Sea Floor Spreading I
In this introductory Excel tutorial (Activity I) students use Excel to explore the geodynamics model equation for ocean depth around a sea-floor spreading center. For students with no prior Excel experience.

Earth System Topics: Solid Earth, Oceans

Sea Floor Spreading II
Students import ocean bathymetry data from text files, they then use Excel to graph these observations along with model prediction to assess the model's ability to simulated the observed topographic features of the North Atlantic.

Earth System Topics: Solid Earth, Oceans

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.

Earth System Topics: Climate, Atmosphere

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.

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

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.

Earth System Topics: Biosphere, Evolution

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.

Earth System Topics: Climate, Atmosphere

Fishing Game: Stella PC and Mac
As manager in the fish and wildlife service you are charged with making policy regarding the management of a regional fishery.

Earth System Topics: Human Dimensions, Biosphere, Human Dimensions:Resources, Policy

Salmon Smolt: Stella PC and Mac
The Stella Smolts Migration Model focuses on the spring migration of hatchery smolts to the ocean. It may be used to test the relative merits of barging fish or drawing down the reservoirs to help the smolts reach the ocean.

Earth System Topics: Human Dimensions:Resources, Biosphere

Wave Superposition: Interactive On-line Mac and PC
An Interactive JAVA environment to allow one to look at the linear superposition of up to 4 ocean waves

Earth System Topics: Oceans
