This online publication shows how chemists and geologists used analytical chemistry to determine the age of the Earth and to show that an extraterrestrial body collided with the Earth at the end of the Cretaceous period (K-T boundary). There are also chapters on the application of geochemistry to geologic processes (volcanoes, ore deposits, and others), its use in tracking environmental changes in ... Full description.

This National Geographic news article from December 2001 outlines the eruptive progress of Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico. The article discusses the difficulties of evacuating locals during volcanic disasters because of their overall beliefs that the volcano is their "friend." Users can also link to other National Geographic news stories, special news series and the main National Geographic site. Full description.

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 contains three radio broadcasts discussing: the Parkfield, California earthquake of October 2004; the Mount Saint Helens volcano; and the shortage of flu vaccine in 2004. The 15 minute Parkfield broadcast explains how the Parkfield earthquake was the most monitored earthquake in history. Scientists are studying the San Andreas Fault in the area. Data collected from the recent earthquake ... Full description.

This guide instructs teachers in classroom use of the MELTS software package. MELTS is a software package designed to facilitate thermodynamic modeling of phase equilibria in magmatic systems. It is used by scientists to model igneous processes such as the composition of magma melts as pressure and temperature change, or to test scenarios such as how much sulfur a volcano gives off. Teaching topics ... Full description.

This topical directory provides an alternate way to browse United States Geological Survey (USGS) science programs and activities. It is not an exhaustive list of all USGS science topics but provides a categorization using a thesaurus of related terms that will give definitions, links to science content, and a structured approach to discovery. The directory is divided into fourteen major topic headings, ... Full description.

This team-based, interactive educational experience aims to engage students in real-world problem solving. The volcano on the normally tranquil island of Montserrat has come to life. As flaming pebbles and lava begin their devastation, emergency response teams learn that a hurricane is approaching. Using real-time hurricane and seismic data, teams of student specialists assist Mission Control, by ... Full description.
