Global Infrared Cloud Cover, September 2001 (WMS)
This animation is a mosaic of cloud cover data taken by several different satellites in the infrared band. One of the most prominent cloud features during this time was Hurricane Erin near the Atlantic coast of the United States.
South American Cirrus Clouds
Looking through cirrus clouds over part of South America.
Population Density of the World, 1990-2015 (WMS)
This animation shows the population density of the world in the years 1990, 1995, 2000, as well as a projected population density map in 2015. These figures have been adjusted to match United Nations totals. The most dramatic differences in population are not readily visible in this animation because they are located in cities. The maximum population density in 1990 was about 79,000 people per square kilometer, while the estimated maximum population density in 2015 will be about 236,000 people p
Slice through a Houston Storm using TRMM Data
A moving plane slices through cloud data from a storm over Houston revealing a surface of constant precipitation density colored by ground rainfall amounts. Data measured by instruments on TRMM.
"Nuclear Reactor Safety, Spring 2008"
" Problems in nuclear engineering often involve applying knowledge from many disciplines simultaneously in achieving satisfactory solutions. The course will focus on understanding the complete nuclear reactor system including the balance of plant, support systems and resulting interdependencies affecting the overall safety of the plant and regulatory oversight. Both the Seabrook and Pilgrim nuclear plant simulators will be used as part of the educational experience to provide as realistic as pos

Irish unions seek a soft landing to harsh economic measures
Could a consolidated EU financial administration mean an end to draconian bailout repayment terms? Ireland’s Union leader thinks so…
You're the Expert
Student teams learn about and devise technical presentations on four reproductive technology topics pregnancy ultrasound, amniocentesis, in-vitro fertilization or labor anesthetics. Each team acts as a panel of engineers asked to make a presentation to a group of students unfamiliar with the reproductive technology. Each group incorporates non-lecture elements into its presentation for greater effectiveness. As students learn about the technologies, by creating a presentation and listening to ot
Cranial Nerve Exam: Anatomy: Cranial Nerve 11
This nerve is a motor nerve for the sternocleidomastoid and trapezius muscles. The UMN control for the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) is an exception to the rule of the ipsilateral cerebral hemisphere controls the movement of the contralateral side of the body. Because of the crossing then recrossing of the corticobulbar tracts at the high cervical level, the ipsilateral cerebral hemisphere controls the ipsilateral SCM muscle. This makes sense as far as coordinating head movement with body movement i
Cranial Nerve Exam: Anatomy: Cranial Nerve 6
This cranial nerve innervates the lateral rectus for eye abduction. Remember that cranial nerves 3, 4 and 6 must work in concert for conjugate eye movements if they don't then diplopia (double vision) results. The medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF) connects the 6th nerve nucleus to the 3rd nerve nucleus for conjugate movement. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to func
Postural and Kinetic Tremor - Motor Exam - Muscle Strength Sub-exam - Patient 8
This 37-year-old left-handed white male has had tremors beginning in childhood, before he started school. Over the years, the tremors have slowly progressed in both upper extremities. Tremors have spread to affect the right leg. They are more pronounced in the left. Most of the time tremors are increased with anxiety and activity, but are also present at rest. There are no tremors in his feet. Because of the tremors, the patient cannot write, feed himself, use utensils, or even hold a cup. He c

Space Week: Roving Mars, Part 1
With brilliant design and hard work, the Rover engineers create a robotic wonder to explore Mars.
L150 EMA preparation
Staged preparation to Oral EMA to be carried out during a tutorial and then by students on their own. The first stages gradually get the students ready for a discussion. By the time they get to the final stage, the students should be ready to give a presentation.
Moving Social Security Online (Conference) - Session 5 [Audio]
Speaker(s): Mark O'Neill, Jerry Fishenden, Martin Ferguson | LSE Public Policy Group, LSE Moving Social Security Online Conference, Wednesday 29 June 2011. In the present fiscal climate, governments must cut the costs of delivering services at the same time as maintaining quality. They must also cope with the demands of increasing numbers of the unemployed and the aging. A key imperative therefore is to move the bulk of social security processes and transactions online.
