Anthropogenic Effects on Erosion part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
This exercise investigates anthropogenic effects on erosion in two parts. The first is a discussion of a paper by Roger Hooke (2000) "On the history of humans as geomorphic agents." The second half expands on the concept of back of the envelope calculations to calculate volumes and costs of various human earth-moving activities.

Fluvial Landforms on Maps part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
This is an in-class exercise designed to A) give students more practice reading topographic maps, B) have students identify fluvial landforms on maps, and C) get students thinking about the processes that formed the features they see on maps. The exercise has three stations where students identify fluvial features and answer questions about chronology, climatic influences, etc. Then we move away from the "classic" maps to local topographic maps and students have to find several of the same fluvial features and describe them to the class.
