Red rock and concretion models from Earth to Mars: Teaching diagenesis part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
This activity teaches students concepts of terrestrial diagenesis (cementation, fluid flow, porosity and permeability, concretions) and encourages them to apply those concepts to new or unknown settings, including extraterrestrial examples (e.g., Mars, which is often a big "wow" factor).
