In this resource, students will discover that there are notable differences between sea ice and fresh-water ice, such as density. In on segment, students learn that the first sign of freezing on the sea is an oily appearance of the water caused by the formation of needle-like crystals. The site explains the relationship between growth and the rate at which heat flows from the water and that the ice ... Full description.

This map and summary describe the Antarctic Coastal Current, also known as the East Wind Drift Current. It is considered the southernmost current in the world and is the counter-current of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. On average, it flows westward and parallel to the Antarctic coastline, providing an important contribution to the the very active air-sea exchange in this area. Links are provided ...

This site has information about the work of three of the agents of erosion in the Northern Cascade Range. Since much of the range is made up of exotic terrains that probably did not evolve on the same spot on the Earth as the present North Cascades, the geologists confine their view to some time since the earliest Tertiary. Within that time frame, they can speculatively recreate the North Cascade ... Full description.
