Our Dynamic Planet
Modules: Getting Started, Virtual Plate Tectonics Lecture (30 minute animated plate tectonics video), Geography Game, Profile Game, MAP data display, and Graphics Workshop image editing and printing tool.
Data on MAP: ETOPO5 elevations, seafloor and island ages, earthquakes, volcanoes, oceanic heat flow, volcano and landform images and movies. Detailed DEM data and images are available for selected East Pacific Rise (9N) and Mid-Atlantic Ridge study areas.
Display: Point and click on a scaleable, scrollable world map. Quakes may be plotted in map or section view, heat flow data are accessed by clicking, or as a profile. Images and movies are accessed by clicking. Elevations on an arbitrary student-selected great circle path are plotted on the map, and in a special profile window.
Help functions: Online “Guide”, and special help screens make it extremely easy for students to master. The automatically scored geography and profile games teach students to interpret and visualize the information they see on the screen.
Optional Class Management: There are a number of options for logging student game scores and activities.
