Role of Sedimentation in Rifting part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
A module in which students use field and geophysical measurements and observations of Gulf of California basins to calculate isostasy and its controls.

Exploring Styles of Extension in the Gulf of California part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
An introduction to processes associated with continental rifting, and resulting fault geometries and distributions, and lithospheric responses, using seismic data examples from the Gulf of California.

Role of Plate Motion Obliquity in Rifting part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
A module that uses Euler poles to describe the relative motion between the Baja Microplate and North American Plate, highlighting how the obliquity of rifting changes along strike in the Gulf of California.

Bathymetry of Rifted Margins part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This is one component of the Rupturing Continental Lithosphere suite of mini-lessons. Students investigate the morphology of rifted margins by creating topographic/bathymetric maps and profiles across the Red Sea ...

Describing three-dimensional structures with spherical and Cartesian coordinates part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Analyzing three-dimensional orientation data using a stereonet is an important component of any structural geology course, ideally helping students to visualize structural geometry and serving as a springboard for ...

Exploring fold and thrust belts in Google Earth part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Google Earth enhances traditional geologic maps by allowing the viewer to explore three-dimensional map patterns and the interaction between structure and topography in dictating those map patterns. This activity ...

Overview: Rupturing Continental Lithosphere Mini-Lesson Sequence part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
An examination of two contrasting rifted margins: the Red Sea and Gulf of California, leading to identification of similarities and differences associated with rifting and lithospheric rupture in each setting.
