1-Component Seismogram: Building Responds to P, S, Surface Waves
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This animation illustrates how seismic waves travel through the earth to a single seismic station. Scale and movement of the seismic station are greatly exaggerated to depict the relative motion recorded by the seismogram as P, S, and surface waves arrive.

AMS/COMET/MSC Mountain Weather Workshop, August 2008, Whistler, BC
Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating
0.0 stars

In August 2008, the "Mountain Weather Workshop: Bridging the Gap Between Research and Forecasting" was held in Whistler, BC, Canada. It was sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, UCAR/COMET, and the Meteorological Service of Canada. The workshop brought together researchers, faculty, students, and operational forecasters. Its primary goals were to help provide a better understanding of the state of the science of mountain meteorology from both a research and an operational perspective, and to discuss ways of improving interaction between the research and forecasting communities. The workshop consisted of lectures by distinguished speakers covering numerous topics related to weather in complex terrain. This webcast collection contains recordings of the presentations from the workshop.

Activity #1: Should We Build On the Estuary?
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity, students will work in collaborative groups to develop an advertisement for a political candidate in support of one side of an issue - should we build low-cost housing on part of the land presently occupied by an estuary? Each group will decide which side they want to support - either for or against building the housing - and write an ad that will be run in a local paper, or that will be viewed on local TV, to support their argument.

Activity: Marginal Analysis - Would You Swim There?
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

In this simulation activity, students play the roles of community members wrestling with the problem of cleaning up a polluted pond on their common property. They quickly discover that because of their different values and interests, the important question is not whether to clean up the pond, but how much clean-up they are willing to pay for.
