Comment on this resource
Danish seismologist Inge Lehmann used seismic signals to study the thousands of earthquakes that occur every year and offer a brief glimpse of what is happening deep inside the Earth. This article profiles a pioneer among women and scientists. It provides an overview of the P-waves and S-waves found in seismic signals and why they are important to our understanding of the Earth's interior, the educational ... Full description.

This article, from Earth: Inside and Out, takes a look at dendroclimatologists, scientists who study climate changes by examining the growth patterns of old trees. It introduces students to the work of Gordon Jacoby, a dendroclimatologist and co-founder of the Tree Ring Laboratory at Columbia University. The site explains the growth rate of trees and provides a picture of Earth's temperature changes. ... Full description.

This activity uses logarithmic plotting to show the power of a straight line in mathematics, science, and engineering. Students will use the slopes of various curves plotted on log-log graph paper to classify stellar objects as binary stars, supernovae, or active galaxies. The data used in this lesson were obtained from X-ray astronomy satellites. It provides an opportunity for students to apply the ... Full description.

This collection of activities and information teaches students about Gamma ray bursts by having them follow exactly the same procedures used by today's astronomers. Students will review some basic physics concepts about light, learn about redshifted spectra and Hubble's Law, and use them to find out how far away, and how powerful, gamma ray bursts truly are. Students will work with a real optical ... Full description.

This activity introduces students to the properties of electromagnetic radiation in a variety of ways. For example, they put the different types of the electromagnetic radiation on trial, selecting the judge, prosecutor, defense counsel, and jury, and learning about electromagnetic energy by arguing the pros and cons of each wavelength. During this activity, students are introduced to the general ... Full description.

In this activity, students will investigate the occurrence of gas hydrates on the ocean floor. They will discover the importance of carbon, where carbon is stored on Earth, and that the largest reservoir of carbon is gas hydrates. Students will discover that Earth's climate changes, and how the greenhouse effect works. They will also learn about the potential of hydrates as a major new energy resource ... Full description.
