Multiple temporal scales of landscapes and landforms part of Cutting Edge:Rates and Time:Teaching Activities
This exercise provides students with a timescale and list of geomorphic landforms and processes. The activity requires that students utilize their knowledge of process-driving mechanisms to place landforms and processes on a timescale. Students will encounter a wide variety of landforms and will learn how different processes occur on vastly different timescales.


North American Environments part of Cutting Edge:Rates and Time:Courses
Natural environments of North America (north of Mexico and excluding Florida) and critical environmental issues in the region will be examined in terms of geology/geomorphology, climate/weather, and biogeography (ecosystems, plants, and animals), emphasizing natural variation and anthropogenic alterations over various time scales. Multiple sources of information including scientific data, maps and charts, and artistic impressions will be utilized. This course is inquiry based and emphasizes active learning strategies.
