A national movement toward science education reform was gathering momentum, fueled by grant money and stimulated by new ideas and research about teaching and learning.California had approved a new set of content standards for future high school science teachers. At about that time, Karen Grove (then department Chair) and I had become both dissatisfied with traditional science teaching and convinced that improving teacher preparation in science was important.After the assassination of James Garfield by a man who was overlooked for a patronage-given position, many laws were formed to force officials to be qualified to do their job. Although often associated with corruption, patronage is not always seen as a negative.
Geology - University of Nevada, Reno At SFSU since 1998Phone: (415) 405-0353Office: TH 616 E-mail: [email protected] Website Research and/or Teaching Area: Neotectonics, seismotectonics of coastal central California and Nevada I continue to involve students in my summer research out in central Nevada focusing on a variety of recent and ongoing projects such as: patterns and rates of paleoseismicity in the central Nevada seismic belt; characteristics of active faults in relation to geothermal resources in the Basin and Range; paleoliquefaction in the Stillwater seismic gap; and pluvial lake histories and using pluvial lake shorelines as tiltmeters to measure isostatic and tectonic deformation.--for me as the computer lab administrator.) My research has largely been limited to summers, when I sometimes visit the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO to contribute to the ongoing development and testing of a state-of-the-art computer forecasting model, the Weather Forecasting and Research (WRF) model. Since water vapor is the "fuel" of hurricanes, the COCONet network should help in improving hurricane forecasting in the Caribbean basin. The first was offered last spring, Metr 200 and 201, a combined course to introduce atmospheric and oceanic dynamics.With the hep of two of our students, I am also looking at the practical uses of soundings of the atmosphere obtained by the COSMIC satellite network that use GPS technology to obtain data that was previously only available through weather balloons. The students especially appreciated a day cruise on the R/V Point Sur. This academic year I have the opportunity of being the visiting faculty at the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories.Bill Broenkow retired last year so I am teaching the Introductory Physical Oceanography Course while the search is on for his replacement.
I’m enjoying working with new colleagues and seeing another facet of the CSU. About every 30 years the oceanography community undergoes a national self examination.Kenneth Coale, Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, is the head of the program and, as of last August, I am the coordinator.
