Activities (3)

Estimating GPS Positional Error part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
Very simply and directly determine the x, y, z accuracy of the various GPS receivers using a simple method that doesn't use a lot of quantitative statistics and yields a gut-level sense of the accuracy of different systems.

Estimating Valley Fill Thickness with a Gravity Survey part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
We will make a gravity traverse of the Goldstream valley to determine the thickness of the valley fill. The exercise will take ~ 4hrs, working in two teams all students will get to function in each of the survey roles.

The gravitational attractive force of the English Dept. part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
By measuring the gravitational force in the basement and on the roof of the Gruening Bldg. students will determine the gravitational attraction of the building and its contents and estimate the mass of the building.
