Introducing Geophysics for Urban and Near-surface Applications

The IGUaNA project team are developing teaching materials for introductory-level undergraduate science courses. These materials feature the applications of geophysical techniques to societally-relevant, real-world problems. The project team brings deep expertise in geophysics content and pedagogy to the development of the curricular materials. Three of the four modules are now published on the teaching materials page. Each of the modules is peer-reviewed, tested in undergraduate classrooms, revised, and then shared via this website. These NSF-funded resources are available free of charge.

Teaching Materials

Each of the topical modules, designed to take 1-3 weeks of class time, is intended for introductory-level undergraduate courses and focuses on the applications of a single geophysical method to questions or problems that affect local communities. The following modules are now available:
