WWW Animations of the Climate Research Unit-UK Temperature Record: 1856 to 1997

NOAA Paleoclimatology program provides six different animations of Climate Research Unit (CRU) temperature data. Data can be used to view globally mapped temperature for the time period of available data (1856 to 1997). In each case, temperature anomalies (composed to the period 1961 to 1990) are mapped (from website).

Natural Resources Conservation Service: Climate Information Retrieval

This website, created and maintained by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, contains an interactive map containing climate information for each state. Users can click on states and find information and data for every county in every state. Data includes daily mean temperature, frost free days, growing season, and monthly temperature and precipitation. Users may also download data from this page.

Climate Diagnostic Center, United States Climate Page

This website, developed by the NOAA-CIRES Climate Diagnostic Center, provides a clickable map with national climate data. Users click on states and find another clickable topographic map of each state. Data within each state includes graphical representation basic climatology and monthly rankings for temperatures and precipitation.

Essentials of Geology: Hot Spot Volcanoes Animation

This animation, listed as 2.10 in Chapter Two in the Essentials of Geology web page, shows how hot spot volcanoes arise. Users may access this and many other animations describing plate tectonic processes from the Chapter Two webpage. Users may also follow links to other chapters in the Essentials of Geology book.


This website, designed for a Sediments and Strata course at the University of California- Davis, contains numerous photographs of turbidite sequences in outcrop. Photos are divided into two categories; turbidites in the Cretaceous Pigeon Point Formation and turbidites in the Cretaceous Great Valley Sequence. Users may also follow a link to other sedimentary photos.

Observe an animation showing the formation of an unconformity.

This website hosts an animation depicting the formation of an unconformity in the rock record. Users can play, rewind, fast forward and stop the animation at any point in the formation as well as read detailed text outlining the process. The animation is part of the Earth Exploration Visualization collection.

Observe how fossils can form

This website hosts an animation depicting how cast and mold fossils are preserved in the rock record. Users can play, rewind, fast forward and stop the animation at any point in the formation as well as read captions outlining the process. The animation is part of the Earth Exploration Visualization collection.

Canyon Processes-Sediment Transport Events

This website hosts images and text explaining sediment transport processes and overall morphology of Monterey Bay, California and the adjacent Salinas Valley. Images include a schematic representation of some of the major sediment transport routes for fluvial materials entering the bay and satellite images of suspended sediments during the 1998 flood. This site is designed and maintained by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.

Monterey Canyon Turbidity Flow

This website describes two turbidity events flowing down Monterey Canyon. The flows were recorded in December 2002 by a benthic mooring device located at1300 m depth. The website contains a detailed description of the events as well as graphs and illustrations of the effect of the event on instrumentation, including parameters such as flow speed and temperature.

The fluid dynamics of natural turbidity currents, Lillooet Lake, British Columbia, Canada

This website describes the outcome of two field studies at the University of Leeds, that examined the dynamics of density currents generated by river inflow into Lillooet Lake. This website presents the background to the study, details of the methodology as well as photographs and graphical representations of the findings. The study provides the first dataset from natural sediment-laden turbidity currents and bridges the gap between natural currents and laboratory and numerical simulations.
