Hydraulic Geometry and Channel Roughness part of Geomorphology:Activities
In this field exercise, students measure channel cross sections in a rough (alluvial) and smooth bedrock-floored reach in a local stream. The students test the hypothesis that increasing roughness decreases average ...
Diagnosing Landslide Hazard part of Geomorphology:Activities
Students investigate an active complex landslide with the purpose of characterizing the risk to nearby infrastructure. Students gain experience with field observation, mapping, and report writing. In addition, ...
Glacial Evidence in the Andes Mountains, Peru part of Sedimentary Geology:Sedimentology, Geomorphology, and Paleontology 2014:Activities
This exercise brings the students to a landscape in the Peruvian Andes in Google Earth, where some alpine and niche glaciers still exist. Their task is to determine glacial extent in the past, and infer the kind of ...
Mapping Bedrock Outcrops with Stride & Compass and a GPS Unit in a soil and forest mantled landscape part of Geoscience in the Field:Activities
Students take a two mile hike along a trail in a forest and map bedrock exposures. The project takes place over a few days. Students will need 2-3 hours to collect the data in the field, and another 2-3 hours to ...
