Snow Pit Stratigraphy part of Cutting Edge:Geoscience in the Field:Activities
This is the first exercise in a course titled Snow Dynamics and Accumulation. It asks student groups to describe snow pits and the variability in those snow pits in space. It can be used to understand the temporal ...

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Hydrology:Snow Dynamics/Avalanche Science, Snowpack and Snow Melt

Studying Aquifers in Outcrop part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Field Labs:Field Lab Examples
Students describe the hydrogeologic properties of different sedimentary and volcanic rocks. -

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology:Sedimentary Geology, Geoscience:Hydrology:Ground Water:Geology of groundwater occurrence

Groundwater Pump Test part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Field Labs:Field Lab Examples
Students run a pump test and interpret the results as drawdown curves and hydraulic conductivity measurements. -

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology, Hydrology:Ground Water:Aquifer properties

Comparing Rain-Gauge Data with Radar-Derived Precipitation Estimates part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Field Labs:Field Lab Examples
Student teams collect rain-gauge data and compared it with radar-derived precipitation estimates. They use GIS to analyze discrepancies between the two datasets. -
