Here we see it, but what's beneath? Effective geologic cross-section problem solving part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Rob Benson, Adams State College

Students will use suface observations from a map to locate subsurface features using geologic cross-sections using topographic profiles, surface data, assessment of variables and data quality. Students will produce a standard scientific report describing the nature and conclusions of the project.
