Experiments with particle settling part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Sedimentary Geology:Sedimentology, Geomorphology, and Paleontology 2014:Activities
In this activity, students experiment with the effects of Reynolds numbers (viscosity), particle shape, and particle concentration (flocculation) on settling velocity.

On the Cutting Edge Exemplary Collection This activity is part of the On the Cutting Edge Exemplary Teaching Activities collection.

Sediments and the Global Carbon Cycle part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
This is a series of exercises designed to introduce undergraduate students to the role of sediments and sedimentary rocks in the global carbon cycle and the use of stable carbon isotopes to reconstruct ancient ...

Sediments and carbon burial on the continental margins part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This lesson explores factors that control the character and fate of carbon delivered by rivers from the continents to the oceans, using mapped characteristics and data from 12 different rivers, including the MARGINS Waipaoa and Fly systems.

From Source to Sink: How Sediment Reflects the Journey from the Mountains to the Sea part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This is one component of the Source to Sink Mini Lesson Set Continental margins are phenomenal places to study the modern sedimentary cycle because sediment in margin regions has been routed from mountains ...

Sediment Dispersal and Continental Margin Stratigraphy part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This module examines different sediment dispersal systems and their relationships and controls on margin stratigraphy and geometry, using data sets from the Fly and Waipaoa river systems.

Holocene Optimum: A time of massively increased sediment discharge for Asian Rivers part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This is one component of the Source to Sink Mini Lesson Set This module is part of a larger set of mini-lessons that explores the variations in water and particulate mass flux from rivers that result from changing ...

Exploring sea level change in Google Earth part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Sedimentary Geology:Sedimentology, Geomorphology, and Paleontology 2014:Activities
This is a short activity that uses Google Earth to explore sea-level change as measured by tidal gauges around the world

Exploring Barrier Islands in Google Earth part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Sedimentary Geology:Sedimentology, Geomorphology, and Paleontology 2014:Activities
This is an exploration in Google Earth of the links between barrier island morphology and wave and tidal energy.

Quantification of Critical Shear Stress part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Sedimentary Geology:Sedimentology, Geomorphology, and Paleontology 2014:Activities
This is a lab activity designed to give students experience with the concept and quantification of critical shear stress.

Sediment production and distribution across the margins part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:MARGINS Mini-Lessons
This activity is an exploration of the relationship among tectonics, sediment production, and sediment dispersal from watersheds to the continental margins. Students will examine data on a suite of watersheds and make measurements and observations in Google Earth or GeoMapApp.

S2S Introduction: The Source-to-Sink Mini-Lesson Series part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This module focuses on characterizing different river systems to better understand where sediment comes from and the variables that control sediment supply to continental margins in different tectonic settings.
