Amazon Deforestation Model
This series of animations depicts the results of a computer simulation of the effects of deforestation on the surface temperature and precipitation in the Amazon region. Six animations are shown - a control simulation, a deforestation simulation, and the difference between the two for both surface temperature and rainfall. The period simulated is the second half of 1987.

PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Positions - Vertical Suspension
The examiner holds the baby in the upright position with feet off the ground by placing the hands under the arms and around the chest. The baby should be suspended in this position without slipping through the hands of the examiner. If there is shoulder girdle weakness the arms will extend upwards and the examiner will have to reposition their grasp of the baby to avoid the baby slipping through their hands. It feels like trying to hold on to a slippery fish. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on

Lake Mead Shrinks!
Lake Mead reservoir is nestled between Arizona and Nevada and runs up to the Hoover Dam. The reservoir stores Colorado River water and supplies it to farms, homes and business in Southern Nevada, Arizona, southern California and northern Mexico. Scientists at NASA are releasing dramatic pictures of the dwindling water supplies in the drought-stricken western United States. According to the Bureau of Reclamation, the Colorado Basin is in its fourth year of drought and computer models project wate

Splish, Splash, I was Takin' a Bath!
In this lesson, students will explore the causes of water pollution and its effects on the environment through the use of models and scientific investigation. In the accompanying activities, they will investigate filtration and aeration processes as they are used for removing pollutants from water. Lastly, they will learn about the role of engineers in water treatment systems.

Case Study: Levene
Not only bees pollinate flowers. Moths have a specialized mouth structure called a proboscis that is used to extract nectar and pollinate the flower. The moth benefits by getting food and the flower benefits by being pollinated.
Frogs eat insects, and frogs are in turn eaten by larger animals such as birds. Frogs hibernate, or more correctly, they estivate. During estivation, frogs lowers their body temperatures in cold weather and go into a kind of dormancy. Frogs can "migrate" in that they move across land to find ponds and water sources.
Williamsburg's jail, or gaol, set the standard for colonial prison architecture. Visit the building this year as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of its reconstruction. Architectural historian Carl Lounsbury describes the structure.Author(s):

Kinetic and potential energy of atoms result from the motion of electrons. When electrons are excited they move to a higher energy orbital farther away from the atom. The further the orbital is from the nucleus, the higher the potential energy of an electron at that energy level. When the electron returns to a low energy state, it releases the potential energy in the form of kinetic energy. (02:25)
General Biology - Fall 2007. This is a general introduction to plant development, form, and function; population genetics, ecology, and evolution. Intended for students majoring in the biological sciences, but open to all qualified students. In general at the end of Biology 1B students will be able to: describe the scientific method and explain how it would be applied to a novel problem; explain the consequences of random variation when extrapolated over time; distinguish between positive and
Students are asked to explain how XRay images communicate information.
