Hyperreality Journeys Into the Earth: Incorporating Modern Imaging and Electron Microscopy Techniques Into Geoscience Hybrid and Online Courses

COIL is proud to support the Hyperreality Journeys Into the Earth: Incorporating Modern Imaging and Electron Microscopy Techniques Into Geoscience Hybrid and Online Courses project through our Research Initiation Grant Program.

Abstract:

We will immerse students into hyper-reality virtual environments where they interact with geologic sites and specimens in ways not typically possible in physical and virtual field and lab experiences (e.g., fly over, zoom in/out from landscape to atomic resolution, select outcrops, perform microscopy studies) to visualize the processes that created and shaped geologic formations at scales from kilometers (103m) to angstroms (10-10m).
