Applet:Decay part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This website features an animation of the process of radioactive decay. Users can select the half life of the nuclei and watch them decay away as a function of time. Shown also is a histogram of the ...

Countertop Chemistry Experiment 27: Radioactive Decay of Candium part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This site from the Science House simulates radioactive decay using M and M�s candy. The activity explains half-life and radio-active isotopes. A materials list, a table used to plot the decay of ...

Radiometric Dating part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This site covers the use of radioactive decay as a clock to determine the age in years of events in earth history. The activity uses coin tosses to describe isotopes, both stable and unstable, and ...

The Rock Cycle part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This site from Satellite Geodesy describes the rock cycle, and quantitative ways to estimate how long geological features took to form. Popcorn is used to demonstrate half-life and radio-active ...

Global Change 1 Lectures part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This site from the University of Michigan lists the lectures and labs for the Global Change 1 course. Each lecture includes definitions and images that enhance the subject matter, and a self-test is ...

GLobal Ocean Data Analysis Project part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This site from the Global Ocean Data Analysis Project is a cooperative effort to coordinate global synthesis projects. Cruises conducted as part of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment, JGOFS, and ...

Uranium Human Health Fact Sheet part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This two-page PDF fact sheet briefly describes uranium; what it is, where it comes from, and how it is used. Information is also provided about the human health risks of uranium, including the ...

Radiogenic Isotope Laboratory: Provenance Studies part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This site showcases two research projects at the University of Wisconsin that are using radiogenic isotopes to study sediment provenance. One research group is studying large-scale terrane ...

Radiometric Dating part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This activity leads students through derivations of the equations associated with radiometric dating: the radioactive decay equation, the half-life equation and the age equation. After the equations ...
