This site provides an in-depth and interactive look at the Wilson Cycle in a nine-stage sequence. The Wilson Cycle explains the opening and closing of ocean basins and how certain landforms result; plate tectonics and the rock cycle play a large part in understanding these events. Boundary types are covered, and a series of cross-sections are given to fully explain the cycle. An interactive self-test ... Full description.

This document describes the nature and properties of the sun, its corona, and the solar wind. Students can read how the sun's energy comes from nuclear fusion and how its uneven rotation and churning of its upper layers produces sunspots. The sun's corona is described, and its anomalously high temperature when compared with deeper regions is pointed out. The site also describes how plasma from the ... Full description.
