Saturday, October 26th, 2013, 8am–12pm
GSA Annual Meeting - Denver, CO

GSA Short Course #518. Modernizing the Seismology in Your 100- and 200-Level Geoscience Courses.
Sat., 26 Oct., 8 a.m.–noon. Auraria Campus, Burghardt Room
US$25. Limit: 25. CEU: 0.4. Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a
US$25 coupon redeemable at the onsite GSA bookstore.
Instructors: Maggie Benoit, The College of New Jersey; Michael Hubenthal, IRIS Consortium; John Taber, IRIS Consortium
Cosponsors: National Science Foundation; IRIS Consortium

Engage with inquiry-based, data-rich classroom modules that introduce undergraduates to core geoscience concepts, while also showcasing areas where modern seismological research actively contributes to our understanding of fundamental Earth processes. Modules, rooted in seismology, ultimately convey a variety of topics commonly included in introductory geoscience classes. How do faults slip? How does the near surface environment affect natural hazards and resources? How do magmas ascend and erupt? How do processes in the ocean and atmosphere interact with the solid Earth? What is the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary? Where are water and hydrocarbons hidden beneath the surface? Please bring a laptop.
