Campus Field Soil Geomorphology part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
In this activity, students have an opportunity to learn about the geomorphology and soils of your campus. Within a team, students collect soils information and use it to construct of stratigraphic cross-section and outline major geologic events in the history of a given site.

Connecting Soils and Glacial Geology part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
This lab activity allows students to connect soil information to geologic processes/history.

Using Soil Survey Information for Geomorphic Analysis part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
In this activity students will use information from a county-level soil survey to learn about the geomorphology of an area.

Course

Geomorphology and Glacial Geology part of Cutting Edge:Course Design:Goals Database
This course covers the principles and analyses of processes that affect changes of the Earth's surface and govern the development of landforms. Topics include lecture and laboratory experiences in weathering and soil development, slope stability, stream hydraulics, wind action, groundwater and karst development, periglacial process, glacier erosion and transport, glacial sediments, and glacial landforms.
