Evaluating the Effects of Local Energy Resource Development part of Cutting Edge:Topics:Energy:Energy Activities
This is a semester-long, jigsaw project for a class of 20 to 25 students that has students work in teams to explore the effects of energy resource development on local water resources, economics and society.
Quantifying Groundwater Baseflow and Improving Math Skills through a Stream-Discharge Exercise part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Hydrogeology:Activities
A two-part exercise is presented where students quantify stream discharge and use the data to determine groundwater baseflow. They first use tedious hand calculations to compute discharge; then develop their own ...
Pathogenic Microorganisms in Water part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Hydrogeology:Activities
This activity introduces students to sampling and testing for microorganisms in different water sources. It also tests iodine tablets to kill coliform bacteria which interest many students. The activity utilizes ...
Dye Trace Experiment using part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Hydrogeology:Activities
This exercise allows students monitor a dye plume in a stream using digital images collected by "remote aerial tramway".
Mapping extensional crack arrays in asphalt as normal fault system physical analogues part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Structural Geology:Activities
Students map extensional crack arrays in asphalt, at full-scale, using long pieces of inexpensive craft paper and markers, map the connections between individual cracks in the arrays, and study (descriptively) ...
Take A Hike Assignment part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students are assigned to take a hike in a location of their choice and write a concise summary of their observations of Earth Science features and processes. This assignment is used near the end of an Earth Systems ...
Monument Creek hydraulics project part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Geomorphology:Activities
This is a several-part field and computer-based project that involves students in measurement of stream-channel geometry, basic stream-hydraulics calculations, and flood-frequency analysis. Its primary strengths ...
Physical Geology: Idaho Field Trip part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities
Optional field trip to local sites of geologic interest/relevance.
Measuring bankfull channel features, bed sediment, and bed load part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Geomorphology:Activities
The students gain field experience measuring bankfull channel characteristics in an urban park, and apply their measurements to determine whether the channel is 'adjusted' to its incoming flow regime and ...
Drainage Basins Field Lab part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Geomorphology:Activities
This field activity and follow-up assignment explores the geomorphology of drainage basins in an active tectonic setting. It introduces basic concepts of drainage basin structure and landscape analysis using ...
