Summary

MARGINS SEIZE initiative logo

Three video podcasts were produced with PowerPoint presentations associated with the SEIZE initiative of the NSF-MARGINS program. In particular, the video podcasts, highlight three of the invited presentations at the "The Next Decade of the Seismogenic Zone Experiment Workshop," held in September 2008. The podcasts can used by students and faculty in geoscience courses such as tectonics, geophysics, marine geology and oceanography.

The following presentations from the workshop are available:

1. Slow slip - An ubiquitous yet poorly understood mode of strain release - S. Schwartz (UC Santa Cruz)

2. World's thickest seismogenic fault rock from a subduction complex, Kodiak Islands, Alaska - J.C. Moore (UC Santa Cruz)

3. NanTroSEIZE: The IODP Nankai Trough Seismogenic Zone Experiment by H. Tobin (Univ. of Wisconsin) - forthcoming

This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 0633234

Learning Goals

The goals of these materials are to: (1) bring contemporary results of the NSF-MARGINS into the undergraduate classrooms and (2) show students the breadth of collaborative research in the SEIZE - Seismogenic Zone Experiment initiative.

Context for Use

The podcasts are approximately 20 minutes-long and can be used as a component of a lecture class, as a homework assignment, or the basis for a classroom or electronic discussion.

Description and Teaching Materials

20 minute-long podcasts of presentations by three of the invited presentations at the "The Next Decade of the Seismogenic Zone Experiment Workshop," held in September 2008, modified for use in undergraduate course such as tectonics, structural geology, marine geology, and geophysics.

Teaching Notes and Tips

Podcasts can used to bring most recent research into the classroom to stimulate student discussion.

Assessment

The quality of student discussion and any follow-up assignments can be used to assessment quality of podcasts.
