Isostasy and crustal thickness part of Teaching Computation with MATLAB:Teaching with MATLAB 2015:Teaching Activities
Students will write a matlab code to calculate crustal thickness of 5 locations. Calculations will use topography (determined by running a matlab script that creates a clickable map) and nominal density values, and ...
Slip Rates on young faults part of Structural Geology and Tectonics:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Students use measured ages and offset of quaternary surfaces to determine vertical slip rates of a young fault. Students then must determine if vertical slip rates have varied significantly through time.
Estimating the spreading rate of Atlantic and Pacific ridges part of Structural Geology and Tectonics:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Given maps of bathymetry of Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, students estimate spreading rate of each ridge writing a matlab script that plots a line of bathymetry, and calculated bathymetry as a function of spreading ...
