View Resource Starting Point: Teaching Entry Level Geoscience

Starting Point, presented by the Science Education Research Center at Carleton College, is designed for faculty and graduate students who teach undergraduate entry-level geoscience courses. Each section "describes a teaching method, why/when it is useful, how it can be implemented, and a set of examples spanning the Earth system that can be used in your class." Here, visitors will find...

View Resource Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM)-Exploring Clouds at the Edge of Space

The Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) "satellite mission will explore Polar Mesospheric Clouds (PMCs), also called noctilucent clouds, to find out why they form and why they are changing." The website illustrates this NASA project's scientific goals, six objectives, and importance. Users can find a list of publications and links to related news stories and articles about the project....

View Resource Earth Observations from Space

Lecturer Kimberly Strong of the University of Toronto has posted these pages giving course notes, problem sets, and solutions (.pdf). The problem sets are printer-ready. The course deals with topics such as satellite orbits, radiative transfer, and remote sounding. This is a good resource for a college student seeking practice problems.

View Resource Cloud Physics: The Basics

This website from the Oklahoma Weather Modification Program encourages students to initiate a debate on the controversy surrounding the issue of inducing or enhancing precipitation. The exercise describes the two basic tenets of cloud seeding: the Static Phase Hypothesis and the Dynamic Phase Hypothesis. Also provided are links to a weather and climate glossary and further information about...
