Geologic Puzzles: Morrison Formation part of Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Images of faulted strata, tilted turbidites, and beach rocks bring the field into the classroom, giving students practice in doing what geoscientists do. These images are examples of geologic puzzles.

Analyzing the Antarctic Ozone Hole (College Level) part of Library:Teaching with GIS:Examples

College-level adaptation of a chapter in the Earth Exploration Toolbook. Examine satellite images of atmospheric ozone in the Southern Hemisphere to study changes in concentration over a time.

Investigating Earthquakes: GIS Mapping and Analysis (College Level) part of Library:Teaching with GIS:Examples

This is a college-level adaptation of a chapter from the Earth Exploration Toolbook. The students download global quake data over a time range and use GIS to interpret the tectonic context.

The Sleeping Mountain part of Library:Role Playing:Examples

In this role-playing scenario, students represent townspeople whose lives and livelihoods are endangered by an active volcano which may or may not erupt in the near future.

Teaching Mineral and Rock Identification with a Jigsaw Activity part of Library:Jigsaws:Examples

In this Jigsaw activity, groups of four students are tasked with identifying 20 different minerals (or rocks).

Energy Consumption Rates across the USA and the World part of Library:Teaching with Google Earth:Examples

A investigation of differences in rates and categories of energy use between countries and US states

Northwest Passage part of Library:Teaching with Google Earth:Examples

An investigation of changes in polar regions using Google Earth.

Making Paints from Minerals part of Library:Teaching Urban Students:Examples

Students prepare simple gouache paints using common minerals that are typically of sedimentary origin (e.g., hematite, limonite, kaolinite, glauconite), and use these paints to produce artifacts that are ...

The Boxing Day Tsunami part of Library:Teaching with Google Earth:Examples

Undergraduate students map data from the National Geophysical Data Center and the United States Geological Survey on Google Earth and study visualizations in order to explore the causes and effects of the Tsunami ...

The Pet Rock Project - Developing Professional Communication in a Petrology Course part of Library:Professional Communications Projects:Examples

How Fast Do Materials Weather? part of Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

A think-pair-share activity in which students calculate weathering rates from tombstone weathering data.

Carbon Dioxide Exercise part of Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Students work in groups, plotting carbon dioxide concentrations over time on overheads and estimating the rate of change over five years.

Whose Fault Is It Anyway? part of Library:Games:Examples

This game has students simulate the propagation of P and S waves after an earthquake and to use the lag between these to determine where in the simulation the earthquake occurred.

Porosity and Permeability of Magmas part of Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet for an iterative calculation to find volume of bubbles and hence porosity, permeability and gas escape as a function of depth.

What is the Volume of the 1992 Eruption of Cerro Negro Volcano, Nicaragua? part of Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to calculate the volume a tephra deposit using an exponential-thinning model.

What is the Relationship between Lava Flow Length and Effusion Rate at Mt Etna? part of Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students use Excel to determine a log-log relationship for flow length vs effusion rate and compare it with a theoretical expression for the maximum flow length.

What is the Volume of a Debris Flow? part of Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to estimate the volume of volcanic deposits using map, thickness and high-water mark data from the 2005 Panabaj debris flow (Guatemala).

How Does Surface Deformation at an Active Volcano Relate to Pressure and Volume Change in the Magma Chamber? part of Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to examine and apply the Mogi model for horizontal and vertical surface displacement vs. depth and pressure conditions in the magma chamber.

US Historical Climate: Excel Statistical part of Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students import US Historical Climate Network mean temperature data into Excel from a station of their choice and use Excel for statistical calculations, graphing, and linear trend estimates.

Vostok Ice Core: Excel (Mac or PC) part of Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students use Excel to graph and analyze Vostok ice core data (160,000 years of Ice core data from Vostok Station). Data includes ice age, ice depth, carbon dioxide, methane, dust, and deuterium isotope relative abundance.
