Earthquake Investigation Workshop: Shake, Rattle, & Rock
Daniel Murray, University of Rhode Island
This 2.5 day workshop investigates provides MS & HS teachers with information about plate tectonics and earthquakes. It is geared to standards and Grade Span Expectations in Rhode Island. Over the next five ...

Solid Earth Geophysics
Laura Wetzel, Eckerd College
An introduction to the quantitative analysis of Earth structure and plate tectonics using earthquake seismology, seismic reflection and refraction, gravity, magnetics, and heat flow.

Structural Geology and Tectonics
Barb Tewksbury, Hamilton College
Rather than taking students through the topics of structural geology in textbook table-of-contents order, this course is framed around having students apply concepts and methods of structural geology and tectonics ...

Earthquakes and Volcanoes
Ignacio Pujana, The University of Texas at Dallas
This is an interdisciplinary science course offered in an online format. A flexible approach based on programmed self-instruction, with frequent tests to monitor progress, substitutes for the usual lecture with ...

Phillip G. Resor: Using GPS, Strain, and Earthquakes in Structural Geology at Wesleyan University
My course is one of several core courses that Earth and Environmental Science major students can choose from at Wesleyan. The course integrates field and laboratory exercises, quantitative analyses, and readings from the primary literature to teach students about rock deformation and its importance to a variety of societally relevant problems. I taught the GPS, Strain and Earthquakes module about midway through the course after students had been introduced to concepts of deformation, mapping and measurement of geologic structures and quantification of stress.

Structural Geology with Field Geology lab
Phil Resor, Wesleyan University
In this majors-level course students learn how to 1) collect data for structural and tectonic analyses, 2) synthesize and analyze these data to generate and test hypotheses, and 3) apply these structural and ...

Introduction to Physical Geology
Ann Hadley, Manchester Community College
This course is an introduction to the principles governing the composition and structure of the Earth, and the study of land forms and geological processes on the surface and within the Earth. Topics include: rock ...

University of New Mexico - Physical Science
Matthew Nyman, Oregon State University
Natural Science 261L is a physical science class for K-8 pre-service teachers. The class is multi-disciplinary covering standards-based content in physics, earth science and astronomy. Lab and lecture are combined ...

Vince Cronin: Using GPS, Strain, and Earthquakes in Structural Geology at Baylor University
Students get particularly excited when they learn that GPS deformation analyses are a recent research area that most geology majors are not even studying yet and are really tickled to learn frontier science. Learning about earthquakes from the position of research that could be helpful to societal planning, empowers them to think about geology in a much more active way: make geohazards more manageable. They were very interested to see the link between GPS measurements of strain in the crust and faults and folds that seem to be the product or physical manifestation of the strain that they computed. And where those faults pass through population centers, they came to understand the growing threat faced by the people of those communities.

Geologic Catastrophes
Carla Whittington, Highline Community College
This is an introductory-level lecture and activity based course focused on geologic hazards in the Pacific Northwest: earthquakes, tsunami, volcanic eruptions, and landslides. Students are required to access the ...
