Quality in Environmental Analysis
Although this website by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) does not contain analytical data or methods per se, it is one that contains a complete compendium of links to material on environmental topics under the pervue of USGS. As such, it can serve as a resource and background material for students, faculty or practitioners interested in learning about environmental issues. For example, there is a link to Hg in the environment that discusses the sources, chemical composition and consequence o
Introduction to Capillary Chromatography
This site discusses many of the details in how ro convert a traditional HPLC system into a capillary HPLC system. Included in the discussion is how to use splitting to get to the lower flow rates required and how to pack your own capillary LC columns. There is detailed information on how to go about plumbing these sorts of systems (use of fittings, etc.), which may be valuable to someone who doesn't have that experience. The site also includes links to purchasing the components necessary for per

D-Day Invasion of Europe (2:01)
On June 6, 1944, Allied troops storm the beaches of Normandy in the largest amphibious assault in history. This is a good video that explains what happens on this day and has excellent graphics and clear explanations. A map of the area would be of benefit.
Astronomy: The Discovery that the Universe is Speeding Up
A 3:47 video that shows how astronomers discovered that the universe is speeding up and why this may be important. A good video to show students the importance of astronomy as a subject and some of the mysteries that are yet to be solved such as dark energy.
C21: Physics Teaching for the 21st Century
Physics Teaching for the 21st Century is a resource for teachers who are interested in teaching physics concepts in real world contexts. The great problems of the 20th century were solved by a few incredibly smart people. The great problems of the 21st century will have to be solved by billions of moderately smart people. This is where teachers come in... In this website you will find: * articles that clearly explain the physics concepts in a real world context * take-home experiments that ca
World TB Day Tuberculosis in the 21st Century: Payam Nahid
Payam Nahid, M.D., Associate Professor at the University of California San Francisco, counteracts the stigma of TB as an ancient disease and addresses the reason why the disease is prevalent in the present.
Portugal buys time with bond sale
Debt-laden Portugal raised 1.65 billion euros in a surprisingly strong bond sale but analysts predict its high cost of borrowing will still force it into an international bailout within months.
This site is a wonderful resource for undergraduate researchers and their mentors. Topics covered include research nuts and bolts, funding your science, scientific ethics, lab safety, communicating your science and mentoring issues. The site makes good use of case studies, self-study questions and references on each topic.
All about Electrochemistry
Site contains introductory material in basic electrochemistry. Topics include galvanic cells, electrodes, cell potentials and thermodynamics, Nernst, batteries and fuel cells.
Introduction to Scanning Probe Microscopy
This learning module teaches the principles behind scanning tunneling microscopy and atomic force microscopy. The module includes example applications and ample literature citations.
GC Splitless Injection Animation
This site is one in a series of sites with very good animations related to separations. This animation deals specifically with splitless injection in GC. The animations are short (one to two minutes) and can easily be shown in class as part of a lecture. They are extremely helpful in illustrating key components and concepts of chromatographic systems. Users are encouraged to explore the site and the other brief animations as well. Separate links to other simulations by the same company (TRSL) ar
