109 is a visual arts and science collaborative project which aims to explore and reflect upon the diversity of elements that comprise matter in as unique and innovative manner as possible. 109 aims to produce a new and vibrant visual assessment of the startling diversity of material that constitutes the world in which we live, not simply by rendering images of the respective elements but also by investigating the manner in which they affect our daily lives in largely unseen and often unexpected ways. The site contains an interactive periodic table. Clicking on any element in the table brings up a web page with practical, historical, and physical information and animations relating to that element. The site also has a section entitled Periodic Landscapes which contains computer generated landscape views and models based on various patterns and relationships within the periodic table. The site also includes a brief history of the periodic table, free e-postcards, and more. (less)

This map shows estimated Modified Mercalli Intensity (MMI) values for the City of San Francisco and the eight counties of the Greater Bay Area, in a scenario based on the 1906 earthquake along the San Andreas fault. The 430 kilometers of fault rupture included several segments during one massive earthquake. Links are supplied to more detailed maps of the cities of Rohnert Park, Pittsburg, Antioch, San Francisco, and Palo Alto. (less)

This lesson uses interactive diagrams of ground shaking from the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake to teach students about the mechanics involved in the rupture of a fault and the propagation of seismic waves as an earthquake progresses. They will understand that earthquakes begin at a point; that a long section of a fault can rupture during an earthquake; that the earth shakes in all different directions and modes; and that the intensity of shaking depends on the amount of energy released by the earthquake, distance from the fault, and the type of soil or rock beneath the surface. Links are provided to additional lesson plans and information, and to the complete movie of shaking intensity from which the diagrams were made. (less)

This web page covers the progress of the early 1960 Kapoho eruption of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, and the damage it caused. The eruption caused havoc in lower Puna, an idyllic rural paradise until the lava fountains and flows covered farm land and villages including Kapoho Village and parts of Koa`e Village. During this time, the volcano's summit deflated and eventually collapsed. This page is part of a web series on major Kilauea eruptions. The user can view a series of maps for mid- to late January 1960, showing lava coverage, faults, and lava barriers. A memorial poem for Kapoho village is included. Other links include a photo gallery of volcanoes, and a resource on how volcanoes work. (less)

This web page describes the lahars that swept down the Drift River Valley during the 1989-90 eruption of Redoubt Volcano, Alaska, and the testing of a new experimental detection and warning system designed to track lahars and debris flows and to give warning to people downstream. In this case, an oil-storage facility in the Cook Inlet area was at risk. The seismometers used (acoustic-flow monitors) were sensitive to ground vibration at relatively high frequencies. On April 6, 1990 the system did detect and track lahars moving down a valley in real time. The amplitude and ground velocity data are diagrammed. (less)

The 1-D Hydrogen Atom

This module presents the problem of determining the most likely position, or ... (more)

This module presents the problem of determining the most likely position, or orbital, of an electron around a hydrogen atom. The mechanics of quantum particles are determined by a partial differential equation known as Schrödinger's wave equation. This sets up an eigenvalue problem that limits the possible energies of the electron. The computational solution of Schrödinger's equation for hydrogen is typically done via separation of variables, in which the radial solution is separated from the angular solution, in effect reducing the problem to 1 dimension and allowing for standard numerical integration techniques to be applied. The angular solution of Schrödinger's equation for the hydrogen atom can be expressed in terms of the spherical harmonics. Once the solution is obtained, a variety of computational techniques can be used to visualize the orbitals for different energies. The importance of matching the types of boundary conditions to the problem will be demonstrated in the module, as well as limitations of the numerical techniques used. (less)

The representation depicts an object moving along a "track" marked in .5 meter intervals. As the object moves, displacement-time, velocity-time, and acceleration-time graphs record the motion in real time. The user may select various types of motion to be depicted, as well as edit a velocity-time graph and have the resulting motion depicted. As the object moves, color coded vectors display its displacement, velocity and acceleration. (less)

Members of the Editorial Board nominated as signaling breakthroughs insights gained from the “mega”—large-scale systems analyses—and the “micro”—protein structures—along with new findings in metabolism and genetics. In addition, research studies that may lead to new therapeutic avenues for cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease were selected as breakthroughs, along with the identification of unexpected heterogeneity of innate immune cells.
