Temple Crest Park - Tampa Florida Plastic Pollution
Video encouraging cooperation and collaboration in the efforts to clean up the plastic pollution at a park in Tampa, Florida. Videos that document before and after clean up efforts are a good way to mobilize communities and measure impact.
Hi-tech physics, toxic soils and mussel shells
In this week's Planet Earth podcast from the impressively-named Diamond Light Source in Oxfordshire, England, hear how two researchers are using hi-tech physics to study different aspects of the environment.

Ciencia del color
La ciencia del color es una materia interdisciplinar, que se nutre de fundamentos físico-químicos y psicológicos de la interacción luz-materia-ojo, para aplicarlo en teorías y técnicas que sirven para diseñar, fabricar y medir objetos coloreados. La asignatura sirve para fomentar y capacitar al estudiante en la implementación de los conocimientos asimilados previamente en la definición y resolución de problemas reales relacionados con el control del color en numerosos sectores industri
Pirates Amongst Us
A disgruntled pirate's haunted history lingers in the town where his shipmates met the hangman. Carson Hudson and Willie Balderson team up for "Pirates Amongst Us."Author(s):
Geometric Searching In Extended CSG Models : Application to Solid Modeling and Viewing
In this paper, the CSG representation scheme is augmented with the 'cartesian product.' The sweep method of generating solids is encompassed by this 'Extended CSG' formalism. The point inclusion problem encountered in the area of geometric searching in computational geometry is discussed in the context to solid models represented by 'extended CSG.' A simple algorithm to solve it that has a time complexity O(n), where n is the number of primitives, is presented. Allowing for preprocessing and ext
The Changing Geographic Distribution of Malaria with Global Climate Warming
In this exercise, students analyze climate data to find areas in the southern United States that are now close to having conditions in which the malaria parasite and its mosquito hosts thrive. Then they attempt to forecast when areas might become climatically suitable. Learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, materials, assessment tips and related resources are provided.
Winter Field Lab: Pond Hydrology
This field activity may be implemented during late winter or early spring when things have not quite thawed. From a frozen pond, students collect bathymetric data, measure water temperature and conductivity, locate ground-water inputs, and extract a sediment core. Back in the lab, they make hand and computer-contoured bathymetric maps, temperature and conductivity cross-sections, and run visual-core log, loss-on-ignition, and magnetic susceptibility tests. Then they draw conclusions about water
Norman Borlaug: 60 Years of Fighting Hunger
Norman E. Borlaug was awarded the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize for developing methods to help the world's poorest nations feed themselves. Born of Norwegian descent, Dr. Borlaug was raised near Cresco, a small farming community in northeast Iowa. He earned a B.S. in forestry and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in plant pathology from the University of Minnesota. From 1942 to 1944, Dr. Borlaug worked as a microbiologist for E.I. Dupont de Nemours Foundation, in charge of research on industrial and agricultural
Fundamentals of Die Casting Design
This book describes the fundamentals of design of the die casting process and die mold/runner. It is intended for people who have at least some knowledge of the basics of fundamental science, such calculus, physics etc. This book will benefit the die casting engineer (the project and process engineers) as well as managers and anyone else who deals with the die casting operations will find this information useful.
Optical Tweezers and Applications
Did you ever imagine that you can use light to move a microscopic plastic bead? Explore the forces on the bead or slow time to see the interaction with the laser's electric field. Use the optical tweezers to manipulate a single strand of DNA and explore the physics of tiny molecular motors. Can you get the DNA completely straight or stop the molecular motor?
