Using Internet technology to deliver an inquiry-based Earth systems course designed for middle school teachers
Abstract: The past decade has seen the exponential growth of the Internet as a tool to deliver on-line instruction at all educational levels. Many first generation on-line courses employed strategies ...

Crustal structure and tectonics from the Los Angeles basin to the Mojave Desert, southern California
A seismic refraction and low-fold reflection survey, known as the Los Angeles Region Seismic Experiment (LARSE), was conducted along a transect extending from Seal Beach, California, to the Mojave ...

Misconception of energy release in earthquakes
Analyzes how textbooks define and describe an earthquake focus or hypocenter. Provides examples from textbooks that reflect an absence of precision in words and diagrams that can foster ...

Scent of a myth: tectonics, geochemistry and geomythology at Delphi (Greece)
Extensive geochemical investigation (of water, travertine, soil and diffuse gas), coupled with geo-structural analysis, provides new insights into local fault-fluid interaction and allows us to ...

Rainfall-induced lahars in the Belham Valley, Montserrat, West Indies
Rain falling on loose volcanic debris over the Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat generates hazardous floods in the Belham Valley. These rainfall-induced lahars vary greatly in discharge and ...

Seven Days

A SCEC-VDO movie showing two approx. magnitude 5 earthquakes that occurred within seven days in Southern California. The second earthquake is on or near the San Andreas fault and led to concern of a ...

This SCEC-VDO movie shows how faults are bounding surfaces of micro-blocks of the earth

Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) Community Fault Model (over 150 major faults of Southern California)

This is a movie made using the SCEC-VDO software showing a 3D animation of the SCEC Community Fault Model (over 150 major faults of Southern California). The movie highlights the San Andreas and ...

Google Earth Science - Page 1

This selection of Google Earth and SketchUp files illustrate and model seismic zones using block models and cross-sections. Regions include Japan, Seattle, the Rockies, San Francisco, Iceland, the ...

Southern California ShakeOut

These compelling earthquake simulations show ground movement and wave propagation as an earthquake rupture propagates along the San Andreas Fault. These simulations are from the Great Southern ...

Counting on the Havoc of Hurricanes: Comparing Statistics of Hurricane Floyd to Other Hurricanes

In this lesson from the New York Times Learning Network, students define and classify the various ways in which numbers are used in forecasting and coping with the effects of a hurricane. This is ...

IRIS: Seismic Monitor

This web site provides an interactive map of global seismic activity that is updated every 30 minutes. The site uses data from the National Earthquake Information Center to produce a world map with ...

Focus of an Earthquake

This simple Flash animation by McGraw-Hill shows the relationship between earthquake focus and earthquake epicenter which is found directly above the focus. Also displayed in the animation are the ...

Formation of a Tsunami

This Flash animation, by McGraw-Hill, illustrates the steps involved in producing a tsunami. First, motion along a submerged fault plane causes a column of water to rise directly above the epicenter. ...

The Nameless Hurricane

This audio clip reports on a rare hurricane in the South Atlantic that crashed into the coast of Brazil. Weather satellites have been circling Earth for more than 40 years and during that time they ...

Hurricane Isabel

This site features one of the remarkable satellite pictures of Hurricane Isabel

The Eye of the Hurricane
