Sediment Dispersal and Continental Margin Stratigraphy part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This module examines different sediment dispersal systems and their relationships and controls on margin stratigraphy and geometry, using data sets from the Fly and Waipaoa river systems.

Holocene Optimum: A time of massively increased sediment discharge for Asian Rivers part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This is one component of the Source to Sink Mini Lesson Set This module is part of a larger set of mini-lessons that explores the variations in water and particulate mass flux from rivers that result from changing ...

Sediments and carbon burial on the continental margins part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This lesson explores factors that control the character and fate of carbon delivered by rivers from the continents to the oceans, using mapped characteristics and data from 12 different rivers, including the MARGINS Waipaoa and Fly systems.

From Source to Sink: How Sediment Reflects the Journey from the Mountains to the Sea part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This is one component of the Source to Sink Mini Lesson Set Continental margins are phenomenal places to study the modern sedimentary cycle because sediment in margin regions has been routed from mountains ...

S2S Introduction: The Source-to-Sink Mini-Lesson Series part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:Mini Lesson Collection 2014
This module focuses on characterizing different river systems to better understand where sediment comes from and the variables that control sediment supply to continental margins in different tectonic settings.
