How Do We Estimate Magma Viscosity? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to examine how magma viscosity varies with temperature, fraction of crystals, and water content using the non-Arrhenian VFT model.

Bubbles in Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet and apply the ideal gas law to model the velocity of a bubble rising in a viscous magma.

How Does Surface Deformation at an Active Volcano Relate to Pressure and Volume Change in the Magma Chamber? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to examine and apply the Mogi model for horizontal and vertical surface displacement vs. depth and pressure conditions in the magma chamber.

What is the Volume of the 1992 Eruption of Cerro Negro Volcano, Nicaragua? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to calculate the volume a tephra deposit using an exponential-thinning model.

What is the Relationship between Lava Flow Length and Effusion Rate at Mt Etna? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students use Excel to determine a log-log relationship for flow length vs effusion rate and compare it with a theoretical expression for the maximum flow length.

Porosity and Permeability of Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet for an iterative calculation to find volume of bubbles and hence porosity, permeability and gas escape as a function of depth.

Mined-Over Matter: Remembering Copper Mining at Keweenaw National Historic Park, Upper Peninsula Michigan part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum/Geology of National Parks module. Students calculate the amount of rock removed and the value of copper produced at the great Keweenaw District up to 1925.

How Do We Estimate Melt Density? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build spreadsheets to estimate melt density at high temperatures and pressures from the thermodynamic properties of silicates.

Mapping Coastal Vulnerability to Sea-Level Rise at Point Reyes National Seashore part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum/Geology of National Parks module. Students work with a color-coded conditional-formatted spreadsheet map to work through a USGS report applying a coastal vulnerability index.

Flood Days and Good Canoeing Days at Congaree National Park part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Geology of National Parks module/Geology of National Parks course. Students calculate probabilities using USGS hydrograph data, a spreadsheet of daily stage heights, and the COUNTIF function.

How are Flow Conditions in Volcanic Conduits Estimated? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to calculate velocity of rising magma in steady-state Plinian eruptions using conservation of mass and momentum.

Shaking Ground - Linking Earthquake Magnitude and Intensity part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

An in-class activity for connecting earthquake magnitude, shaking, and intensity.

Frequency of Large Earthquakes -- Introducing Some Elementary Statistical Descriptors part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module. Students examine the number of large earthquakes (magnitude 7 and above) per year for 1970-1999 and 1940-1999. QL: descriptors of a frequency distribution.

Lithospheric Density part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Students learn about the weighted mean by building spreadsheets that apply this concept to the average density of the oceanic lithosphere.

Deciviews from Look Rock, Great Smoky Mountains National Park: How Hazy is it? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum/Geology of National Parks module. Students calculate the haze index and standard visual range from concentrations of particulate matter.
