Different species within an ecosystem have different functions that help cycle energy from the Sun—the source of nearly all energy that is critical to life on Earth—through it. Some species are producers, which convert sunlight into chemical energy through photosynthesis. Others are consumers, which feed on producers (and other consumers). These species can be further organized into groups or levels called trophic levels. Organisms at higher trophic levels feed on those at lower levels. Simple models called food chains depict one possible path along which energy moves through an ecosystem—as from producer A to consumer B to consumer C.

To facilitate this, the viewer can operate in one of four modes: To switch modes, use the 'Surface Geology', '3D Models', 'Borehole Scans' and 'Earthquake Timeline' buttons located under the banner. Surface Geology mode In this mode, the viewer displays either bedrock geology, superficial deposits or a combined map showing both bedrock geology and the overlying superficial deposits (the default). Click on the map to bring up an information window giving details of the geology at that location. Click on the geology key button to view a key of the currently visible geology.
