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.

Leaky Layers

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.

Thermal evolution and mantel convection

This page from the DLR Institute of Planetary Research provides some background on thermal convection as well as links to some 2D and 3D animations of mantle convection.

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.


This page from UC-Santa Cruz gives a description of the Earth's geomagnetic history, with several modeled images of the Earth's magnetic field. Included is a link to a PBS Nova animation of a magnetic storm.

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

Imagining Earth's Interior

This image from the COMPRES galleries show a dozen conceptions of the structure of the deep earth. The composite image is by Ed Garnero.

SERTIT satellite maps of Haiti

This page from SERTIT Rapid Mapping includes a collection of annotated satellite maps (some in French) showing damage distribution, gathering areas, water sources, and other information.
