Long-Term Sedimentology Projects Using Local Geological and Environmental Problems part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
Project-based exercises engage students in all aspects of the scientific inquiry, reinforce previously learned concepts and information and provide longer periods of time for students to analyze and synthesize data. In this session we shall examine examples of long-term student projects and discuss the advantages and pitfalls of this approach for sedimentology courses. The benefits of a longer integrated lecture-laboratory format over traditional course formats for teaching sedimentology and other upper-division geology courses will also be discussed.
Watershed Delineation and Geomorphic Characterization part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
This exercise was designed for an integrated laboratory course "Applied Environmental Geology". It is the first in a series of lab projects designed to apply hydrogeological principles and methods to study the failure of a hydroelectric dam built ca. 1910-15.
Process Geomorphology part of Cutting Edge:Course Design:Goals Database
Geomorphic Processes is a fundamental Its subject matter analyzes Earth systems and their responses to change and demonstrates how surface deposits, landforms and landscapes can be used to interpret Earth history. Geomorphic processes create the physical infrastructure or habitat templates for ecosystems and thus are also integral, although often undervalued, part of ecosystem research.
