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.
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.
GIS Imagery for Haiti Earthquake
A collection of GIS map data compiled by Google Crisis Response, containing downloadable high-resolution images from several sources.
Magnetic Reversal video
This mpeg video shows the output of a magnetic field model during which a magnetic reversal occurs. The model is superimposed on a stationary Earth to highlight the field changes that would be visible from the surface during such a reversal. The video is part of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center's Scientific Visualization Gallery.
Numerical dynamo models
This page from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology explains current research modeling geomagnetic processes, including magnetic reversals and secular variation. Includes three supporting figures.
Figure from the Nature Geoscience article, Geodynamics: Layer cake or plum pudding? by Paul Tackley (Nature Geoscience 1, 157 - 158 (2008)). The figure shows the current understanding of the interaction between the 660 km discontinuity, the core-mantle boundary, downgoing slabs, upwelling plumes.
Mantle Convection Models in the GEON IDV
This page about the GEON Integrated Data Viewer examines its use in visualizing mantle convection. There are also links to six animations of convection that were created using IDV with different parameters.
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.
