Global Change Teacher's Guide
Global change is a relatively new area of scientific study using research from many disciplines to determine how Earth systems change, and to assess the influence of human activity on these changes. The Global Change section of the Teaching Packet consists of an introduction and five activities. In teaching these activities, four themes are important: time, change, cycles, and Earth as home.
Water Science for Schools
We offer information on many aspects of water, along with pictures, data, maps, and an interactive center where you can give opinions and test your water knowledge. Looking at water, you might think that it's the most simple thing around. Pure water is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. But it's not at all simple and plain and it is vital for all life on Earth. Where there is water there is life, and where water is scarce, life has to struggle or just "throw in the towel." So what is it about w
The Water Science Picture Gallery: A Flowing Well
This image is part of the U.S. Geological Survey's Water Science for Schools website. Other imagery includes photographs of water being measured and sampled, being used in various ways, and illustrations of how human activity influences the water system. Written descriptions of activities being shown are provided. Links to other parts of the Water Science for Schools website are also present.
Where Deserts Form
Most of Earth's deserts can be found in dry areas created by global circulation patterns. The deserts of our world are not restricted by latitude, longitude, or elevation. This site, produced by the U.S. Geological Survey, uses text and pictures to describe how atmospheric circulation patterns influence the locations of deserts on Earth and possibly on other terrestrial planets as well.
Installing Monitoring Wells in Soils
This document provides general guidance on how to install and use piezometers and water-table wells to investigate soil water regimes under conditions commonly encountered in Soil Survey and hydropedology studies.
Doing the right thing: corporate social responsibility in a global marketplace
Globalisation, mass consumer awareness and public accountability are all factors in persuading companies to adopt ethical policies. As companies become more accountable not only for their own actions but for those within their supply chain, they have to adapt to ensure success within the context of the global society they operate in. Professor Jeremy Moon (Professor of Corporate Social Responsibility at the University of Nottingham Business School and Director of the International Centre for Co
Superspace: One Thousand and One Lessons in Supersymmetry
We introduce superfields in chapter 2 for the simpler world of three spacetime dimensions, where superfields are very similar to ordinary fields. We skip the discussion of nonsuperspace topics (background fields, gravity, etc.) which are covered in following chapters, and concentrate on a pedagogical treatment of superspace. We return to four dimensions in chapter 3, where we describe how supersymmetry is represented on superfields, and discuss all general properties of free superfields (and the
WISE - The Web-Based Inquiry Science Environment
The Web-based Inquiry Science Environment (WISE) is a free on-line science learning environment for students in grades 4-12. In WISE, students work on exciting inquiry projects on topics such as genetically modified foods, earthquake prediction, and the deformed frogs mystery. Students learn about and respond to contemporary scientific controversies through designing, debating, and critiquing solutions, all via the internet. Curriculum projects are complete and ready to use in the classroom. The
"Water Alert!" is an interactive educational resource on water, environment and sanitation where young people are engaged in an adventure of strategy and survival. The goal is to ensure that the people in this drought-challenged village, who are facing the threat of a flood, have water that is safe to drink and a clean and healthy school environment. Includes a facilitation guide with instructions for use of the game as a teaching tool and suggestions for classroom activities relating to water,
How to Make a Volcano
Making a volcano involves mixing active yeast, warm water, hydrogen peroxide, a bit of red food coloring and dish soap together into a small container to create a chemical reaction. Create a volcano, under parental supervision, with a demonstration from a science teacher in this video. Run time 03:37.
The Fact of Global Warming
Slowly, the globe confronts global warming. Quickly, the globe warms. But can we trust computerized climate models? What's happening to the oceans and the ice? Could warming damage your lungs?
Global Climate Change: Environmental Studies 245
This website is the homepage of the St. Olaf interdisciplinary course, Global Climate Change. The course focuses on how and why Earth's climate has changed throughout its history and how it is likely to change in the near future. The course draws from geology, chemistry, meteorology, oceanography, and policy studies. Much of the science involved in this topic is cutting-edge, so quite a bit of the reading will be from scientific journals. Users can follow links to a PDF syllabus and assignments
West Coast Field Guide of the National Marine Sanctuaries
Our five West Coast national marine sanctuaries encompass nearly 12,000 square miles of ocean, which includes hundreds of miles of dramatic coastline. Teeming with life and filled with history, they offer countless opportunities for exploration, recreation and contemplation. This guide will introduce you to the natural and cultural wonders of your national marine sanctuaries. Whether you're traveling on foot or bicycle, by car or by boat, above water or diving below, it can lead you to new disco
