Global Firms in the Industrializing East
Singapore has transformed itself into an economic powerhouse along the Pacific Rim. In the early 1960s, multinational companies attracted by a highly skilled and cheap labor force turned Singapore into a major manufacturing center. Just a generation later, companies in Singapore delegate labor-intensive work to Malaysia and Indonesia while bringing in new business in research, development, and finance. (27:49)

The experiences of visitors to Hawaii, Malaysia, and Borneo are shaped by the tourist industry. Hawaii has the most mature industry, the product of decades of development that preserved little of its indigenous culture; Malaysia is following a similar path. Borneo is developing "ecotourism," catering to more intrepid travelers. The paradox of tourism offers opportunities for local development yet can destroy native cultures and environments. (27:43)

The Trouble with Topos
Students learn how to identify the major features in a topographical map. They learn that maps come in a variety of forms: city maps, road maps, nautical maps, topographical maps, and many others. Map features reflect the intended use. For example, a state map shows cities, major roads, national parks, county lines, etc. A city map shows streets and major landmarks for that city, such as hospitals and parks. Topographical maps help navigate the wilderness by showing the elevation, mountains, pea
Sliders (for High School)
In this hands-on activity, students learn about two types of friction static and kinetic and the equation that governs them. They also measure the coefficient of static friction and the coefficient of kinetic friction experimentally.
Chlorine Monoxide from new Microwave Limb Sounder on Aura (WMS)
Chlorine monoxide (ClO) in the atmosphere as measured by the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) instrument on NASAs Aura satellite. MLS can simultaneously measure several trace gases and ozone-destroying chemicals in the upper troposphere and photosphere. In this series of animations we present chlorine monoxide (ClO), hydrogen chloride (HCl), nitric acid (HNO3), ozone (O3), water vapor (H2O) and temperature measurements. These are first light data taken when the MLS was operated for the first time. C

Araona Crater (Iturralde Structure)
The Araona Crater (also known as the Iturralde Structure) is a suspected crater from an impactor which struck northern Bolivia approximately 20,000 years ago. The feature is believed to have been caused by a short period comet striking at 70 kilometers per second and splattering into the muddy alluvial flood plain in the Lower Amazon jungle. The impact created a circular depression which is now roughly 8 kilometers across and 3 meters deep. The structure was discovered in 1988 Landsat data, but

AMSR_E Pacific Sea Surface Temperature Data Used to Forecast 2003 Hurricane Season
Researchers and forecasters often study sea surface temperatures for an activity predictions for 2003 in part to changing conditions in the Pacific Ocean, such as the demise of El Nino. This sequence traces the evolution of the warmer-than-normal waters associated with the weak El Nino that developed in the late fall of 2002. By January, the warm conditions began to dissipate. Fewer than normal hurricanes generally form when El Nino is present. Researchers say the Pacific may transition to the c
