- The Discover Our Earth project provides a variety of resources designed to help you learn about Earth science topics. The Quick Earth Study Tool (QUEST) is an interface to a variety of data sets that will allow you to explore the solid Earth. This tool reflects our idea that it is much more fun to explore the Earth for yourself than to have someone tell you a bunch of tedious facts. In fact, this is how scientists work anyway, so it's probably the best way to learn science. There are pages for students, teachers and web tools for better understanding the earth.
- Alan Jones' Seismic/Eruption
- A program for the visualization of seismicity and volcanic activity in space and time. The program, which runs under Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP, has an extensive database of events. A number of pre-defined maps are included which illustrate the seismicity in various parts of the earth. Created by Alan Jones.
- Tanya Atwater's Plate Motion Animations Downloads
- Professor Tanya Atwater, plate tectonics pioneer, has created a series of QuickTime plate motion movies that illustrate Pacific-North America plate tectonic history from 85 million years ago to present, plus details of Southern California's evolution.
- Larry Braile's Seismology, geophysics, Earth science education website
- Professor Larry Braile has a compilation of many different earthquake related educational resources. These are available as webpages and can also be downloaded as word files. Many of these activities are highlighted at our teacher workshops.
