An overview of the role of blogging in the dissemination of primary research data in the UsefulChem project. Speaker: Jean-Claude Bradley.
Wireless Sensor Networks for Ecology
Field biologists and ecologists are starting to open new avenues of inquiry at greater spatial and temporal resolution, allowing them to "observe the unobservable" through the use of wireless sensor networks. Sensor networks facilitate the collection of diverse types of data (from temperature to imagery and sound) at frequent intervals -- even multiple times per second -- over large areas, allowing ecologists and field biologists to engage in intensive and expansive sampling and to unobtrusively
Harmonic Cloud Patterns on Jupiter
Regularly spaced clouds appear in Jupiter's belts, sometimes white spots and sometimes swirling waves. A polar projection of Jupiter, made by NASA from the 2000 flyby, allows accurate testing of the hypothesis that these waves form as predicted by the Harmonics Theory. It is found that expected strong harmonics 12, 24 and 72 are present.

Meeting God: Elements of Hindu Devotion
This Web site, created to complement a AMNH exhibition, explores the third largest religion in the world, Hinduism. It includes the following sections:Elements of Hindu Devotion -- an in-depth look at worship in the home, community worship, temple worship, processionals, ephemeral shrines and images, sacred acts, and renunciation. Portraits of Worship -- a collection of eight annotated photographs that shows the personal shrines of Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains in and around New York. Resources -- a
This expedition guide was written as a self-directed tour for the temporary biodiversity exhibit that preceded the museum's Hall of Biodiversity. The site continues to serve as a terrific resource for understanding biodiversity.
Yellowstone: Monitoring the Fire Below
This interactive feature story is part of Science Bulletins, an innovative online and exhibition program that offers the public a window into the excitement of scientific discovery. Published in June 2006, this Earth Bulletin looks at the geologic history of Yellowstone National Park. It includes the following components: Three online essays - Yellowstone National Park Is a Volcano, Signs of Restlessness, and Volcanic Witness; An Interview with Bob Smith -- each available in a print-friendly for
Spirits in Steel: The Art of the Kalabari Masquerade
This Web site, created to complement a AMNH exhibition, explores the art of the Kalabari Masquerade.
Astro Viz: Colliding Galaxies
Our innovative Science Bulletins include interactive data visualizations that offer a three-dimensional journey through the cosmos. Published in September 2005, this Astro Viz takes a look at what happens when galaxies collide.
Climate Change Graphics from the Hall of Planet Earth
This collection of Climate Change Graphics is from Earth: Inside and Out, part of the Museum's Seminars on Science series. These distance-learning courses are designed to help educators meet the new national science standards.
Arthur Ross Hall of Meteorites
This Web site, created to complement the Hall of Meteorites, looks at these fallen rocks and what they tell scientists about the formation of stars and planets.
Living and non-living things
Living things often rely on non-living things to accomplish daily tasks. Living things have several characteristics that non-living things do not, such as the ability to move, eat, breathe, and reproduce. Living things and non-living things can interact even though they do not have the same characteristics.
3.8 Revision questions
Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.
Tissue movement in bipopulation tumour cord growth
Simulation of tumor cord growth where conversion of the tumor to glycolytic (anaerobic) metabolism takes place under hypoxia. This video shows volume fraction of glycolytic cell population and velocity of tissue movement. Isolines show hypoxia limits for aerobic and anaerobic cell lines respectively. This video reflects work in progress and may be different from the final results.
Economic History & History of Thought
The factories that changed the world, 1.) the mule-powered spinning mill (Britain in the 1820s), 2.) from the American system to the Ford system (1900s), and 3.) Toyota Production System (Lean manufacturing), are contrasted and the progression of production systems of the 19th and 20th centuries are arranged in order.
