Viscosity experiments: physical controls and implications for volcanic hazards part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Petrology:Teaching Examples
This activity is a laboratory-style exercise that involves investigating the physical controls on viscosity by pouring different syrup mixtures down an inclined plane and using Jeffreys equation to calculate ...
Weathering Experiment part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities
This project has students dirty several dishes equally and design experiments to determine which analogs of geologic processes are most efficient for removing the baked-on food. Students calculate rates of ...
Who Polluted Surface and Groundwater in This Place? part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students use water-well data and geology to determine which site caused groundwater and surface-water contamination.
When Does Aquifer Heterogeneity Matter? Predicting the Influence of Alternative Conceptual Models on Contaminant Plume Migration part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Hydrogeology:Activities
In this classroom activity, students are given two alternative conceptualizations of aquifer/aquitard distributions in a glacial aquifer system and asked to predict differences in the migration of contaminant ...
When Pond Scum Ruled the Earth - The Proterozoic Fossil Record part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Paleontology:Activities
In this specimen-based activity, students examine microfossils and stromatolites and build an understanding of the Proterozoic paleontological record.
Wooster Case Study - Capture Curve Analysis part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Hydrogeology:Activities
This Excel based exercise has students calculate the shape of the capture zone of a contaminant recovery well. Students perform a sensitivity analysis by varying aquifer and pumping parameters to observe the impact ...
