This EET Chapter will introduce you to visualization capabilities available through NASA's Earth Observatory. You'll build several animations of satellite data that illustrate carbon pathways through the Earth system. For instance, you'll build animations of fire images that indicate carbon is being released into the atmosphere. You'll also make animations of plant productivity images that indicate ...

WEB-PHREEQ is a web-based computer application for aqueous geochemical modeling. WEB-PHREEQ was developed for classroom teaching and for routine calculation of the distribution of chemical species in water. Users can calculate the effects of mixing of waters, adding phases to the solution, or changing the solution's temperature, Eh, or pH. The site features an easy to use interface, frequently asked ...

This site hosts a computer application for thermobarometry. The program calculates pressures and temperatures for garnet, cordierite, spinel, sillimanite/kyanite, quartz anhydrous or hydrous pelitic assemblages. The user enters cation values for each mineral, and the model generates pressure vs. temperature graphs or data tables of the calculated isopleths. The program is derived from the shareware ...

This site is a table of crystallography groups. The table is composed of 32 classes of symmetry derived from observations of the external crystal form. From these 32 classes, 230 space groups are distinguishable using x-ray analysis. The site also features 3-D rotating examples of crystalline forms for each symmetry class. The illustrations are helpful for visualizing crystal forms. Full description.
