You are kindly requested to complete a project using MATLAB. The project should be about a geologic process and should identify some specific questions related to that process that you can design a model to answer. Please note that I chose my model to be about U-Series Dating.
You should prepare a concise paper (5-6 pages) in which you clearly state the question, state a hypothesis, list any simplifying assumptions, state the equations and boundary conditions to be solved, describe the method of solution, describe your results in writing, complimented by any necessary figures, and what you conclude from them. Likewise, all code necessary to reproduce your results should be uploaded to the final project. You should cite any references as necessary using the style of Geophysical Research Letters. A complete project should be turned in by no later than June 7, 3:00 PM (EST).
There is also a final project showcase that should consist of giving a very short (4 minutes, ~4 PowerPoint slides) presentation to the class about what you did. This is to tell the class what question you were interested in, how you approached it, and what you learned. This must be turned in with the final project, by June 7, 3:00 PM (EST).
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.
