This is an activity about using spectrogram plots as an indicator of magnetic activity on Earth. Learners will analyze spectrogram data and compare it to local Kp indices in an attempt to determine global magnetic storminess. This activity uses real data from the THEMIS (Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms) Magnetometer, and requires a computer with Internet access. ... Full description.

This self-paced, interactive tutorial explores how biological activity helps to determine vertical nutrient distributions in the ocean, examines why upwelling boosts marine productivity, and considers how various physical forces interact to determine upwelling. Learners then predict coastal upwelling events based on prevailing physical conditions as identified in remotely-sensed imagery. This resource ... Full description.
