Looking into Earth with GIS (College Level)
Brian Welch
College-level adaptation of the Earth Exploration Toolbook chapter. Students work with a free GIS program, ArcVoyager SE, to explore earthquake data and plate tectonics. -

Investigating Earthquakes with ArcExplorer GIS
Carla McAuliffe
DATA: Recent and Historical Earthquake Data. TOOL: ArcExplorer Java Edition for Education GIS. SUMMARY: Explore earthquake data and import them into a Geographic Information System (GIS). Analyze the data to predict where the next big earthquake will occur.

Looking into Earth with GIS
Carla McAuliffe; David Smith, GLOBE; Marianne Weingroff, NCAR/UCAR

Using Google Earth & GIS to Create a Customized Map
Omowumi Alabi, University of Missouri-Kansas City
Students are introduced to cartographic concepts and learn how to use GIS to make a proper map with scale information, location (longitude and latitude), orientation and appropriate title.

Investigating Earthquakes with ArcVoyager GIS
Carla McAuliffe; David Smith, GLOBE; Joseph Kerski
DATA: Recent and Historical Earthquake Data TOOL: ArcVoyager Special Edition GIS - Explore earthquake data and import them into a Geographic Information System (GIS). Analyze the data to predict where the next big earthquake will occur.

Exploring NCAR Climate Change Data Using GIS
DATA: NCAR Climate Change Scenarios. TOOL: ArcGIS. SUMMARY: Calculate summer average temperatures during the growing season (June, July, and August) using simulated, present-day, climate-modeled output and compare these to temperatures calculated using projected, future, climate-modeled output. Create a temperature anomaly map to summarize the analysis.

Is Greenland Melting?
