Vince Cronin: Using GPS, Strain, and Earthquakes in Structural Geology at Baylor University part of GPS, Strain, and Earthquakes
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.
