Beach Classification part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
This is an in-class activity that can be done in a relatively short time that requires the students to identify landforms and processes, and apply them in a geomorphic classification scheme. Can be used to discuss theoretical and applied topics and could have a quantitative component easily added by requiring students to calculate an omega value for the classification process.
Field Observations of Weathering and Mass Wasting part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
Students are asked to identify and document, using photographs and sketches, weathering processes and mass wasting in their local area and to explain their observations in a written technical report using their photographs and sketches as supporting evidence for their observations and descriptions.
GY 363: Geomorphology part of Cutting Edge:Course Design:Goals Database
