NOAA’s National Geophysical Data Center

Educators in the geophysical sciences will find much to work with on this site created by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration’s National Geophysical Data Center. Utilizing data captured over time by their team of scientific experts, the site includes a climate timeline informational tool which can be used to demonstrate the transformation of the Earth’s climate over the past 100,000 years and a section titled “All About Snow”, which provides answers to questions about snow. The real treats here are the interactive hands-on activities that include an origami balloon of elevations and an even more complex dodecahedron globe that offers a three-dimensional visualization for use by students and teachers. Finally, the “Visualizing Data” area contains a few recent additions that can be used in the classroom, such as several animated dives to the bottom of the Marianas Trench off of the Philippines.
