Activities (2)

Mapping a local Dune Field, and estimating paleowind speed and direction part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
We visit the Pinebush dune field in eastern New York State (20 minutes from campus). Students map one large parabolic dune, and collect sample of dune sand. In the lab, students map the dune field from aerial photographs and a DEM, measure the grain size distribution of their samples, and estimate paleo-wind speed and direction

Stream Terraces part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
Field work is surveying terraces along the Mohawk River and two of its tributary streams in eastern NY State. Lab write up requires students to present data graphically and to propose an hypothesis that explains the cause of episodic stream incision in the region.
