This lab exercise involves small teams of 3-4 students working to collect a profile of gravity measurements over a topographic feature. There is a slope break on our campus where this exercise is done, but any fairly prominent topographic feature will suffice. The students make several measurements with the gravimeter, and collect their own topographic data using meter-tapes and hand-levels although a GPS unit could also be used. The students then convert the meter readings into relative gravity measurements, and make graphs using several different assumed densities. This exercise gives the students practice in collecting field data, analyzing numerically and graphically, and understanding theoretical concepts.
