US Historical Climate: Excel Statistical
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.
Vostok Ice Core: Excel (Mac or PC)
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.
Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC
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.
Wind Surge: Interactive On-line Mac and PC
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.
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.
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.
Conics and Reflection
This is a discovery bases lesson on the reflective properties of the conics: parabolas, ellipses, and hyperbolas.
Trace Gases: Stella II Mac and PC
This Stella model allows students to learn about chemical mass balance in the atmosphere and apply this to atmospheric chlorofluorocarbon and carbon dioxide concentrations.
Daisyworld: Stella Mac or PC
After constructing a Stella model of Daisyworld students perform guided experiments to explore the behavior of Daisyworld to changes in model parameters and assumptions.
Mass Balance Model
Students are introduced to the concept of mass balance, flow rates, and equilibrium using an online interactive water bucket model.
