Comment on this resource
In this lesson, students learn about the structure of the Earth, using a nectarine as a model to represent the crust, mantle and core. The same model can also be used to show how much land on Earth is considered usable. This lesson could be used as an introduction to a unit about the Earth, or the beginning of a series of activites focused on the Earth and environment. Full description.

This collection of animations shows episodic tremor and slip (slow earthquakes) from a subducting plate with locked, slow slip, and no slip zones. The first two show wood blocks being pulled over sandpaper to simulate buildup and release of strain in locked and slow slip zones of a subducting tectonic plate, and to simulate episodic movement of a subducting tectonic plate. Graphs display time versus ... Full description.

This site is the homepage of Alan L. Jones, of the State University of New York at Binghamton. Dr. Jones is interested in most earthquake-related topics, computer graphics, and computers in education. He has created various computer-based visualizations: Seismic/Eruption, Seismic Waves, AmaSeis, and Eqlocate. Seismic/Eruption is a program used to visualize seismicity and volcanic activity in space ... Full description.

This activity teaches students how bathymetric maps (topographic maps of underwater landforms) are made by using sonar. Students use a simulated sonar exercise to map something they cannot see and then see how close they were to the actual shape. They produce a bathymetric map and answer questions about this process.

This letter is part of a series in which a participant in the Teachers Experiencing Antarctica (TEA) program shares her work and discoveries with her friend, a glacial geologist. It discusses the many hazards that researchers need to avoid while working in Antarctica including dehydration, hypothermia, frostbite, sunburn of the eyes, and trench foot. She also describes the massive amount of gear they ... Full description.

This article profiles the work of Elise Knittle, whose research specialty is mineral physics. The essay gives an overview of the core, mantle, and crust of the Earth, including what we know about their physical properties. It explains the work of the author, studying the chemical interactions between the metals that make up the Earth's core and the silicate minerals that compose the mantle. The obstacles ...

This beginning geophysics course is designed for geology majors. It provides a relatively rigorous and homework-intensive overview of the structure and evolution of the Earth and terrestrial planets, at a level higher than a descriptive geology class, but lower than the standard introduction to geophysics for seniors or first year graduate students. Demonstrations are presented with links to a variety ... Full description.

In this activity students discover that earthquakes are among Earth's most spectacular natural phenomena and that in understanding what causes earthquakes we can use earthquake or seismic waves to learn about Earth's interior. Students also learn the other aspects of seismology (the study of earthquakes), which are important parts of any Earth Science program. Students will also learn more about how ... Full description.
