Cool Cores Capture Climate Change
DATA: ANDRILL Sediment Core Data. TOOL: Paleontological Stratigraphic Interval Construction and Analysis Tool (PSICAT). SUMMARY: Create graphic models of sediment cores based on data provided by ANDRILL scientists to demonstrate evidence of climate change over Earth's Geologic Time.
Using NOAA NCDC Pollen Database to study vegetation history
Cathy Whitlock, Montana State University-Bozeman
This lab exercise uses SiteSeer, a public domain software available through NOAA/NCDC, to learn how to retrieve and query the NOAA NCDC pollen database. Students first work through a set of simple exercises that ...
Radiocarbon dating project
Mark Schmitz, Boise State University
This is an example of an activity used in a Quaternary Geochronology course, in which a small group of students (3-4) is tasked with transforming a set of activity measurements into radiocarbon ages and calibrated ...
Dendrochronology: Linking life and climate in the past
Kena Fox-Dobbs, University of Puget Sound
In this exercise students explore; 1) how climate variables influence tree growth on historical and/or geological timescales, and 2) how climatic records are generated from biogenic chronologies. The exercise ...
Geologic and Navajo Time Line
Margaret Mayer, Dine College
Students develop a time line using registrar tape and correlating marking off divisions of geologic eras. Above this they develop a Navajo time line of creation. Each week they focusing on the topic (era/period) of ...
Quaternary Paleoecology and Climate Change, Bladen County, NC
Martin Farley, University of North Carolina at Pembroke
Interpretation of Quaternary pollen record from Carolina Bay lakes in southeastern NC. This records goes back to the last interglacial and shows how much climate has changed vegetation even in this unglaciated ...
Timeline of the Early Earth
Selby Cull, Washington University in St. Louis
Students assemble timelines of the early evolution of Earth's atmosphere, lithosphere, biosphere, and hydrosphere by examining data from Archean rocks and minerals.
Cyclostratigraphy and astrochronology exercise
maya elrick, University of New Mexico-Main Campus
Simple classroom activity to highlight how cyclostratigraphy and concepts of astronchronology can be used to refine age control in sedimentary rocks, estimate rates of processes, and for time control and ...
JiTT - Exploring Geoarchaeology
Laura Guertin, Penn State Brandywine
1) How is climate connected to geoarchaeology? Explain. 2) List as many "tools" you can think of that would be useful to a geoarchaeologist and describe why it would be of use. 3) Is geoarchaeological ...
Kathryn Hoppe, Green River Community College
Students use the web to examine the biologic, geologic, atmospheric, and climatologically changes that occur with the evolution of land plants. This write up is a summary of web-based readings which the students ...
