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.

Subject: Geoscience:Geology, Oceanography

Trace Gases: Stella II Mac and PC part of Examples
This Stella model allows students to learn about chemical mass balance in the atmosphere and apply this to atmospheric chlorofluorocarbon and carbon dioxide concentrations.
