Activities (4)

Concept puzzles about geophysical methods part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
These exercises can be used in class to insure students have a firm grasp on the concepts behind a variety of geophysical techniques and can take anywhere between 10-45 minutes.

Izmit Earthquake part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
This lab allows students to analyze earthquake seismicity from the North Anatolian fault using a variety of methods.

Skill puzzles part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
These are short exercises that allow students practice with concepts in Structural Geology, Tectonics, or Geophysics. (Many of them were designed with Eric Horsman.) The basic idea is to give students opportunities for frequent practice with difficult concepts, many of which require spatial visualization skills. These activities nearly always fit on a half-sheet of paper, and include a visual and verbal component. Instructors may use them for formative assessment or as group activities in class.

Photo observation & interpretation part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Each week in Structural Geology, I assign students the task of sketching, describing, and interpreting an image. The images are chosen to match the relevant course material for that week. There is a specific form for this assignment, which is designed in part to physically separate their observations from interpretations on the page. In class, we spend 10-20 minutes discussing their different observations/interpretations.

Focal mechanism sphere part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
This see-through sphere helps students visualize how slip on a fault relates to the focal mechanism representation of the same deformation.

Acquisition of Data Sets for Gravity Inversion Laboratories part of CISMI:For Carleton Faculty:Curriculum Development Projects
We collected gravity data across two canyon-spanning bridges in the southwest, USA. These data were analyzed and modeled by students in Geophysics.
