Brittle Vs. Ductile Rock Formation

Brittle Vs. Ductile Rock Formation

Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity, students explore the difference between brittle and ductile deformation in everyday materials and how material behavior is influenced by temperature and the rate of deformation. Then, they will apply this knowledge to rocks deformation and how this is related to the occurrrence of earthquakes and mountain ranges at plate boundaries.

The Distance Between Us and Them

The Distance Between Us and Them

Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity, students will gain an understanding of how geologists determine rates of sea floor spreading between two tectonic plates. Students will also gain experience applying some basic, useful mathematical concepts such as the calculation and use of velocities and conversion from one set of units to another.

Fenwick Island, Maryland and Beyond: Who Owns the Sand?

Fenwick Island, Maryland and Beyond: Who Owns the Sand?

Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson, students will learn about beach processes and complex beach systems. By participating in a role-playing activity, students will also learn that human efforts to stabilize an unstable environment can lead to complex problems. Students will conduct research to prepare materials for their part of the role-playing activity.

Field Exercise: Stream Flow Dynamics & Sedimentation

Field Exercise: Stream Flow Dynamics & Sedimentation

Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity, students will produce a vertical profile of a stream and be able to map it. They will also measure flow velocity differences across a stream transect and equate flow velocity with size of substrate sediment collected. Then they will quantify discharge values for a stream.
