The following list contains links to many of the most interesting and informative Web sites related to topics explored in the chapter. Check them out, but make sure you come back to do more investigating when you're done.
Our Web Resource "Exploring Key Terms" can help you search, too.

Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER)
Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) is an imaging instrument that is flying on Terra, a satellite launched in December 1999 as part of NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS).
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
News and Announcements from this center located in a Maryland suburb outside of Washington, DC. Home to the nation's largest organization of combined scientists and engineers dedicated to learning and sharing their knowledge of Earth, the solar system, and the universe.
TRMM update
Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) update. Results of a recent study funded by NASA and the National Science Foundation offers insight into patterns of rainfall from tropical storms and hurricanes around the world.
Columbia Earthscape
Columbia Earthscape claims to select, gather, edit, and link the widest range of Earth resources available online. In the interface, the four sections of the compass give teachers, students, scientists, and decision makers instant access to a variety of tools needed to understand our planet.
EarthComm is an Earth Science curriculum developed by the American Geological Institute (AGI) and supported by the National Science Foundation and donors of the American Geological Institute Foundation. Through EarthComm, AGI focuses attention on the national deficiency in high school Earth Science education (grades 9-12) and on development of a complete high-school Earth science curriculum.
Earth Online (Wadsworth Publishing)
A comprehensive listing of Internet resources for Earth science from Wadsworth Publishing.
Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)
The Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP Federation) brings together data and information providers from government agencies, universities, nonprofit organizations, and businesses in an effort to make Earth science information available to a broader community. The objective of the Federation is to develop methods that make space-based imagery and related Earth science data easy to preserve, locate, access, and use for all beneficial applications.
Earth Science Picture of the Day
The Earth Science Picture of the Day Web site offers a new image related to Earth science with explanation each day.
Earth Science Resources
The Resources for Earth Science and Geography instruction Central Michigan University Web site contains numerous up-to-date links to credible Earth science sites in many disciplines. A must site to bookmark.
Earth Science Resources on the Internet
An excellent reference from the University of North Carolina listing numerous links and an explanation on how to use the Internet.
Earth Science Week: Home Page
Information about a variety of ways to become actively involved in promoting the geosciences in public settings.
Earth Science World
Earth Science World is the place to explore your interests in the Earth and in science. You can monitor current events, make maps, do activities and puzzles, compile data, collect ideas for Earth Science Week, gather career information, and browse the Book Center. The American Geological Institute is developing this site in cooperation with content partners.
Earth System Science
The goal of this site is to serve as a repository for Earth system science education and research resources—a starting point for your reference as you explore this expanding interdisciplinary field, or a place to look for the latest ESS developments.
Earth System Science Center (Penn State University)
Penn State's Earth System Science Center (ESSC) brings together the Departments of Geosciences, Meteorology, Geography, and Energy, Environmental, and Mineral Economics to search for links between Earth's physical processes and past and future global change. The center coordinates and conducts extensive research related to the global water cycle, the biogeochemical cycles, Earth system history, and human impacts on the Earth system.
EarthTrends (World Resources Institute)
EarthTrends environmental information portal offers timely and accurate global environmental and sustainable development information.
Exploring the Environment
Emphasizing an integrated approach to environmental Earth science through problem-based learning, the Exploring the Environment modules use Earth system science to examine a variety of current topics.
Institute for Computational Earth System Science (ICESS)
The Institute for Computational Earth System Science (ICESS) works to address issues regarding global and regional climate changes by providing data and scientific interpretation through computer science. ICESS hopes to help governmental decision makers use observation and modeling information provided by long-term environmental research. provides access to a vast amount of resources for teaching and learning about Earth system science. K-12 teachers can quickly locate classroom activities through the Teachers' Web Express.
