This set of lecture notes discusses the occurrence and tectonic settings of igneous rocks near convergent plate margins. A discussion of petrography includes major element composition, calc-alkaline trends in ternary diagrams, trace element variations, isotopes to distinguish magma sources, and the origin of igneous rocks at convergent margins. The lecture notes include helpful illustrations, maps ... Full description.

This site explains what can be learned from an ice core. Scientists collect ice cores by driving a hollow tube deep into the ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland (and in glaciers elsewhere). The cylinders of ancient ice that they retrieve provide a detailed record of what was happening in the world over the past several ice ages. Each layer of ice in a core corresponds to a single year - or sometimes ... Full description.

No study of Maine weather would be complete without analysis of the year of 1816 - the year with no summer in an area from western Pennsylvania and New York, up through Quebec and across to Maine and the Canadian maritimes. In this five-unit lesson, students will investigate the causes and effects of the Fabled Maine Winter by exploring a variety of data sources. They will locate, graph, and analyze ...

This interactive site uses illustrations and photographs along with text to explain the movement of tectonic plates and the result of this movement on the surface of the Earth. There is a detailed discussion of the movement at each of the four types of plate boundaries: divergent, convergent, transform, and plate boundary zones. Both lateral and vertical movements are depicted by maps and diagrams ... Full description.

This report contains true stories that illustrate how to survive (and how not to survive) a tsunami. It is meant for people who live, work, or play along coasts that tsunamis may strike. The stories are personal accounts selected from interviews with people who survived a Pacific Ocean tsunami generated by the magnitude 9.5 earthquake that occurred along the coast of Chile on May 22, 1960. Important ... Full description.

Plate tectonics is a relatively new scientific concept that has revolutionized our understanding of the dynamic planet upon which we live. This site explains that the theory has unified the study of the Earth by drawing together many branches of the earth sciences, from paleontology (the study of fossils) to seismology (the study of earthquakes). It has provided explanations to questions that scientists ... Full description.

This lesson explores the realm and limits of science. It engages students to give examples of topics that can be studied by science and those that cannot. It also takes a look at descriptive terms which reflect the true nature of modern science and those which do not, especially those which do not fit the popular perceptions of science.

This activity has students read and answer questions based upon the article 'The plate tectonic story: a scientific jigsaw.' The article starts with the continental drift theory of Alfred Wegener and adds the evidence from the seafloor to arrive at plate tectonics. It concludes with remarks about mantle dynamics and the future ability to predict earthquakes. Full description.
