Testing the Fixed-hotspot-moving-plate model part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students examine hot spot tracks, magnetic inclination data, and coral data from the Hawaii-Emperor Seamount Chain to test the hypothesis that hotspots are fixed. Most students have learned somewhere that hotspots are fixed, period. These data give them an opportunity to challenge that hypothesis.

Earth and the Solar System part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Courses
This is high enrollment science course for non-science students in which we examine the evidence for how geological, biological, atmospheric, oceanic, and climatic processes work and interact here on Earth. We then attempt to apply those processes to other planets in our solar system. The course structure includes pre-class student preparation and in-class small group activities to require students to engage with the material regularly throughout the term.
