Teacher Education: Studies to determine the critical elements involved in Earth Science teacher education. Development of inquiry activities to involve elementary and secondary school students in learning Earth Science. Teachers as Partners In Research: Classroom teachers are active participants in scientific iniquiry, taking part in faculty field studies in geology as part of the Master of Science Teaching program. Sequence Stratigraphy of Active Margins: Field based studies are being undertaken to determine the relationships between Paleozoic strata deposited in the Appalachian Foreland Basin and similar age strata in Ohio, Indiana, and the Michigan Basin. Sequence Stratigraphy of Passive Margins: Detailed sequence stratigraphic studies of the Atlantic Coastal Plain and the Southeastern United States are in progress to determine the nature and paleontology of sequence boundaries of late Cretaceous age in order to descrininate between eustatic change of sea-level or tectonics as the first order mechanism for the development of genetically related stratigraphic units.
