Natural Hazards Term Project
Michael Phillips, Illinois Valley Community College
Students apply the concepts learned in the class by preparing two (2) term projects discussing two natural hazards and how they impact the area where the student lives (or an area the student might like to live ...

Exploring Earthquake Hazards with GIS
Constantin Cranganu, CUNY Brooklyn College
This activity is a straightforward application of GIS to assessment of earthquake hazards. The students get more modeling skills with GIS and a better understanding of earthquake hazards.

Unit 1: Hazards, vulnerability and risk
Brittany Brand, Boise State University; Pamela McMullin-Messier, Central Washington University; Melissa Schlegel, College of Western Idaho
Students will identify and apply credible geologic and social science data sets to identify local hazards and vulnerable groups and structures, and assess risk for their community.

Unit 1 Hazards at Transform Plate Boundaries
Laurel Goodell, Princeton University; Peter Selkin, University of Washington, Tacoma; Rachel Teasdale, California State University-Chico
This unit uses scientific data to quantify the geologic hazard that earthquakes represent along transform plate boundaries. Students will document the characteristics of the Pacific/North American plate boundary in ...

Unit 3 Hazards at Divergent Plate Boundaries
Rachel Teasdale, California State University-Chico; Laurel Goodell, Princeton University; Peter Selkin, University of Washington, Tacoma
Students work in small groups to examine data and videos of earthquakes, submarine volcanic eruptions, and black smokers at submarine divergent plate boundaries, and then predict similar processes at subaerial ...

Paper: "Limitations and Hazards to Home Construction"
Rich Whittecar, Old Dominion University
This is a semester-long writing project that incorporates exercises completed during first two thirds of the term. Students evaluate geomorphic conditions and potential hazards on one of four properties in western ...

Viscosity experiments: physical controls and implications for volcanic hazards
Ben Edwards, Dickinson College
This activity is a laboratory-style exercise that involves investigating the physical controls on viscosity by pouring different syrup mixtures down an inclined plane and using Jeffreys equation to calculate ...

Downloading Earthquake Data from the USGS Earthquake Hazards Site for Anywhere in the World and Studying it Using ArcGIS
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Students download earthquake data from the USGS Earthquake Hazards website and plot and anlyze the earthquakes using ArcMap and ArcScene.

Unit 2: Perception of hazards, vulnerability and risk
Brittany Brand, Boise State University; Pamela McMullin-Messier, Central Washington University; Melissa Schlegel, College of Western Idaho
Students will collect and analyze relevant social data on individual and community knowledge, risk perception and preparedness within their local social networks.

Asbestos: Mineralogy, Health Hazards, and Public Policy
Helen Lang, West Virginia University
In this laboratory exercise students will have an opportunity to examine the crystal structures, optical properties and health hazards of the common asbestos minerals. The laboratory will reinforce optical ...
