Radioactive Decay and Geochronology part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Students create a STELLA model of the radioactive decay process.

Modeling the oceanic thermohaline circulation with STELLA part of Cutting Edge:Develop Program-Wide Abilities:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
This activity describes the construction of and then experimentation with a STELLA model of the thermohaline circulation in the north Atlantic. Based on a famous paper by Stommel (1961), this model exhibits two ...

Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Examples
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.

Subject: Geoscience:Geology:Structural Geology:Geophysics and Structural Geology, Physics:Oscillations & Waves:Wave Motion, Geoscience:Geology:Geophysics

Wind Surge: Interactive On-line Mac and PC part of Examples
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.

Sea Floor Spreading I part of Examples
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.

Subject: Geoscience:Geology, Oceanography

Sea Floor Spreading II part of Examples
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.
