    Material you should know for any geotechniques class


    Old Classes (taught within the last 5 years or so):



    • Email Etiquette: Guidelines for writing to your professors
    • All of us need to take this bullshit class.
    • Some notes on plagarism. More at wikipedia.
    • How to cite papers, websites, etc. All the major styles are covered here. If you're not sure which to use, I suggest APA.
    • If you don't know how to touch-type, you will be in for a very long quarter (and career) spending way too much time trying to type.  The time you spend learning will pay for itself in one quarter. 
    • Also, for those of you who have never read a guide to netiquette and cell phone etiquette (the do's and don'ts of communicating electronically), please visit wikipedia's site - which includes links to many other pages.
    • Radical Cartography. Cool maps and stuff (goto "Yummy"). Worth a browse


    My research generally revolves around GIS and remote sensing applications in environmental modeling. I've worked with everything from archaeology to rattlesnakes, with many things inbetween. A full list of my projects and publications can be found in my CV.
