Wallace Creek Field Exercises
We have put together model class exercises which instructors may find useful as class assignments to accompany class trips to the Wallace Creek site.
These exercises are designed for college-level students who have had some background in geology and a general background of fault mechanics and earthquake geology. Particular questions in these exercises may require the students to conduct certain exercises or participate in appropriate discussions. Instructors are strongly encouraged to read the "Note to the Professor" at the beginning of the exercises.
The class exercises are available below in both PDF and Microsoft Word formats. Instructors are encouraged to select only the part(s) of these exercises which is (are) appropriate for one's students, and intructors are encouraged to modify these questions and/or add to them as deemed fit.
Five figures are available for download to accompany the exercises. These figures are necessary to complete certain parts of the exercises. The figures are available in both low-resolution GIF (for on-screen viewing) and high-resolution TIFF (for printing) formats.
To download and view the class exercise in PDF format, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you can download
