Fall 2011 not offered
In the lab class we work on volcanic rocks (chemical analyses), carry out experiments with our backyard volcano (explosions registered on video) and with artificial lava flows, and we take field trips to study volcanic outcrops in New England.
Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Quantitative Reasoning
Students design experiments that simulate volcanic processes. Students calculate rates of cooling and dispersal of volcanic materials from experimental data.
