This site presents an account of a research cruise to investigate how the food webs in different oceanic habitats vary. The scientists wanted to see ocean life in its natural environment and conduct experiments that would not be possible in the laboratory. They looked specifically at three types of ocean habitat: the open ocean, the continental shelf, and an upwelling area. The researchers were hoping ... Full description.

Students can learn how an earth scientist studies volcanic rocks by first visiting volcanoes to get a closer look and to collect rock samples, and by recreating the conditions of a magma chamber in the lab. The gas in a bottle of soda is used as an analogy to explain why some eruptions are explosive. The scientist starts by collecting pumice, a light rock filled with holes like a sponge, because it ...
