Teaching Modules

Flooding risk in low-lying landscapes — this module includes a graphical user interface and accompanying worksheets to help educators demonstrate the basic principles behind flooding in deltas.
Relationship between water and sediment discharge — this module is designed to predict the sediment load (mass of sediment per unit time) for given water discharge (volume per unit time) in a river. For specified channel bed slope, channel width, bed surface grain size, and channel resistance coefficient, it produces a graph showing the relation between water discharge and sediment load.
Interactive rain table model — this module allows students to explore how precipitation is routed through landscapes using a steepest descent model.
