Demonstrations of Geophysical Principles Applicable to the Properties and Processes of the Earth's Interior

Jeffrey Barker, Binghamton University, Department of Geological Sciences

These demonstrations are designed to help students develop a conceptual understanding of geophysical principles. The concepts covered in these demonstrations include rheology, seismic waves, reflection, standing waves, velocity, earthquakes, Earth density, magnetic field, resonance, precession, the shadow zone, and Curie temperature. Each demonstration provides background information and a complete explanation of how to use and discuss the demo in class.
