See how the movement of the earth's crust can be a shattering experience.

Graphing Atmospheric Ozone
Visit the Exploratorium's Ozone graphing activity to use actual satellite data in your own "ozone hole" investigations.

Air Pressure
The force exerted on you and things around you by the weight of tiny particles of air (air molecules) is called air pressure. Although air molecules are invisible, they still have weight and take up space. Air pressure makes it possible to fly in airplanes and keeps our bodies from exploding! Find out how air pressure affects you and why it's important.

Earth Science Careers
There are many kinds of jobs that experts in Earth Science do. From park ranger to engineer, find out how you can make use of your knowledge about the Earth.

El Nino
El Nino is caused by warm surface water flowing from the western pacific towards South America. This phenomenon can cause severe weather, flooding and high tides on the west coast of North and South America. Find out how El Nino affects you and why it's important.

Tropical Twisters
Hurricanes are what scientists call "strong Tropical Cyclones". Tropical Cyclones are formed when large areas of the ocean become heated and the air pressure over that area drops, this in turn causes thunderstorms and strong surface winds. Find out about how hurricanes work and what they do.

Name the EOS AM-1 Satellite
This was your chance to name a NASA satellite. When the results of the contest are known, they will be posted here.
