How do canyons form?

I guess you are talking about subaerial (as opposed to submarine) canyons, and are mostly thinking of numerical (as opposed to physical) models. I expect there are numerical models suitable for ...

Open-source earth model for climate change

NOAA-GDFL model system for CMIP6 The Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GDFL) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) uses an coupled open source modeling system for their ...

Are there natural-forcings climate projections over the 21st century?

You’re right that there were no future natural forcings experiments defined in the CMIP5 protocol. The reason being simply that the modeling groups thought that other experiments were more deserving ...

Simulating rainy weather

The problem with a statistical model is the reliance on dynamical model input, plus the requirement of climatology. A statistical model will also only give data for a solitary point, not an area. The ...

Speed of tectonic plate movement

You will want to look at the GPlates program and its references to where it gets its data from. It is probably the most widely used repository to show plate motion information for the current time as ...

Speed of tectonic plate movement

Check out the USGS seismic data maps for each area of interest. For example, http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/tsunami/samoa09/ gives you the relative speed and direction of the Pacific Plate relative to ...

Energy Density of Porous Rocks

Eureka! I and my prof figured it out. We found something interesting - that the energy density actually depends on a number of internal variables, namely, the displacements of the outer and inner ...

Free software for simulating the dispersion of air pollution

In addition to those listed in @f.thorpe's comment (I want to at least point to him to give credit for his choices, which are my first choices too), some other readily available models include: ALOHA ...

How do canyons form?

Not sure about a model you can play with, but there are some very interesting videos of models here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=landscape+erosion+model

Different atmospheric models available for personal usage?

I think there's stuff out there that you can use. The key is searching for "intermediate complexity models", or "toy atmosphere models" (where toy is science jargon for simple model that does things ...

Different atmospheric models available for personal usage?

Unfortunately, I don't think such a numerical model exists that would be suitable for high school students' understanding. The simplest climate model around is a zero-dimensional (energy balance) ...
