Using Data to Teach Earth ProcessesAn Illustrated Community Discussion at the 2003 Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of America
Bob Ridky, US Geological Survey
Robert Ridky U.S. Geological Survey - This is one activity in a series of web-based modules that encourages introductory college students to use the abundant real-time and archived geoscience data available ...

Plate Tectonics as Expressed in Geological Landforms and Events
Jeff Ryan
This activity seeks to have students analyze global data sets on earthquake and volcano distributions toward identifying major plate boundary types in different regions on the Earth. A secondary objective is to familiarize students with two publicly available resources for viewing and manipulating geologically-relevant geospatial data: Google Earth(TM) and GeoMapApp.

Investigating Plate Tectonics with Google Earth
Beth Pratt-Sitaula, Central Washington University
Students examine data sets of topography, bathymetry, volcano location, earthquake location and size, and ocean floor age in Google Earth to determine the location and attributes of different types of plate ...

Exploring Evidence of Plate Tectonics Using GeoMapApp
Sean Cornell, Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania
This activity requires students to explore a range of datasets that help substantiate Plate Tectonic Theory. Students investigate plate tectonic environments (convergent, divergent, transform boundaries), topography/bathymetry of continents and ocean basins, the distribution and pattern of earthquakes, the distribution of volcanoes, as well as ages of the sea-floor, and more.

Uncovering Plate Tectonics
Richard Busse GFW Middle School; Fairfax, Minnesota
This activity is a guided investigation into the process of plate tectonics and resulting features. It's a look at the resulting effects which we see as volcanoes, earthquakes, and mountains.

A Geologic Safari of the East African Rift and the Newark Basin: Why these areas are more alike than you know
Margaret Benoit, College of New Jersey, The
This activity explores the similarity and differences between the Newark Rift Basin and East African Rift.

Earthquakes
Achim Herrmann, George Washington University
This activity uses geoinformatics to understand the world around us with an emphasis on earthquakes.

Hotspot Lesson: Relative Dating
Jamie A. Russell, Scripps Institution of Oceanography Related Links Hotspot Theory and Plate Velocities Mantle Plumes Samoan Hotspot Final Hotspot Project View Lesson Plan at ERESE ...
This lesson explains the application of relative dating for volcanic features in the ocean.

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 ...

Global Temperatures
Bob Mackay, Clark College
Students analyze the global temperature record from 1867 to the present. Long-term trends and shorter-term fluctuations are both evaluated. -
