This website, from the 1998 PBS "Savage Earth" series, shows seismic waves from an earthquake that took place in Bolivia in 1994. The animation illustrates the way the earth's surface, core/mantle boundary and inner/outer core boundary reflect and deflect P- and S-waves. Full description.

This site is a joint effort of NOAA Research and the College of Education at the University of South Alabama. The goal of the site is to provide middle school science students and teachers with research and investigation experiences using on-line resources. In this unit students explore what El Nino is, where it is located, how it is created, and weather changes that El Nino causes. Students analyze ... Full description.

With this tool, users can build their own animations from infrared satellite imagery superimposed on a world map. Animations are constructed by selecting year, month, date, and time for the archived images. Users can also adjust the animation length, interval between images, and speed of the animation.

This animated model shows the predicted effects of glacial melting and changes in vegetation patterns in the Blackfoot-Jackson Glacier Basin of Glacier National Park, Montana. The scenario incorporated in the model consists of a predicted exponential rise in atmospheric CO2 concentrations, a 2xCO2 global warming scenario, with a concurrent warming of 2-3 degrees centigrade (4-5 degrees Fahrenheit) ...

In this exercise, students will study the three types of faults, investigate the association between faults and earthquakes, and examine the relationship between earthquakes and plate tectonics. There is a set of animations that illustrate the types of seismic waves, an exercise in which students determine the location of an earthquake epicenter using arrival times of P and S waves, and an exercise ...
