The GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues (GETSI) <https://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/index.html> project is looking for undergraduate instructors to help pilot test newly developed teaching materials next term. 

Each module takes ~2 weeks of class and includes authentic data analysis and use of quantitative skills. Pilot testers earn $500 stipend for giving feedback and turning in examples of student work.

Topics and data sets are:
Introductory level
Monitoring Volcanic Hazards (GPS, InSAR, seismic, tilt)
Water Resources and Risks (GPS, gravity, well gauges)
Measuring the Earth w/ GPS (GPS, precipitation, temperature)
Majors level
Modeling Flood Hazards (river gauges, lidar)
Landslides and Landscape Change (lidar)
Our Changing Climate: Melting Ice and Rising Sea Level (GPS, InSAR, gravity, temperature, sea level)

Please contact Beth Pratt-Sitaula (pratts... at unavco.org <mailto:pratts... at unavco.org>) if you are interested and wish to learn more.
