  • Multimedia Physics Studio (Link)
    These multimedia animations help you visualize and understand major physics concepts. The animations cover common physics principles discussed in a first year physics course.
  • Physics Tutorial (Link)
    Learn basic physics concepts through these tutorials written especially for high school students. Check Your Understanding quizzes for each lesson provide an opportunity to assess your mastery of the material.
  • Higgs Field (Link)
    Nobel Prize winning physicist Leon Lederman was asked for his prediction of the next revolutionary discovery in physics. He says that in six or seven years, everyone will be buzzing about the "Higgs Particle."
  • Visual Physics (Link)
    Learn about specific topics in physics, run interactive simulations, and participate in basic, yet challenging quizzes. Be sure to check out their links to more applet sites in their "Others" section.
  • Virtual Physics Laboratory (Link)
    Simulation can help us visualize the physics model. You will find several hundreds of physics related java simulations on this web site.
  • physics.org (Link)
    Great resources and a search all built into one site dedicated to physics.
  • Physics Web (Link)

  • Global warming in the twenty-first century: An alternative scenario (Link)
    A common view is that the current global warming rate will continue or accelerate. But we argue that rapid warming in recent decades has been driven mainly by non-CO2 greenhouse gases (GHGs), such as chlorofluorocarbons, CH4, and N2O, not by the products of fossil fuel burning, CO2 and aerosols, the positive and negative climate forcings of which are partially offsetting.
