Looking to incorporate cutting edge water resources data into your undergraduate courses?

Using GPS and gravity data sets in undergraduate courses can be challenging, as few prepared resources are available. Many instructors may only be partially familiar with the wider range of data sets and methods. This short course gives instructors hands-on experience with a curricular module that feature GPS/GNSS and gravity data alongside more traditional water measurement methods such a snow pillow stations and ground water wells. The module features the societal applications of geoscience while challenging them to develop quantitative skills relevant to scientific data analysis. Appropriate for courses such as hydrogeology, hydrology, earth system science, environmental science, and introductory geoscience for majors. The short course also provides structured time for discussion and planning implementation into undergraduate courses. Teaching module:  Measuring Water Resources with GPS, Gravity, and Traditional Methods.

Note: If you did the UNAVCO/GETSI short course in 2017, you already learned about this module and should not take this course.
