Using GPS Data to Study Crustal Deformation, Earthquakes, and Volcanism: A Workshop for College Faculty


March 18, 2008: 1:00-5:00pm
Geological Society of America Cordilleran / Rocky Mountain Section Meeting, Las Vegas, NV

Course materials

This course is geared toward faculty at two- and four-year institutions who teach general science education and introductory or lower level geoscience courses in which plate tectonics is a topic. Faculty will be introduced to place-based, data-rich educational materials about GPS and plate tectonics to use in their classrooms, receive an introduction to high-precision GPS, and have the opportunity to discuss pedagogical strategies for classroom implementation. Anticipated topics include recent advances in researching slow earthquakes in Cascadia, movement along the San Andreas fault, and monitoring volcano deformation. Although individuals with GPS experience are welcome, knowledge of GPS is not required. Participants should bring a laptop computer, preferably with wireless internet capability.
