This guide provides educators with information on the classroom use of buoy data from the Global Drifter Program. This data is produced by an array of over 1000 drifting buoys, monitored by satellite, that make measurements of sea surface temperature (SST) and surface velocity. It is used to track ocean currents and measure properties such as sea surface temperature, salinity, wind speed, and atmospheric ... Full description.

Step-by-step instructions walk users through working with data from a seismic wave model in a freely available GIS (geographic information system) program, ESRI's ArcVoyager SE. Users generate and examine maps and produce graphs to explore variations in seismic wave velocities at depths of 28 and 100 km below Earth's surface. By examining and analyzing GIS-ready data, users visualize density changes ... Full description.

This overview of how microfossils are used in the exploration for oil uses both drawings and photomicrographs of microfossils to illustrate the types of fossils that are employed in the search for oil. There are also diagrams to indicate how the identification of the strata by microfossil content is then used to locate the petroleum. Active links and additional references are included for further ... Full description.
