Connecting Cross-Sectional Data from the Red Sea to Plate Tectonics
Students will use map views and cross-sectional profiles across the Red Sea to determine plate tectonic processes in the region. Google Earth is a technological tool used to facilitate the investigation.

Margin Morphology: Does Form Follow Function?
Students will use GeoMapApp to investigate variations in the geomorphology of continental margins both Passive and Active at various sites of the North American and South American continents. They will ...

Source to Sink Morphology, Sedimentation, and Anthropogenic Impact: Hudson System, New York
Familiarize students with the morphology of passive continental margins and their associated shelf valleys, submarine canyons and estuaries, and assess the anthropogenic impact.

Burial, compaction, and porosities in a subduction zone
In this activity, students look at how sediments compact as they are buried in a subduction zone and explore how rapid burial can lead to increased water pressure.

News Flash: MARGINS Discovery Student Presentations
Students describe MARGINS research results in a two to four minute oral class presentation. The assignment is appropriate for any class that covers topics related continental margins.

Sediment production and distribution across the margins
This activity is an exploration of the relationship among tectonics, sediment production, and sediment dispersal from watersheds to the continental margins. Students will examine data on a suite of watersheds and make measurements and observations in Google Earth or GeoMapApp.

What Can (and Cannot) Be Learned from Scientific Drilling Using Examples from Margins Initiatives
This is a lecture segment that could be introduced to an introductory geoscience class to help explain and demonstrate what can and cannot be found out by scientific drilling.

NanTroSEIZE in 3-D
NanTroSEIZE 3-D is a online virtual voyage based on a seismic survey to study the plate boundary and seismogenic zone off Japan. The virtual voyage comes in two versions, one for use in lower division general education geoscience courses and the other in upper division geology courses in tectonics, marine geology and geophysics.

The Next Decade of The Seismogenic Zone Experiment - Video Presentation Podcasts
Video podcasts of presentations from The Next Decade of the Seismogenic Zone Experiment Workshop

Using geochemical proxies to trace sediment sources
This lecture segments can be used in a mid- to upper-level course to introduce geochemical proxies commonly applied to weathering and sedimentation.
