge:Climate Change:Activities
This lab exercise uses SiteSeer, a public domain software available through NOAA/NCDC, to learn how to retrieve and query the NOAA NCDC pollen database. Students first work through a set of simple exercises that ...
Mineral Classification - What's in a Name? part of Cutting Edge:Mineralogy:Activities
Students derive their own scheme for identifying and naming minerals. Examples include different minerals that have the same crystal forms, and mineral species that occur with numerous forms and varieties to ...
Examination of Igneous Silicates part of Cutting Edge:Mineralogy:Activities
Students study hand samples of light-colored igneous minerals and related mineral species. They look at some of the same minerals, and others, in thin section.
Modeling Glacier Erosion Through Time part of Cutting Edge:Climate Change:Activities
This lab could be adapted for an introductory geology course, upper division geomorphology course, or a climate change course. This activity is borrowed from John Harbor's paper in the Journal of Geoscience ...
Exercises to teach scientific reading comprehension and mineralogic concepts part of Cutting Edge:Mineralogy:Activities
With a set of tasks and questions as a guide, students read through an article doing the tasks and answering questions as they go. The object is to develop a comprehensive understanding of the science in the paper.
Simulation of international negotiations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions part of Cutting Edge:Climate Change:Activities
In order to convey how the international community is responding to climate change, students engage in a simulation of the international negotiation process. Participants learn first hand the interests of different ...
Maps, Folds, Stereonets, and Simple Fabric Analysis part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Activities
This analysis involves analyzing structures shown on beautiful, rich, detailed, and well-prepared outcrop bedrock geology of a real region. Students construct a number of stereonets step-by-step, and the map-scale ...
Understanding the Carbon Cycle: A Jigsaw Approach part of Cutting Edge:Climate Change:Activities
In this "jigsaw" exercise, each student is assigned one of five geochemical processes in the carbon cycle to research, fully understand, and then explain to others in groups of five. At the end of class ...
Lifelines and "Earth lines" part of Cutting Edge:Affective Domain:Activities
This activity can be used as a first lab for an introductory-level geoscience course. It is a cooperative ice-breaker gets students to know one another and opens discussion for geologic time and earth history.
Density, Buoyancy and Convection part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Activities
This 3-hour hands-on guided-discovery lab activity teaches students the concepts of density, buoyancy, thermal expansion and convection.
Earthquake Location part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
Earthquake location is an interesting and significant aspect of seismology. A number of methods that vary from simple to complex are available for learning about earthquake location. The methods also allow ...
