Ocean Circulation part of Cutting Edge:Oceanography:Activities
Laboratory exercise to explore water density, surface ocean currents, and ocean circulation
Mohr Circles part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
In this lab, students will practice making and interpreting Mohr circles for given stress states. Students have been introduced to the concept of Mohr circles in lecture and have derived these equations through a force-balance setup. The lab is a mixture of plotting these circles and interpreting experimental data.
Oceanography Laboratory part of Cutting Edge:Oceanography:Courses
Laboratory section for an introductory level oceanography course.
Structural Geology part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Courses
This course addresses many topics about how rocks break and deform, for which I try to emphasize applications to earthquakes, hydraulic fracturing, hydrocarbon extraction, and landscape evolution.
