Saturday Night on the Range: Rural Life in World War I Era Montana
We often like to imagine rural life in the past as timeless, "traditional," and in some way simpler and more authentic. Yet, rural life in the years around World War I, while sometimes recalled as simpler, could often seem very much like life anywhere else. In this interview, conducted by Laurie Mercier in 1982 for the Montana Historical Society, Tom Staff remembers how Montana farmers took other jobs to supplement their incomes. Here he described how the road crew he worked on left camp for dan
Transforming the Sensing and Numerical Prediction of High Impact Local Weather Through Dynamic Adapt
How to improve technology to better predict severe weather events. Originally posted by SDSC on SDSC's CI Channel at: www.cichannel.org. Transforming the Sensing and Numerical Prediction of High Impact Local Weather Through Dynamic Adaptation By Kelvin Droegemeier
Small Regulatory RNAs May Sharpen Spatial Expression Patterns
The precise establishment of gene expression patterns is a crucial step in development. Formation of a sharp boundary between high and low spatial expression domains requires a genetic mechanism that exhibits sensitivity, yet is robust to fluctuations, a demand that may not be easily achieved by morphogens alone. Recently, it has been demonstrated that small RNAs (and, in particular, microRNAs) play many roles in embryonic development. Whereas some RNAs are essential for embryogenesis, others ar
Genetics in the Classroom and the Curriculum
In this online article, from the Museum's Musings newsletter for educators, two participants in the Genomics Study Group share their strategies for teaching genetics to high school students. They include tips on: where to begin, including teacher preparation and good content starting points how to use genetics labs when they are available, and alternate approaches when they're not ways to use case studies and topics in the news to increase students' interest guidelines for handling bioethics in
Wake Meandering -- An Analysis of Instantaneous 2d Laser Measurements
The vast majority of wind turbines are today erected in wind farms. As a consequence, wake generated loads are becoming more and more important. We present a new experimental technique to measure the instantaneous wake deficit directly, thus allowing us to quantify the wake meandering as well as the instantaneous wake expansion expressed in a meandering frame of reference. The experimental results are subsequently used in a preliminary verification of the basic conjecture of a wake meandering mo

The Ocean's Role in the Climate System
This online article is from the Museum's Seminars on Science, a series of distance-learning courses that allow educators to discuss scientific ideas and classroom applications with AMNH scientists and educators. "The Ocean's Tole in the Climate System" is part of The Ocean System course.
Audio Gallery: Scientists and Social Responsibility
This online audio gallery is from the Museum's Seminars on Science, a series of distance-learning courses designed to help educators meet the new national science standards. Scientists and Social Responsibility, part of the Frontiers in Physical Science seminar, is available in broadband and modem formats and with a printable PDF transcript. The audio discuss some of the social-responsibility issues that scientists are grappling with today.
This fun Web article is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about volcanoes. The article begins by introducing students to Jim Webster, an Earth scientist at the Museum who studies volcanoes and has re-created the conditions for a magma chamber in his lab. In Visit Jim's Lab, students see firsthand how he studies volcanoes, both in the field and in the lab.
Kids' Guide to the Birds of Central Park
An illustrated guide to birds commonly found in Central Park, and an introduction to birding for young naturalists. The guide also includes information on where to go in Central Park to see birds in various habitats: freshwater, woodlands, and open areas.
Remote Sensing Guides: Viewing Data
These guides offer different options for viewing remotely sensed data. They are presented with some specific instructions on how to view data with common and freely available software. Information is also provided to process satellite imagery to make it easier to identify a variety of land cover features. All guides can be viewed online or downloaded in PDF format.
Remote Sensing Guides: Basic
The Remote Sensing guides are designed for people who want to learn how to benefit from remotely sensed imagery without having to learn the nitty-gritty details of how remote sensing works. All guides can be viewed online or downloaded in PDF format. The guides in the Basicset explain and illustrate fundamentalof remote sensing.
Capturing Time: The New York Times Capsule - Exhibition
This Web site, created to complement an American Museum of Natural History exhibition, reports on The New York Times Magazine's millennium time capsule project and offers insight into the concept of time.
What's the Big Idea? Archeology
This fun Web article is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about archeology Piecing Together the Puzzle of History looks at how archaeologists use clues to assemble a picture of the past. Clues to the Past explains that, like all scientists, archaeologists begin with a question they want to explore. Fieldwork Is Where They Dig In explores the challenges of finding a site to excavate. Evidence of an Era has an overview of th
