The BioEd Online website from the Baylor College of Medicine offers a cornucopia of resources for biology teachers, including slide sets, presentation notes, and podcasts. This particular resource deals with the aftermath of the March 11, 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunamis. Created by Gregory L. Vogt, these instructional materials include information about how satellite images are used by recovery planners to allocate recovery resources in the most effective ways possible. The site includes a slide set of the "before" and "after" situation in Japan, a poster depicting the affects of the earthquake, and links to related news pieces. The site also includes direct links to ten other resources including tsunami imagery from NASA and fact sheets from NOAA's Tsunami Information Center.
