Porosity and Permeability of Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action:Partners:Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum:Physical Volcanology:Examples

chuck connor, University of South Florida-St. Petersburg

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet for an iterative calculation to find volume of bubbles and hence porosity, permeability and gas escape as a function of depth.

What is the Volume of the 1992 Eruption of Cerro Negro Volcano, Nicaragua? part of Pedagogy in Action:Partners:Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum:Physical Volcanology:Examples

chuck connor, University of South Florida-St. Petersburg

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to calculate the volume a tephra deposit using an exponential-thinning model.

What is the Relationship between Lava Flow Length and Effusion Rate at Mt Etna? part of Pedagogy in Action:Partners:Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum:Physical Volcanology:Examples

chuck connor, University of South Florida-St. Petersburg

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students use Excel to determine a log-log relationship for flow length vs effusion rate and compare it with a theoretical expression for the maximum flow length.

How Do We Estimate Magma Viscosity? part of Pedagogy in Action:Partners:Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum:Physical Volcanology:Examples

chuck connor, University of South Florida-St. Petersburg

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to examine how magma viscosity varies with temperature, fraction of crystals, and water content using the non-Arrhenian VFT model.

Bubbles in Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action:Partners:Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum:Physical Volcanology:Examples

Module by Chuck Connor, University of South Florida, Tampa. This cover page by Ali Furmall, USF, now at U. Oregon.

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet and apply the ideal gas law to model the velocity of a bubble rising in a viscous magma.

Northwest Passage part of Cutting Edge:Enhance Your Teaching:Teaching Methods:Teaching with Google Earth:Examples

Glenn Richard, SUNY at Stony Brook

An investigation of changes in polar regions using Google Earth.

When is Dinner Served? Predicting the Spring Phytoplankton Bloom in the Gulf of Maine (College Level) part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with GIS:Examples

Brian Welch

College-level adaptation of the Earth Exploration Toolbook chapter. Students explore the critical role phytoplankton play in the marine food web. -

Density of the Earth - How to Solve It part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Len Vacher, Dept of Geology, University of South Florida

This module addresses the real problem of determining the density of the Earth and invites the student to figure out how to solve the problem.

The Floating Lithosphere - Isostasy part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Len Vacher, Dept of Geology, University of South Florida

Students are asked to numerically and then analytically determine the relations governing the depth of compensation.

Question of the Day: ANWR Drilling Policy part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Question of the Day developed by William Prothero, University of California, Santa Barbara.

Students analyze the interplay between science and politics on the issue of drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
