This one hour webinar is conducted by PolarTREC alumni Missy Holzer. She highlighted her work with the High Arctic Change expedition 2008 and bringing inquiry-based science into her classroom. This webinar is part of the C-ISE online professional development course.
This website is produced by the geological mapping programme GEOKART of the Norwegian Polar Institute. We want to provide information for geologists working or interested in the Norwegian polar areas, with emphasis on Svalbard (Spitsbergen).
We want to inform about: NPI's geological programmes, activities, services and products, logistic requirements and working conditions in polar areas, ongoing activities, and basic scientific
This geologic time calculator allows the user to manipulate the relativism of time to other markers. It builds from the classic analogy for illustrating the relative durations of parts of the geologic time scale is the yardstick.
In this activity students learn about varves, annual sediment layers found in lakes. Students will analyze authentic varve data from New England in order to correlate data from three different geographic locations .
Students will analyze authentic varve sediment data and create a graph of varve thickness. Students will use their results to make inferences about
This lesson allows students to use online mapping tools to investigate global snow cover changes. Students develop a problem statement about global snow cover and then use mapping tools to investigate their problem or question.
Students will become familiar with the data and tools used to analyze snow cover changes in order to answer questions pertaining
We go places, but what do we do with the billions of snippets of information we absorb? How do we process the information so that it means something to us when we can no longer be there? As a geographer, my objective was to be able to observe, participate and categorize the billions of pieces of visual information
Case studies provide a brief overview or examination of events that impact or alter the way people function and live day to day within the human and physical environment. They help by providing students with “real world” examples that relate to the theoretical content they are studying.
Students will prepare a case study illustrating the impact
This article highlights the REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) Students upcoming fieldwork at Kapp Linne. The students, researchers, and PolarTREC teacher, Missy Holzer, spent a few days at the University Centre at Svalbard before spending 4 weeks at their field site.
