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.
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.
Mass Balance Model
Students are introduced to the concept of mass balance, flow rates, and equilibrium using an online interactive water bucket model.
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.
Conics and Reflection
This is a discovery bases lesson on the reflective properties of the conics: parabolas, ellipses, and hyperbolas.
Chemical Equilibrium Misconceptions
This STELLA modeling and writing assignment helps students confront and replace common misconceptions about chemical equilibrium.
