Exploring Our Dynamic Planet consists of interactive tools, curriculum, and background materials that enable students to better visualize geophysical and geological processes and structures. A classroom module explores plate tectonics using geodesy results from GPS to observe and measure crustal motion. Tools include Jules Verne Voyager, Jr., which allows students to choose from a variety of base ... Full description.

This is a brief review of the role of polar reversals in the development of the Theory of Plate Tectonics from the old continental drift concept of Alfred Wegener. It describes the physical difference between the continents and the ocean floor and also the surprising order of the magnetic bands on the ocean floor and how this led to the idea of sea-floor spreading as postulated by Fred Vines and Drummond ...

On the Pacific Northwest an oceanic tectonic plate (Juan de Fuca) is being pulled and driven (subducted) beneath the North American continental plate. Earthquakes generated along that fault may produce local tsunamis. Local tsunamis are those generated by earthquakes near the coast. This site provides links to external webpages describing the physics behind a tsunami. Resources featured in the links ... Full description.

In this activity, students create a model of sea floor spreading using two sheets of white paper and a metric ruler. The paper strips are pulled through a slit representing a mid-ocean ridge and divergent plate boundary. The model mimics how molten material rises to the surface and then spreads out in both directions. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA SCI Files: ...

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.

The most profound deformational event involving the interaction of lithospheric plates is a collision between continents; for example, the collision of the Indian continent with the Eurasian continent, which began in the Eocene. This continuing collision has produced intracontinental thrust sheets responsible for the highest mountains in the world. Mount Everest, the Annapurna Range, and the rest ... Full description.

Unit from Smithsonian multidisciplinary ocean curriculum. Lesson plan focuses on ocean bottom features including continental shelf, deep ocean plain, and mid-ocean ridges. Students study the discovery and mapping of seafloor features, learn to read seafloor maps, then create a map of Atlantic seafloor features. Unit includes: background essay; teacher instructions; maps and forms for student activity; ... Full description.

This site contains information about the general model geologists have developed to explain how most mountain ranges form. This model suggests that mountain building involves three stages, which are accumulation of sediments, an orogenic period of rock deformation and crustal uplift, and a period of crustal uplift caused by isostatic rebound and block-faulting. The later two stages of this model involve ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of how geologists determine rates of sea floor spreading between two tectonic plates. Using a strip map of the North Atlantic seafloor, they will measure distances and note the ages of the strips of seafloor basalt. They will also gain experience applying some basic, useful mathematical concepts such as the calculation and use of velocities and ... Full description.

Classroom activities based on how scientists study active volcanoes on the deep ocean floor. Activities include: locating an earthquake epicenter, recording geological and biological information during an ocean floor traverse, creating cross-section profiles of the ocean floor, and graphing seafloor data. Resources include videos and teacher guides. Full description.
