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.

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.

Human Demographics

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.

Genetic Drift

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.

World Population Activity I: Excel

(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.

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.

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.

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.

Daisyworld: Interactive On-line PC and Mac

Students use a JAVA interface design by R.M. MacKay to explore the Daisy World model. The JAVA interface comes with a link to a 6-page student activity page in PDF format.

Mass Balance Model

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