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

Daisyworld: Stella Mac or PC part of Examples
After constructing a Stella model of Daisyworld students perform guided experiments to explore the behavior of Daisyworld to changes in model parameters and assumptions.
