Excuse our Dust
We are in transition to the new NESTA website. We appreciate your patience as we go through this change
ESS Common Misconceptions

Plate Tectonics Interactive Tools
Rodinia: rodit='give birth' in Russian
Thought original supercontinent formed present day continents
Model depicted is Li et al. (2008)
Earth through Time
-Evolution caused by landmass
-Where fossils & Rock layers occur
Age of Lithosphere
Interactive study of Ages of Ocean floor, Continental cratons. & plate boundaries for students, using @googleearth
-Discuss model differences w/ students?
-make your own Plate Tectonic Paleo-maps & animations?
Created by @AuScope @Sydney_Science @EarthByteGroup
Create OWN #interactive Plate Tectonics models?
GPlates open-source software manipulation of tectonic reconstructions in geo time & raster data viz by@EarthByteGroup
Global Landscape Evolution Modelling Framework
eSCAPE, open-source global landscape evolution modelling framework, revolutionising our ability to track interactions between deep Earth and surface processes By @salles_tristan
Paper and code available
Plate Movement, 200 mya to Today
FREE Interactive Plate Tectonics for 200 million years from @NOAAeducation & @Scienceona
Speed or slow the process, have student notice plate speed through vectors, age of seafloor, etc
GIS to teach Plate Tectonics
Full lesson and resources on how to integrate digital maps into your classroom
Plate Tectonic Guide
Plate Tectonics—You want Fun??? You want interactive???
@geolsoc Plate Tectonic guide not only is fun & interactive, but ALSO has the most captivating videos & diagrams
Earthquakes & Volcanoes
Interactive Seismic Waves Model
A visualization of earthquake waves traveling:
-through Earth’s interior
-radiating on the surface
-How read through seismographs
-Use real Earthquakes
Eruptions, Earthquakes & Emissions
Volcanoes & Earthquakes happen often, but in specific areas of Earth
Great Interactive Map & globe from
shows data including SO2 emissions archived since 1960
Plate Tectonics Systems
Geode is interactive software that helps explain plate tectonics, volcanism, earthquake etc
High level science broken down easily for every student to understand
Great fun too! @ConcordDotOrg
Do you your students need help understanding Earthquakes?
This Interactive website helps by finding epicenters for historical earthquake using seismographs
Want up-to-date list of earthquakes & volcanoes around the world?
Interactive map makes it easy
Links to @facebook posts; detailed information & Volcano cams!
Real-Time 3D Earthquake monitor for around the globe, absolutely beautiful
