Using field trips to local rivers to enhance student understanding of depositional environments part of Cutting Edge:Sedimentary Geology:Activities
The purpose of this activity is to take advantage of modern rivers to teach basic principles in sedimentology and interpreting past deposits. The students first observe the sedimentological features of a modern river and use those observations to interpret the depositional environment of recent fluvial deposits from a near-by gravel pit.
