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.

Mass Balance Model

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

World Population Activity II: Excel

(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.

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.

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.

Energy Balance Climate Model: Stella Mac and PC

Students explore a Global Energy Balance Climate Model Using Stella II. Response of surface temperature to variations in solar input, atmospheric and surface albedo, atmospheric water vapor and carbon dioxide, volcanic eruptions, and mixed layer ocean depth. Climate feedbacks such as water vapor or ice-albedo can be turned on or off.

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.
