Welcome to the Geography-Earth Science Geophysics webpage

The purpose of this site is to provide information about the geophysical teaching and research initiatives in the Department of Geography & Earth Science funded by NSF CCLI Grant(Award Number: 0941777).Funded initially in2010, the granttitled "Integration of Near-surface Geophysical Imaging Technology into a Geoenvironmental Science Undergraduate Curriculum" has allowedour departmentand faculty the opportunityto purchase Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), ElectroMagnetism(EM) and Electical Resistivity(ER) equipment.

Grant Co-PI's: Dr. Joseph T. Zume and Dr. Sean R. Cornell

Collaborating faculty: Dr. Christopher Woltemade and Dr. Thomas P. Feeney

Please refer back to this website oftenas we develop and add resources and information about our program and curricular developments.

The Curriculum Bridge Model

Incorporates essential elements of an otherwise specialized field (or technology) into relevant sections of various courses in an existing curriculum. In this case, geophysics incorporated into the starred courses.

This is advantageous because:

  • No new courses need be created
  • Students learn first hand, the inter-connectedness between disciplines.
  • Students get opportunities that will otherwise remain elusive
