Hands-On Meteorology is a collection of interactive concept models and active learning materials for meteorology instruction. The concept models illustrate conceptually difficult processes in atmospheric science. Users change parameters in the concept models and examine the outcomes of such changes. Concept models allow for student note keeping and data export. Active learning exercises are provided ... Full description.

This text discusses differences in ocean tides. Along America's Atlantic Coast, two high and low tides occur daily. Such tides are called semidiurnal. On the north shore of the Gulf of Mexico, the tide is diurnal, meaning that it moves in and out again once a day while in the Pacific Northwest, there are mixed tides, two highs and two lows a day, characterized by significant disparity between successive ...

This site contains information about the San Francisco earthquake of 1989, which lasted only 15 seconds, but caused highways to collapse and buildings to crumble. About ninety people were killed, and more than six billion dollars of property was damaged. Photographs, shaking cartoons and easily accessible text explain the how and why of Earth's earthquakes. Topics include plate movement, types of ... Full description.

This experiment can be completed in a single class period and examines how pressure affects water flow. In small groups, students work with water and a soda bottle, and then relate their findings to pressure in the deep ocean. The printable six-page handout includes a series of inquiry-based questions to get students thinking about pressure, both in the air and under water, illustrated experiment ... Full description.

In this two-part activity, students learn about electromagnetism by constructing electromagnets and observing their behavior. They will discover that there is a close relationship between electricity and magnetism in that moving magnets can induce electric currents and that electric currents can cause magnetism. They also learn that electric current flowing in a wire creates a magnetic field around ... Full description.

In this activity students have the opportunity to build a model of a submersible. Within its clear plastic hull, a balloon will serve as a type of ballast tank. By varying the inflation of this balloon, they will be able to control the buoyancy of the submersible. This activity will offer students a hands-on experience in buoyancy, an observation of a working ballast tank, and an operational definition ... Full description.
