File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
This learning object will work through the basics of file transfer protocol
The purpose of this resource is to measure the pH of water. Students use either a pH meter or pH paper to measure the pH. If using the pH meter, the meter needs to be calibrated with buffer solutions that have pH values of 4, 7, and 10.
The purpose of this resource is to measure the salinity of the water at your hydrology site. Students use a hydrometer to measure the specific gravity of the water sample, and use a thermometer to measure the temperature. With these two values, students will use tables to determine the salinity.
Soil Characterization Protocol
The purpose of this resource is to characterize the physical and chemical properties for each horizon in a soil profile. Students identify the horizons of a soil profile at a soil characterization site, then measure and record the top and bottom depth for each horizon. For each horizon, students describe the structure, color, consistence, texture, and abundance of roots, rocks, and carbonates. Samples are collected and prepared for additional laboratory analysis.
Davis Soil Moisture and Temperature Station Protocol
The purpose of this resource is to log soil data using a Davis soil moisture and temperature station. Soil moisture and temperature sensors are installed at multiple depths and a station is set up to measure and record measurements at 15 minute intervals. These measurements are transferred to your school\s computer and then submitted to GLOBE via email data entry. Gravimetric soil moisture measurements must be taken to develop calibration curves for the soil moisture sensors.
Soil Particle Size Distribution Protocol
The purpose of this resource is to sure the distribution of different sizes of soil particles in each horizon of a soil profile. Using dry, sieved soil from a horizon, students mix the soil with water and a dispersing solution to completely separate the particles from each other. Students shake the mixture to fully suspend the soil in the water. The soil particles are then allowed to settle out of suspension, and the specific gravity and temperature of the suspension are measured using a hydrome
Optional Barometric Pressure Protocol
The purpose of this activity is to measure air pressure. Students record atmospheric pressure using a barometer or altimeter. Intended outcomes are that students gain an understanding that barometric or altimeter pressure varies and its increase or decrease indicates an upcoming change in the weather. Students also learn that the air has weight. Supporting background materials for both student and teacher are included.
Computer Basics : What Is a Protocol?
Protocol is a set of standards hard-coded into a computer used to transmit data across wires or wirelessly in order to get information from one computer to another. Learn about the most common protocol used in computers around the world, called TCPIP, with information from a certified computer technician in this video on computers. (00:57)
O ambiente virtual de aprendizagem em arquitetura e design da UFSC - Do projeto ? realidade [The Vir
This article presents the theoretical basis and the structure that supports the virtual learning process on a collaborative environment for Architecture and Design: VLE-AD. The virtual environment is modelled based on the presuppositions of the Problems Based Learning (PBL) and on the distance collaboration based with the fundamentals of constructivism and socio-interacionism. A specific environment for problems resolution is offered together with syncronic and assyncronic communication tools. T
Reflections on e-Design: The e-Studio Experience
The influence of digital media and information technology on architectural design education and practice is increasingly evident. The practice and learning of architecture is increasingly aided by and dependant on digital media. Digital technologies not only provide new production methods, but also expand our abilities to create, explore, manipulate and compose space. In contemporary design education, there is a continuous demand to deliver new skills in digital media and to rethink architectura
Review response to water quality problems
This learning object contains resources and activities that focus on reviewing a response to a water quality problem. The key areas are: reviewing the incident and completing the documentation requirements. The task is to investigate and evaluate the response and record your findings.
Resources for teaching with photographs
Websites, activities, books, and image collections for classroom use.
Coastal and Marine Geology Program
The Coastal and Marine Geology Program Web site of the US Geological Survey is a clearinghouse of coastal related information and scientific research. Visitors will find a link to the monthly newsletter "Sound Waves;" information on topics of study such as corals, pollution, erosion, and sonar mapping; and goals and plans for the program.

Ice Drillers are Hard Core
Deciphering the secrets of past climate hidden in ice cores depends on the technical skills and ingenuity under pressure of drillers from ICDS, the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Ice Coring and Drilling Services. In this video, ICDS staffers Lou, Mike and Jay explain why they enjoy the life of drillers, braving extreme cold in some of the remotest regions of the globe. Mike says drilling requires both science and art, and why he keeps his hand on the cable even when it's minus 20; Lou talks a
How Much Water Do We Use?
What is our water budget? Studying watersheds is one way to understand how much water we use.
History of Economic Cycles (~1800-2000)
Cycles Research is not a commonly studied subject and yet there are definite trends in history in the finding of information about cycles. Starting with Sir William Herschel there have been reports of various length cycles in many economic variables including commodity yields and prices, stock markets, business conditions, building activity, growth, price fluctuations and industrial production. The common cycles periods found over extended time periods are mentioned and the people that they are
Homogenization of northern U.S. Great Lakes forests due to land use
Human land use of forested regions has intensified worldwide in recent decades, threatening long-term sustainability. Primary effects include conversion of land cover or reversion to an earlier stage of successional development. Both types of change can have cascading effects through ecosystems; however, the long-term effects where forests are allowed to regrow are poorly understood. We quantify the regional-scale consequences of a century of Euro-American land use in the northern U.S. Great Lak
