Ocean Circulation part of Cutting Edge:Courses: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
This lab will give students practice plotting Mohr circles, interpreting experimental data for creating new fractures and pre-existing cracks, and how pore-pressure and earthquakes affect materials.
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.
Teaching from multiple perspectives part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Essays

The degradation of glacial deposits in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica part of Vignettes:Vignette Collection
Surface deposits such as glacial moraines and tills can yield significant information about the timing, extent, and rate of environmental change on Earth. In order to correctly interpret the record of past ...
Slow erosion without creep in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica part of Vignettes:Vignette Collection
Quantifying erosion rates is central to understanding how landscapes evolve through time and for discerning the links between landforms and the processes that shape them. The alpine valleys of the McMurdo Dry ...
