Module covering Earth's three fluid spheres: oceans, atmosphere and cryosphere (glaciers). An event seen in each sphere illustrates processes and concepts: El Nino events for oceans; thunderstorm formation for atmosphere; and global temperature change impacts on glaciers. Concepts covered include: properties of air, water, ice as fluids; flow of energy and matter between spheres; short and long-term ... Full description.

This site from SERC's Starting Point features Gallery Walk questions about coastlines. The questions explore coastal features, contour maps of former glacial lake shorelines, impacts of the rise and fall of the Great Lakes, how plants, animals, soil and groundwater are effected by natural hazards, zoning plan development, and dam removal. The questions are organized according to the cognitive level ... Full description.

This web article is a March 2000 report from Why Files about the risk of a catastrophic impact from space objects such as asteroids and comets. It cites a presentation at a national scientific meeting, which stated that asteroid impacts over the past 10,000 years had a hand in shaping the climate and the nature of civilization itself. Why Files staff interviewed seven scientists, both pessimists and ... Full description.
