Carbon Dioxide Exercise part of Pedagogy in Action: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.

Global Temperatures part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students analyze the global temperature record from 1867 to the present. Long-term trends and shorter-term fluctuations are both evaluated.

The Modern Atmospheric CO2 Record part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students compare carbon dioxide (CO2) data from Mauna Loa Observatory, Barrow (Alaska), and the South Pole over the past 40 years to help them better understand what controls atmospheric CO2.

Earth's Radiation Budget: Part 1 part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

In this activity students explore the Earth's radiation budget using Earth radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) data archived at the IRI/LDEO Climate Data Library (more info) .

What is the Volume of the 1992 Eruption of Cerro Negro Volcano, Nicaragua? part of Pedagogy in Action: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 Pedagogy in Action: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.

Porosity and Permeability of Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action: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.

How Does Surface Deformation at an Active Volcano Relate to Pressure and Volume Change in the Magma Chamber? part of Pedagogy in Action: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.

What is the Volume of a Debris Flow? part of Pedagogy in Action: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).

Bubbles in Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet and apply the ideal gas law to model the velocity of a bubble rising in a viscous magma.

How Do We Estimate Magma Viscosity? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to examine how magma viscosity varies with temperature, fraction of crystals, and water content using the non-Arrhenian VFT model.

Geologic Mapping I part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Field Labs:Field Lab Examples

Students complete a geologic map of a small area.

Floodplains in the field part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Field Labs:Field Lab Examples

In this lab, students measure a topographic and geologic cross-section across a floodplain by simple surveying and auguring techniques.

part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Field Labs:Field Lab Examples

Describing rock outcrops and hand specimens

What Should We Do About Global Warming? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Role Playing:Examples

This module contains an 8-lesson curriculum to study greenhouse gases and global warming using data and visualizations. The students will summarize the issue in a mock debate or a presentation.

Mock Environmental Summit part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Role Playing:Examples

At the end of a six-week class or unit on global warming, students role-play representatives from various countries and organizations at an international summit on global warming.

Oil Demand and Consumption part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Process of Science:Examples

Data modeling activity using oil reserve and consumption data. Students predict when oil reserves meet or exceed reserves.

Building-Stone Geology part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Field Labs:Field Lab Examples

Students in an area remote from igneous and metamorphic rocks wrote papers on the properties of locally used building stones and gave a walking tour in which they presented their results.

Runaway Greenhouse Effect Exercise part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Role Playing:Examples

This site has a collection of role-playing exercises that provide the students with equations and data to use in collaborative problem-solving.

Being P-Waves and S-Waves part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Role Playing:Examples

Teach students about P-waves and S-waves by having them model them with their own bodies.
