View Resource Tracking Global Climate Change: Microfossil Record of the Planetary Heat Pump

This lesson plan integrates physics, biology, and geology to understand planetary processes that contribute to climate change through time. The plan includes a hands-on activity that demonstrates heat transfer as well as uses figures and charts to demonstrate how foraminifera (shelled microorganisms)can be used to interpret past climates.

View Resource Iceland Invents Energy-From-Water Machine

The use of geothermal energy in Iceland is featured in this brief web article. The article discusses an Icelandic team's invention called the "Thermator" that translates the temperature difference between hot and cold water into energy using the thermo-electric effect.

View Resource Thermal Power Plant Micro Module

This learning object discusses and provides animations of the basic processes and components in a thermal power plant. Cycle descriptions and animations include the Carnot cycle, the basic Rankine cycle, and advanced Rankine cycles with reheating and feedwater heating. In addition, a Rankine cycle calculator allows the user to vary several operating parameters and observe the effect on power...

View Resource Computer Animations of Physical Processes

This site contains various applets and animations of physical processes, demonstrating various ideas in waves, optics, mechanics, and thermodynamics. The site also contains information on the theory behind diffraction gratings, and a simulator for ballistic projectiles.

View Resource About Temperature

Beverly Lynds at the Unidata Program Center has made available the About Temperature Web Site. Lynds provided a thorough discussion of temperature along with information about and diagrams of thermometers, heat and thermodymanics, kinetic theory, and radiation temperature. Additionally, she provides links to acknowledgment and external resources for further study.
