Earth Sciences - Open Courseware (OCW)

Pages:   > 1   2     3  

Interactive Science Simulations

Colorado University (US), PhET Interactive Simulations

interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena: ongoing effort to provide extensive suite of simulations to improve the way that physics, chemistry, biology, earth science and math are taught and learned

Physics and Chemistry of the Terrestrial Planets

MIT OpenCourseWare (US)

introduces structure, composition, and physical processes governing the terrestrial planets, including their formation and basic orbital properties, plate tectonics, earthquakes, seismic waves, rheology, impact cratering, gravity and magnetic fields, heat flux, thermal structure, mantle convection, deep interiors, planetary magnetism, dynamics

Earth & Environmental Sciences (courses)

Tulane University (US)
  • Natural Disasters - examination of the causes, effects, and options available to mitigate natural disasters, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, subsidence, flooding, severe weather, and meteorite impacts
  • Mineralogy - basic principles behind the arrangement of atoms to form crystal structures, how these atoms are coordinated and bonded and how this is reflected in the external form, chemical composition, and physical properties, how to identify the most common minerals in hand specimen and to identify the common minerals in thin section
  • Petrology - fundamental background in rocks, necessary to understand the Earth, principles behind rock forming processes
