Hands-on Activities for understanding Ammonite Sutures
Clint Cowan, Carleton College
This lab/project/topic starts with a hands-on activity that can be accomplished in one to two hours, depending on how you do it. It is designed to make students demonstrate they know (really) what sutures are in ...
The Quaternary Glacio-Fluvial History of the Upper Midwest Using Anaglyph Stereo Maps
Kate Pound, Saint Cloud State University
Students examine the anaglyph stereo map (with red/cyan glasses) and use textures to generate a surficial geology map of the Upper Midwest. They can then interpret the textures in terms of landforms, geomorphic ...
