Name That Park
In this online interactive, learners are introduced to the basic function of Geographic Information System (GIS) maps in relation to national parks. Recognizable park boundaries are presented and learners are given the option to add layers such as lakes, rivers and visitor centers, until the learner is able to identify the park map from a list of choices.

How Much Water is in that Cloud?
In this activity, learners working in pairs saturate a cotton ball using water drops from an eyedropper to demonstrate the high water capacity of clouds. Learners also compare their estimates to the results of the experiment. Use this activity to explore weather events like thunderstorms and flash flooding. This resource includes facts about the rainiest and driest places in the world as well as flash flood safety rules.

Updrafts in Action
In this weather activity/demonstration, learners watch as a ping pong ball is suspended in a stream of air supplied by a hair dryer. This demonstration of the Bernoulli Principle models how updrafts (wind) supports hail and rain in clouds during storms. The discussion portion of this resource explains the science behind this phenomenon as well as how and why the National Weather Service issues thunderstorm and tornado watches. Thunderstorm safety rules are also included in this resource.

20.102 Macroepidemiology (BE.102) (MIT)
This course presents a challenging multi-dimensional perspective on the causes of human disease and mortality. The course focuses on analyses of major causes of mortality in the US since 1900: cancer, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes, and infectious diseases. Students create analytical models to derive estimates for historically variant population risk factors and physiological rate parameters, and conduct analyses of familial data to separately estimate inherited and enviro

4.2 Capitalism – naturally

Business can learn to integrate ecological thinking into the core of its thinking and become the hub of a sustainable society. This is the claim of the business learns position. As environmentalists have spent over 30 years portraying business as the arch-villain of the piece, this is a grand claim. One of the people who have stated it most clearly is Ray Anderson, head of the US carpet giant Interface (Author(s): The Open University

5.6 Land and water pollution

In this section we will just take a couple of examples that show how easy it is to expose ourselves to long-term damage inadvertently. Pesticides, developed to control insects and other vermin, can increase agricultural productivity. Although pesticides were originally hailed as one of the wonders of modern technology, it was quite quickly discovered that there was a downside to their widespread use. One problem was that of bioaccumulation. Pesticides tended to be stable chemicals and

5.5 Summary of Section 5

  • The phase of a material is characterised by its physical state (e.g. solid, liquid or gas), a distinctive arrangement of the atoms, and its chemical composition.

  • Material properties can change suddenly as the temperature increases or decreases, corresponding to changes of phase and the degree of order associated with the arrangement of atoms.

  • Shape memory alloys are examples of a wide range of useful engineering materials t

5.6.3 Conformation and crystallinity

If there are key connections between the chain configuration and crystallisation, you might also expect some more subtle effects from rotation about chain bonds. After all, polymer chains must be able to twist into the regular conformation demanded for crystal structures (Figure 57(a)). And what influence will rotation have on

5.5.1 Non-uniform mixtures

Moulded rubbers and plastics are compounds of a polymer matrix and a variety of additives. The mixing history of the material before and during the moulding process can have a critical influence upon the final product properties. If mixing is done badly then the microstructure of the moulding can be non-uniform. Lack of uniformity can cause variations of strength and other physical properties within the moulding. The degree of dispersion or distribution of relatively minor quantities of addit

5.4 Dynamic mechanical properties

Viscoelasticity is not experienced just under quasi-static conditions, i.e. when the imposed stresses and strains are constant or change only slowly. Polymers, and particularly rubbers, are often deliberately selected for products which are to be subjected to dynamic mechanical loading. Tyres are an obvious example where the unique high strain elasticity and energy absorbing qualities of rubbers make them the natural choice of material. Stress analysis involves the use of the frequency-depend

5.3.2 Effects of structure on viscoelasticity

If a single measurement of ER(t) is taken at an arbitrary but fixed interval of time, say 10 seconds, then it will vary with temperature in a way rather similar to the viscoelastic master curve. Such a curve for atactic polystyrene is shown in Figure 48, where the various zones of behaviour are identif

4.6 Polymer grades

Polymers synthesised by a variety of routes are available in many grades from the large polymer manufacturing companies. Naturally enough, the grades of bulk tonnage polymers, such as LDPE, PVC, HDPE and PP, run into the hundreds simply because of the multiplicity of different process routes and end functions. So what are the basic differences between grades of just one polymeric material? The most important distinguishing characteristics are structure and molecular mass.
