Adopt a Blob part of Cutting Edge:Deep Earth:Activities
Blobs are everywhere in the deep Earth! Students will adopt a "blob" and develop the various associated observable anomalies for it (tomography, gravity, etc). There could also be a potential for students to adopt imaginary blobs that aren't physically real, but rather data artifacts. This assignment will help students in their own personal interpretation of deep Earth observables.
