Tracking Tectonic Plates Using Two Independent Methods part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students use two independent methods to determine relative plate motions across a plate boundary. They find that plate tectonic theory generally holds up but also discover sophisticated detail (e.g. velocities ...

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology:Tectonics

Viewing geomorphic landforms with Google Earth part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
Geomorphic processes are not limited to the local or regional area around the University and most students have not been outside of the region. With today's technology we are able to see features on the ...

Structural Geometry from Outcrop Patterns part of Cutting Edge:Visualization:Examples
Using Google Earth, students will investigate the relationship between the geometry of rock bodies and their outcrop patterns.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology:Geomorphology, Structural Geology

In Search of GLOBE Data part of Cutting Edge:Visualization:Examples
Students use on-line GLOBE search tools to locate and display data from schools and use the data to answer questions regarding weather and climate. Answer key provided.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Meteorology:Measurements, Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Climatology :Regional climates, Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Meteorology:Seasonal patterns, Geography:Physical

Concept Test: Mid-Ocean Ridges part of Cutting Edge:Visualization:Examples
Single item multiple choice questions, based on mid-ocean ridge bathymetric data, suitable for using in the middle of a lecture to assess students' learning of basic plate tectonic concepts.
