Porosity and Permeability of Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action:Partners:Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum:Physical Volcanology:Examples
chuck connor
SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet for an iterative calculation to find volume of bubbles and hence porosity, permeability and gas escape as a function of depth.

Viscosity of the Mantle: Constraints from Post-glacial Rebound part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
David Kohlstedt, University of Minnesota
This laboratory experiment emphasizes the exponential nature of post-glacial rebound and reinforces the relationship between the rate of rebound and the viscosity of the mantle.

The Floating Lithosphere - Eureka! part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Len Vacher, Dept of Geology, University of South Florida
In this module, students examine Archimede's Principle in general and as it applies to Isostacy.

The Earth's Shells - Density vs. Depth part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Len Vacher, Dept of Geology, University of South Florida
In this module, students are asked to devise a way of graphically plotting the density variations with depth in the Earth.

Sun Spot Analysis part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with Data:Examples
Bob Mackay, Clark College; Mike Clark
Introductory students use Excel to graph monthly mean Greenwich sunspot numbers from 1749 to 2004 and perform a spectral analysis of the data using the free software program "Spectra". -

Shaking Ground - Linking Earthquake Magnitude and Intensity part of Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum:General Collection:Examples
Eric Baer, Highline Community College
An in-class activity for connecting earthquake magnitude, shaking, and intensity.

How Do We Estimate Melt Density? part of Pedagogy in Action:Partners:Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum:Physical Volcanology:Examples
chuck connor
SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build spreadsheets to estimate melt density at high temperatures and pressures from the thermodynamic properties of silicates.

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.

Atmospheric Vertical Structure and the First Law of Thermodynamics part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Anthony Hansen, St. 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.

Illustrating Hillslope Diffusion with Physical and Numerical Models part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Gregory Hancock, College of William and Mary
This problem illustrates how numerical theories are developed, how we might test this theory with an analog model, and how numerical models are constructed and the limitations of numerical modeling.
