Experiments with particle settling part of Cutting Edge: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.

Exploring sea level change in Google Earth part of Cutting Edge: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: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.

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.

Quantification of Critical Shear Stress part of Cutting Edge: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.
