A short film explaining the Doppler effect in simple, easy to understand terms. Nominated for the SciCast competition.
An explanation of the Doppler effect, which occurs whenever the source of waves (eg sound) is moving with respect to an observer.
Java applet (part of a wider site) which illustrates the Doppler effect for sound, giving the example of a passing ambulance siren.
A short and simple explanation of the Doppler effect.
A good clear explanation of the Doppler Effect with diagrams.

Brilliant animations: an excellent site bringing the maths alive. All D Russell's work is rated most highly by teacher panels.
An explanation of Doppler shift, which occurs when the light emitted by a moving star for example changes wavelength (known as redshift or blueshift).
A program which models the gravitational effects of different bodies in different systems. This program is simple and shows the effect of gravity very well.
