The construction and management of national and ethnic identities among British South Asians: An ide
Through the lens of identity process theory, the present thesis explores: (i) the qualitative nature of British national and ethnic attachments and their respective outcomes for identity processes among British South Asians (BSA); and (ii) the impact of media representations for identification and identity processes. In study I, 20 first generation South Asians (FGSA) were interviewed regarding identity, national and ethnic group memberships and inter-ethnic relations. The results rev
Virtual Lava Tube (Interactive)
Lava tubes are cave formations found where volcanoes generate surface flows in the western United States, Japan, Italy, Australia, Pacific Ocean islands, and other areas. They vary in size and complexity, from short, straight formations to multi-leveled labyrinths that extend for miles. The largest and most extensive lava tubes discovered to date are in Hawaiʻi, where lava flows can travel more than 80 kilometers (50 miles) from their source. This interactive activity, adapted from The Vir
Volcanic Eruptions and Hazards (Interactive)
Volcanic eruptions can drastically alter the geography of a region. Hot, liquid lava flowing downslope can force people living near volcanoes to flee their homes. Even more dangerous, however, are pyroclastic flows and lahars, in which volcanic rock fragments travel in fast-moving clouds and mudslides. This interactive resource adapted from the National Park Service explains why eruptions are explosive or effusive and details the many hazards associated with each type.
Volcanic Features (Interactive)
Most people will never see the eruption of an active volcano. Even so, evidence of these dramatic displays can be found all over the world. In fact, more can be learned about some aspects of volcanic activity by exploring evidence left by past eruptions than by watching an eruption in progress. This interactive resource adapted from the National Park Service explores eight volcanic features and describes how they form.
Volcanoes provide spectacular evidence that we are living on a dynamic planet, where land can be created or destroyed without regard to human structures or civilizations. This interactive resource adapted from the National Park Service provides an introduction to the wonderful diversity of volcanoes, describing how they form and explaining the great variation in their size and shape and in the processes that created them.
Visualizing Topography (Interactive)
Topographic maps display three-dimensional landscapes on two-dimensional surfaces. The concise maps can offer a great deal of spatial information in minimal space. However, it is often difficult for people to interpret the features on a topographic map. This interactive activity adapted from Stephen Reynolds's "Visualizing Topography" Web site offers color-enhanced and three-dimensional visualizations to help interpret two-dimensional topographic maps.
