Investigation: When will there no longer be glaciers in Glacier National Park? part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

An Investigation Question activity developed by Carol Ormand, Wittenberg University.

Students use historical data on the extent of the Grinnell Glacier in Glacier National Park to estimate when the glacier will melt completely.

Flood Frequency and Risk Assessment part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Carol Ormand, Carleton College

Students calculate recurrence intervals for various degrees of flooding based on historical data. Students then do a risk assessment for the surrounding community.

Global Phosphorus Cycle part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Kirsten Menking, Vassar College

Students create and modify a STELLA model of the global phosphorus cycle to test a number of scenarios.

Radioactive Decay and Geochronology part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Kirsten Menking, Vassar College

Students create a STELLA model of the radioactive decay process.
