Title: Forces of Change
Url: http://forces.si.edu/index.html
Publisher: National Museum of Natural History (U.S.)
Description: This informative website from the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History suggests that "to understand our world, we must understand change." A thoughtful sentiment, and one that explains the site's basic mission quite well. Essentially, the site looks to explore climate change, ecological change, and cultural change. Drawing on a wide range of research, the site looks at how different types of changes are affecting life on earth, and some of the processes covered here include El Nino, volcanic eruptions, and changes in the atmosphere. Visitors can click on sections such as "Arctic" and "Atmosphere" to watch interviews, enjoy interactive features, and read research reports on all of these matters. The site also includes a special "For Educators" area that features everything from printable Arctic bookmarks to tours of prairie ecosystems.
