Introducing Geophysics for Urban and Near-surface Applications

Private team workspace

The IGUaNA project team is in the process of developing teaching materials for introductory-level undergraduate geophysics courses. These materials will 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 project materials. Each of the course modules will be peer-reviewed, tested in undergraduate classrooms, revised, and then shared via this website. These NSF-funded resources will be available free of charge.

Teaching Materials

We are developing four topical modules, each designed to take 1-3 weeks of class time. Each of the first three modules 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.
