The Climate TimeLine (CTL) Information Tool summarizes climate history for time spans from 1 year to 100,000 years ago and beyond. The relation between human development, weather, and climate is explored. The CTL explains how past climate is measured, provides basic information on paleoclimatology, and explains the use of paleo proxies. There is a tutorial on drought and how to use the CTL to investigate ... Full description.

This unit introduces students to the general system for mapping the seafloor remotely, since most of the seafloor is deep and not visible from the sea surface. In the first lesson students will model a seafloor with shoeboxes and blocks, and then map the "seafloor" using yakitori skewers or lei needles. Lesson two is a teacher demonstration modeling echolocation. Lesson three allows students to interpret ... Full description.
