US Historical Climate: Excel Statistical part of Examples
Students import US Historical Climate Network mean temperature data into Excel from a station of their choice and use Excel for statistical calculations, graphing, and linear trend estimates.

Earth System Topics: Climate, Atmosphere

Vostok Ice Core: Excel (Mac or PC) part of Examples
Students use Excel to graph and analyze Vostok ice core data (160,000 years of Ice core data from Vostok Station). Data includes ice age, ice depth, carbon dioxide, methane, dust, and deuterium isotope relative abundance.

Earth System Topics: Solid Earth:Earth Materials, Climate, Atmosphere

Daisyworld: Stella Mac or PC part of Examples
After constructing a Stella model of Daisyworld students perform guided experiments to explore the behavior of Daisyworld to changes in model parameters and assumptions.

Earth System Topics: Earth's Cycles:Carbon Cycle, Climate, Atmosphere, Biosphere, Ecology, Atmosphere:Weather

Mass Balance Model part of Examples
Students are introduced to the concept of mass balance, flow rates, and equilibrium using an online interactive water bucket model.

Earth System Topics: Biosphere:Ecology, Climate, Earth's Cycles, Atmosphere

Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Examples
Students vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of four concentric regions of Earth and match "data" for travel times vs. angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to detector.

Earth System Topics: Solid Earth:Deformation

World Population Activity II: Excel part of Examples
(Activity 2 of 2)In this intermediate Excel tutorial students import UNEP World population data/projections, graph this data, and then compare it to the mathematical model of logistic growth.

Earth System Topics: Human Dimensions:Population

Genetic Drift part of Examples
In this biology simulation, students use a mathematical simulation of genetic drift to answer questions about the factors that influence this evolutionary process. Students run a series of simulations varying allele frequency and population size and then analyze their data and propose a model to explain their results.

Earth System Topics: Biosphere, Evolution

Human Demographics part of Examples
In this biology simulation students explore factors that change human population growth including age at which women begin to bear children, fertility rate and death rate.

Earth System Topics: Human Dimensions, Biosphere, Human Dimensions:Population

Wind Surge: Interactive On-line Mac and PC part of Examples
Wind surge is a JAVA based applet for exploring how water level on the windward and leeward side of a basin depends on wind speed, basin length, water depth, and boundary type.

Earth System Topics: Human Dimensions:Natural Hazards, Atmosphere, Weather

World Population Activity I: Excel part of Examples
(Activity 1 of 2) This activity is primarily intended as an introductory tutorial on using Excel. Students use Excel to explore population dynamics using the Logistic equation for (S-shaped) population growth.
