The first lab exercise was preceded by an all day field trip that introduced the surficial and bedrock geology, geological history and the hydrologic and meteorologic instrumentation in the watershed. In the first lab meeting students were introduced to the research question (i.e. What hydrogeological conditions contributed to the failure of the W.H. Miner hydroeletric dam?) and to the specific goals and objectives of the first exercise. The series of exercises introduced geomorphic and hydrogeologic methods of analysis, provided experience with field and laboratory instrumentation and technologies, reinforced quantitative and communication skills and gave students the opportunity to collect and analyze their own data to solve a real-world problem. Addresses student fear of quantitative aspect and/or inadequate quantitative skills Uses geomorphology to solve problems in other fields
