Curran, Mary Carla; Ramsey, Andrée L.; Bower, Amy S. – Science Activities: Projects and Curriculum Ideas in STEM Classrooms, 2021
Oceans play an important role in weather and climate through transfers of heat and moisture to the atmosphere, and by moving heat and climate-relevant molecules like carbon dioxide around the globe. Energy also transfers from the atmosphere to the surface of the ocean, traveling down through the water column creating ocean currents that transport…

Mejía Ávila, Doris; Sánchez Agámez, Carlos; Soto Barrera, Viviana Cecilia – International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, 2021
A pilot test for the design and construction of digital lessons for integrated social science teaching is presented in this study. Combing conventional texts, applications made with Google Earth, and images from the web, three lessons for the sixth grade were created: (1) Evolution of Man, (2) Physical Geography of the Earth, and (3) Pre-Columbian…

Malone, Melanie – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2021
Critical Physical Geography (CPG) emerged as a discipline around 2014 and has since excited many human and physical geographers, as well researchers in political ecology, geomorphology, science and technology, and environmental science whose research, critiques, and methodologies have formed much of the basis of CPG. However, because of its recent…

Goldman, Jesse; McNichols, Andrew; Pipes, Robert – Physics Teacher, 2020
In this paper, we describe a study of cosmic ray muon rates and energies at various elevations on Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii. The study was originally conceived as an extension to the upper-division modern physics laboratory at the University of Hawaii at Hilo and used the TeachSpin Muon Physics apparatus (abbreviated TSMP below) from that…

Gregory, Kenneth J.; Lewin, John – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
Competing influences and pressures on areas of HE and the content of new AL syllabi suggest a need for curriculum reconsideration. We analyse, from institutional website data, the present provision of physical geography in 77 UK institutions providing undergraduate learning in geography. The extent of compulsory modules gives an indication of…

Pili, Unofre B.; Violanda, Renante R. – Physics Education, 2020
The oscillating atmospheric CO[subscript 2] concentrations at Mauna Loa, on the island of Hawaii, Hawaii, United States of America, are Fourier transformed in order to extract the period of oscillations. Also well-known as the Keeling curve, CO[subscript 2] concentrations (in time series) at Mauna Loa oscillate in direct association with seasonal…

Gómez-Gonçalves, Alejandro; Corrochano, Diego; Fuertes-Prieto, Miguel Ángel; Ballegeer, Anne-Marie – Education Sciences, 2020
This paper analyses the conceptions of a group of students about geological time and its relation to physical landscape formation, focusing on the frequency and rate of a number of geological processes that have shaped our planet over time and that are involved in the formation of the current relief. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire…
