How Does Surface Deformation at an Active Volcano Relate to Pressure and Volume Change in the Magma Chamber?
Module by Peter LaFemina, Penn State, State College, PA. This cover page by Ali Furmall, University of South Florida, now at University of Oregon.
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 a Debris Flow?
chuck connor, University of South Florida-St. Petersburg
SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to estimate the volume of volcanic deposits using map, thickness and high-water mark data from the 2005 Panabaj debris flow (Guatemala).
Mass Balance Model
Activity and Starting Point page by R.M. MacKay. Clark College, Physics and Meteorology.
Students are introduced to the concept of mass balance, flow rates, and equilibrium using an online interactive water bucket model. -
Using Learning Assistants to Support Peer Instruction with Classroom Response Systems ("Clickers")
Learning Assistants are used to facilitate student discussion in peer instruction during clicker questions (i.e., classroom response systems), by asking Socratic questions, emphasizing reasoning, and probing student thinking.
Modeling: (1) Revenue Neutral Carbon Taxes; (2) Accelerated atmospheric C02 concentrations
Martin Walter, University of Colorado at Boulder
Design a revenue neutral carbon tax and a plan for implementation; together with a model for what happens if we do not institute such a tax-system.
