The IRIS Earthquake Browser (IEB) combines the DMC's large database of earthquakes with the popular Google Maps web interface. The IEB is useful both educationally and as a research tool. With the IEB you can quickly find earthquakes in any region of the globe and then import this information into the GEON Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) where the hypocenters may be visualized in three dimensions. The ... Full description.

This interactive data set allows students to get a feel for why Antarctica is known as the windiest, coldest, and driest continent. It allows users to select and view weather reports (January 1 - September 30, 2000) for 22 Antarctic locations. A brief overview gives directions for how to view the Automatic Weather Station (AWS) reports. For each AWS, students can see monthly averages or select a specific ... Full description.

This interactive slide show explains deep sea vents. One frame shows the location of known vents and where other vents are expected to be found. Other frames have information about the methods and materials used to discover the vents. The final frame is a three-dimensional visualization that represents temperature data collected by scientists while surveying the Juan de Fuca ridge in the northern ... Full description.

Randy Davis is a marine biologist who made a major contribution to the study of Weddell seals in Antarctica. Weddell seals spend about 90 percent of their time submerged, making them a tricky animal to study. Davis developed a special camera to study the seals. This in-depth profile takes a look at Weddell seals in Antarctica and of how scientists monitor them. In the question and answer profile Randy ... Full description.

This site provides plans and instructions for the construction of a handheld seismometer, which is designed to illustrate concepts of seismometry (sensing and recording the vibration or shaking of the ground generated by propagating seismic waves) and to be used for educational demonstrations and activities in seismology. It is designed to be as visual and inexpensive as possible to best meet these ... Full description.

In this activity, students will construct a device to measure slope (clinometer), use it to measure a series of slopes in their area, and relate the concept to physical structures around them. Clinometers will be constructed using the material and instructions provided with the activity. Working in groups, the students will measure three slopes they select themselves and calculate the result in both ... Full description.

Students use wood blocks and model boats to investigate how the shape of an object determines the friction it encounters as it is drawn through a towing tank. They learn the advantages of streamlining and increased waterline length and observe that the shape of an object affects its stability. Students are also introduced to the terms power, turbulence, hydrodynamics, work, and boat design, and explore ... Full description.
