Investigating Earthquakes: GIS Mapping and Analysis (College Level) part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with GIS:Examples

Brian Welch, Saint Olaf College

This is a college-level adaptation of a chapter from the Earth Exploration Toolbook. The students download global quake data over a time range and use GIS to interpret the tectonic context. -

Grocery Store Survey of Aquaculture Products part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Oceanography:Activities

Susan Richardson, Florida Atlantic University

Students work in pairs to survey seafood items sold in local grocery stores or fish markets, recording whether items are farm-raised or wild caught, fresh, frozen or preserved, as well as country of origin. ...

A basic trilobite morphometric exercise part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Paleontology:Activities

John Taylor, Indiana University of Pennsylvania-Main Campus

A lab exercise and follow-up classroom activity in which students measure some trilobite specimens, evaluate the statistical significance of differences documented in data acquired for two different populations, ...

Atmospheric Vertical Structure and the First Law of Thermodynamics part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Anthony Hansen, Saint Cloud State University

This set of homework problems is intended to help students begin to discover the importance and utility of conservation principles derived from the First Law of Thermodynamics and provide a first step in evolving from the p-V diagrams the students have seen in their physics coursework toward the thermodynamic diagrams used in meteorology.

Using a Mass Balance Model to Understand Carbon Dioxide and its Connection to Global Warming part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Bob Mackay, Clark College

Students explore the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide over the past 40 years with an interactive on-line model.

Kohler Curves part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Swarndeep Gill, California University of Pennsylvania

An assignment teaching students about Kohler curves that enhances their quantitative skills.

Mid-level spreadsheeting and complex modeling of real-world scarp evolution part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

William Locke, Montana State University-Bozeman

This exercise is a second or familiarization exercise in spreadsheeting, but is also a mathematical model for slope evolution. It uses the concept of "erosivity" (generally, the relative ratio of driving and resisting forces) and slope angle to reshape an initial topography. Finally, it asks the students themselves to come up with a real-world situation worth modeling.

An Assessment of Hillslope Stability Using the Factor of Safety part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Laura Moore, Oberlin College

In this homework assignment students are asked to consider the balance of forces on a hill slope using the Factor of Safety.

From Ocean Topography to Flexural Rigidity part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:MARGINS Mini-Lessons

Andrew Newman, Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus

Students will use the available bathymetric datasets to test the utility of a flexural rigidity model of oceanic crust.

Measuring Dinosaur Speed from Trackways part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Paleontology:Activities

Bret Bennington, Hofstra University

This activity demonstrates how measurements taken from fossil trackways can be used to estimate the speed at which extinct animals were moving when they made the trackways, providing students the opportunity to ...
