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. -

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.

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.

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.

Earthquake Shaking and Damage part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Eric Baer, Highline Community College

This student homework and problem set has students quantitatively earthquake hazard, shaking and damage.

Modeling the interior of the Earth using Seismic Waves part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Eric Baer, Highline Community College

Students use a variety of tools to explore the interior of the Earth in this inquiry activity.

How Fast Do Materials Weather? part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Rebecca Teed, Wright State University-Main Campus

A think-pair-share activity in which students calculate weathering rates from tombstone weathering data. -

Two streams, two stories... How Humans Alter Floods and Streams part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Eric Baer, Highline Community College

An activity/lab where students determine the changes in 100-year flood determinations for 2 streams over time.

Earth's history in 4.56 meters: constructing a timeline with calculator tape part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Eric Baer, Highline Community College

An activity where students make a geologic timeline from calculator tape.
