Introduction to Plate Tectonics part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
Uses maps created in Google Earth to explore concepts of plate tectonics including locations of plate boundaries, age of the sea floor, and distribution of earthquakes
Shallow Subsurface Imaging part of Cutting Edge:Course Design:Goals Database
This course covers techniques of geophysical investigation of the shallow subsurface as they apply to solving groundwater, environmental, archaeological, and engineering problems. Emphasizes methods, survey design, and interpretation with focus on case studies. Laboratory consists of both field training and computer exercises using geographic information systems for analysis of spatial data.
