Measuring the Earth part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
With a colleague at the University of Kansas, we measure the size of the Earth using the method of Eratosthenese. This is handy because the UH and KU campuses are almost directly on a N-S line.


Physical Geology part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Courses
This is a survey of a broad spectrum of geology. We have majors in the class so there are certain things I think we need to cover but mostly I like to give a flavor of the big topics in geology and how a scientist thinks about problems.
