|Resource Type:||Classroom Activities; Curricula and Instruction|
|Summary:||Data from the EarthScope's Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO) is used by middle, high school, and introductory geology students in a module exploring Yellowstone National Park. Specifically, students incorporate PBO's high-precision GPS data with data on Yellowstone's seismicity, heat flow, eruptive history, and cultural features such as roads and lodges to site a (fictitious) research station within the park.|
