This photographic and descriptive record describes a 12-day field trip to the Skaergaard intrusion of east Greenland. This intrusion is a classic geologic locality, where a large basaltic body of magma cooled and crystallized in the shallow crust. It has layering and other structures that are among the world's best examples of magma chamber dynamic processes. The area also contains several glaciers ... Full description.

This three part activity has students set up experiments to help them better understand the atmospheric portion of the carbon cycle. From this activity, they will be able to explain the concept of sources and sinks as they relate to carbon dioxide, the use of indicator solution bromothymol blue (BTB) to reveal the presence of carbon dioxide, and the qualitative differences between animal and fossil ...

This resource uses text and animation to depict the various processes that produce caves. For example, microbes feeding on the deadly gas hydrogen sulfide long ago excreted sulfuric acid that helped carve out Lechuguilla, Carlsbad. Geologists and microbiologists working in a still-growing Mexican cave provided the extraordinary evidence needed to convince skeptics. Other ways that caves form include ... Full description.

This article, from Earth: Inside and Out, takes a look at the widespread influence of the Nobel Prize-winning chemist Harold C. Urey. It covers his discovery of deuterium and the large-scale process he devised for obtaining water with high proportions of this isotope. The role of Urey as director of the Atomic Bomb Project at Columbia University, along with his contributions to the atom bomb and the ... Full description.

In this activity, students will differentiate between requirements for life in extreme environments such as hydrothermal vents and other environments and will use soft candy as a model to create a visual image of chemicals involved in autotrophic nutrition. As they review the biochemistry of hydrothermal vents, they will discover what chemicals are used by autotrophs in extreme environments in the ... Full description.

These are the teaching notes for a case study in which students are presented with data on a particular lake that they must synthesize in order to determine the cause of an event that occurred in 1986 in Cameroon, Africa. The case centers on Cameroon's Lake Nyos, a volcanic lake which released a large quantity of carbon dioxide gas, killing over 1700 people, livestock, and wildlife in the area. The ...

These resources were developed during a seagoing pilot teacher workshop sponsored by the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP). During the cruise, teachers were mentored and taught by IODP scientists and by shipboard technical staff. Educational materials include a library of classroom activities, data sets, links, downloadable resources, and recommended publications for such topics as plate tectonics, ... Full description.

Since landing on Mars in January 2004, Spirit and Opportunity, the Mars Exploration Rovers, have helped scientists learn an amazing amount about the red planet. The sophisticated rovers far exceeded expectations with the geological clues they have dug up about the planet's past. In this video tour of the rover landing sites, the mission's principal science investigator, Steve Squyres, describes some ... Full description.

This video tracks formation of snowflakes from their origins in bits of dust in clouds that become droplets of water falling to Earth. When the droplets cool, six crystal faces form because water molecules bond in hexagonal networks when they freeze. It explains that ice crystals grow fastest at the corners between the faces, fostering development of the six branches that exist in most snowflakes. ... Full description.
