These scenes show the city of Philadelphia as seen by the Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) instrument. The river running through the city is the Delaware which defines the boundary between New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In the larger city area image, north is approximately up. The river runs south. Just near the top of the image, upstream of the city and where the Delaware River turns west is the New Jersey city of Trenton.

Preparation and Presentation of Biology Laboratory Class Materials Through WebCT
An introduction to optimizing materials for web presentation: postscripting to PDF, animated graphics, still graphics, font type and size. These materials, among others, are used to demonstrate the creation of a WebCT course site. WebCT is a server-based course management software application. Through a very specific (and thoroughly, yet simply explained) set of steps, faculty place html, text files, graphics files, etc. into what is essentially an on-line course. That 'course' allows you to pla
Physicians can easily tell if you are a smoker by how your lungs look. Normal lungs are red or pink and fluid-looking. Smokers have blackened lungs that are drier than normal lungs. Tumors may develop from continued tobacco use-these appear as white masses.
Population Structures and Cohorts
This module provides a gentle introduction to the use of WebCHIP software and census data to investigate basic population issues. In the first part of this module, you will use data from the 1990 U.S. census to create population pyramids for several racial and ethnic groups. These population pyramids provide the ability to view the age and sex structure of a population.
