Climate Monitoring and Diagnostic Laboratory: Carbon Cycle Greenhouse Gases

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Climate Monitoring and Diagnostic Laboratory Carbon Cycle Greenhouse Gases group makes ongoing discrete measurements from land and sea surface sites and aircraft, and continuous measurements from baseline observatories and tall towers. These measurements document the spatial and temporal distributions of carbon-cycle gases and provide essential constraints to our understanding of the global carbon cycle. This website is an interactive atmospheric data visualization tool. This tool enables users to view data, obtain details about sampling locations, manipulate and compare data sets and create custom graphs. Data includes information on a variety of gases, and can be viewed as seasonal patterns, time series, or latitudinal distribution.

Climate TimeLine Information Tool

The Climate TimeLine (CTL) Information Tool summarizes climate history for time spans from 1 year to 100,000 years ago and beyond. The relation between human development, weather, and climate is explored. The CTL explains how past climate is measured, provides basic information on paleoclimatology, and explains the use of paleo proxies. There is a tutorial on drought and how to use the CTL to investigate that topic. There is also a climate glossary and links to climate and paleoclimate data.

NOAA Interactive GIS Climate Maps

This website contains an interactive GIS map with global temperatures, precipitation, ecosystems, population and other layers. The tool can zoom in and out, provide limited geographic information, and display a variety of climatic information.

Exploring Earth

Using imagery and visualizations, this site offers investigations of almost every Earth science topic imaginable. It is structured to follow the unit and chapter headings of an Earth science textbook, offering interactive explorations to complement the topics. The scope is extensive, covering dynamic Earth processes, atmospheric science and ocean science.

Ecopolis: Biofuels

This 3-minute video explains how algae, a biofuel, is being developed as an energy source. It also discusses disadvantages of current biofuels and how algae will overcome these disadvantages. The site also provides links to videos about related topics.

How a Nuclear Power Plant Works

This 88-second video from YouTube shows a labeled computer animation of how a nuclear power plant works to create energy.

How a Coal Power Station Works

This two-minute video tours a coal power station in Ontario to show how coal is used as an energy source. It includes animations to demonstrate machinery used at the plant.

World Oil Consumption - 3D Charts in Google Earth

This site, part of the Google Earth blog, provides 3-D graphs of the world's oil consumption by country, both raw use and per capita. The data comes from the CIA World Factbook.

Oil Formation and Trapping

This animation shows the successive stages in the formation of an oil reserve. In View 1, organic material settles, is buried, and is transformed by heat and pressure into oil. In View 2 an oil trap is formed: the area folds into an anticline, and oil migrates and accumulates in the anticline crest.

Globe Watersheds Module 1: Water Availability

The GLOBE Watershed Dynamics Module 1 GIS tool is a freely available web-based GIS. This tool allows users to analyze precipitation, evaporation, and surface runoff data across the US. Curriculum is available for this project upon request at this time (March, 2010), but will be available through Northwestern University Office of STEM Education Partnerships and through the GLOBE Program Office in the future. Contact Colleen Buzby for more information. c-buzby AT northwestern.edu
