This module from the Mars Exploration Curriculum revolves around the question of whether there is water on Mars. By experimenting with water as it changes state and investigating some effects of air pressure on water's boiling temperature, students not only learn core ideas in physical science but can deduce the water situation on Mars by applying those concepts. They use evidence from their work ... Full description.

This collection includes QuickTime, MPEG-1, and GIF animations and interactive images of Martian exploration and geology. These visualizations illustrate Mars' surface geology and historical and current water presence and display information from the Spirit, Opportunity, Pathfinder, and Sojourner rovers and landers. Many of the visualizations have long download times, but are well worth your patience. ... Full description.

This article is a Why Files report on the increase in "natural" disasters from floods, probably the most destructive type of natural disaster. The article notes that in constant dollars, the cost in 1998 alone exceeded the economic toll of the entire decade of the 1980s. Evidence is cited that inundations reflect human action rather than simply rainfall amounts. The report covers: furious floods (including ... Full description.

In this site, Martin Chaplin has brought together a selection of ideas concerning the complex behavior of water in hopes of encouraging both the understanding of water and further work. Some of the many ideas presented are: the structure of water, water anomalies, hydrogen bonding, the phase diagram of water, and water hydration. Full description.
