Introduction to MATLAB for Geomorphology part of Teaching Activities
Risa Madoff, University of North Dakota-Main Campus
This is a lab for a Geomorphology course intended to introduce students to modeling landform evolution by means of applying a common sediment transport law to the erosion of a hillslope over time. MATLAB is used to ...

Working with Scientific Data Sets in Matlab: An Exploration of Ocean Color and Sea Surface Temperature part of Teaching Activities
Andrew Fischer, university of tasmania
Remote sensing is a cost-effective way to gather data about environmental conditions and can be used to understand variability and trends. In this exercise will start to gather environmental data for the Tasman ...

Visualizing outcrop patterns from strike/dip data using MATLAB part of Teaching Activities
Charly Bank, University of Toronto
This lab activity allows students in an introductory structural geology class to explore strike-dip outcrop patterns on a map and in 3D. The topography is shown as a contour map; students decide on values for ...

Working with Scientific Data Sets in Matlab: Intra-annual variability of Sea Surface Temperature and Data Interpolation part of Teaching Activities
Andrew Fischer, university of tasmania
Sea surface temperature is a critical variable that determines biogeographic and distribution patterns of marine organisms. Changes in temperature influence species reproduction and survival and can affect the ...

Explore CTD data of vertical structure of ocean part of Teaching Activities
Alexander Stine, San Francisco State University
Students use MATLAB to explore CTD data of vertical structure of ocean.

Subject: Geology: Geoscience:Geology

Using Univariate Statistics to Understand Regional Drainage Patterns part of Teaching Activities
Peter Adams, University of Florida
In this activity, students use MATLAB to compare two data sets of organic matter content in order to provide quantitative evidence that tests the null hypothesis that sediment samples have the same fluvial source. ...

Volume of oceans, and sea-level variations part of Teaching Activities
Charly Bank, University of Toronto
The activity combines aspects of Earth science (volume of oceans and ice sheets) with calculus (area of a 1x1 degree tile) and Matlab programming. Students calculate the volume of oceans and of ice sheets given the ...

Tracking Groundwater Pollution part of Teaching Activities
Victor Padron, Normandale Community College
This is a teaching module presenting an introduction to modeling ground water pollution, directed to undergraduate students in applied mathematics. It begins with a brief discussion of Darcy's law concerning ...

Subject: Geology: Geoscience:Geology

Using Autocorrelation and Cross-correlation to Explore Links Between River Discharge and Regional Climate part of Teaching Activities
Peter Adams, University of Florida
Students conduct autocorrelation and cross-correlation analyses on river discharge and climate indices to test the hypothesis that coastal streams draining mountainous terrain are strong indicators of climatic ...

Thermal Evolution of the Oceanic Lithosphere part of Teaching Activities
Mark Behn, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
The goal of this problem set is to evaluate the thermal evolution of the oceanic lithosphere. As discussed in class, temperature in the oceanic upper mantle is well described by a half-space cooling model, in which ...
