Who Polluted Surface and Groundwater in This Place? part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students use water-well data and geology to determine which site caused groundwater and surface-water contamination.

Identifying Plate Tectonic Boundaries for a Virtual Ocean Basin part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students observe an ocean basin and two continental margins to identify possible plate boundaries and predict where earthquakes and volcanoes would occur. They also draw the boundaries in cross section.
Think-Aloud Modeling of Geologic Reasoning in the Field part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching the Methods of Geoscience:Activities
In a field class, the instructor shares all thoughts with students as the group examines outcrops, roadcuts, or geologic traverses. Such thoughts include observations, possible interpretations, what additional information is needed, potential strategies for approaching problems that arise, doubts about what is knowable and what is not, and anything else that comes to the instructors mind.
Advanced Field Geology part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching the Methods of Geoscience:Course
This is a field-based course, taught during four weekends, spread out over the semester. Each trip generally visits a different locality in order to expose students to diverse types of geology, everything from studying Precambrian shear zones to Quaternary landscape evolution.
Introduction to Geology part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Courses
This course provides an introduction to geology, emphasizing geologic processes and concepts, investigating geologic questions, and observation of landscapes.
