Comment on this resource
This beginning geophysics course is designed for geology majors. It provides a relatively rigorous and homework-intensive overview of the structure and evolution of the Earth and terrestrial planets, at a level higher than a descriptive geology class, but lower than the standard introduction to geophysics for seniors or first year graduate students. Demonstrations are presented with links to a variety ... Full description.

Plate tectonics is a relatively new scientific concept that has revolutionized our understanding of the dynamic planet upon which we live. This site explains that the theory has unified the study of the Earth by drawing together many branches of the earth sciences, from paleontology (the study of fossils) to seismology (the study of earthquakes). It has provided explanations to questions that scientists ... Full description.

This activity teaches students how bathymetric maps (topographic maps of underwater landforms) are made by using sonar. Students use a simulated sonar exercise to map something they cannot see and then see how close they were to the actual shape. They produce a bathymetric map and answer questions about this process.

This lesson explores the realm and limits of science. It engages students to give examples of topics that can be studied by science and those that cannot. It also takes a look at descriptive terms which reflect the true nature of modern science and those which do not, especially those which do not fit the popular perceptions of science.
