press releases from the Climate Change team.
Geology Rocks http://www.geologyrocks.co.uk/tutorials.php
Jon Hill at the University
of Edinburgh and Katie Davis at Bristol University
created this website to provide numerous educational
materials to geology students of all ages. Students and
educators can find many tutorials in sedimentology,
paleontology, geophysics, and more. The website features
fifty-seven geologic-related images as well as a few
The Hurricane Advisories.com Web site contains
information for preparing for hurricane season, along
with detailed climate reports on current hurricanes that
may be bound for coastline areas.
Photographing Central America’s Longest Cave
From National Geographic.com comes the
Inside Chiquibul: Photographing Central America’s
Longest Cave Web site.
Institute of Global Environment
and Society and the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere
The Weather and Climate Data link
features numerous maps and animations of the analyses of
current conditions, weather forecasts, and climate
outlooks for the world. Users can download GrADS, the
interactive tool used to access, manipulate, and
visualize earth science data. Researchers, educators,
and students seeking meteorological information and maps
dealing with topics such as soil moisture, pressure, and
the maximum potential hurricane intensities will want to
visit this website.
JGOFS: Joint Global Ocean Flux
The Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS)
examines the carbon exchange between the atmosphere and
the ocean in order to understand the processes
influencing the fluxes of carbon and associated biogenic
elements and the exchanges among the atmosphere, sea
floor and continental boundaries. The website discusses
JGOFS's aim to achieve the ability to predict human
impacts on climate change on a global scale.

Practical Guide to GPS-UTM
Don Bartlett, in association with National Resources
Canada, has developed an educational instruction manual
addressing many key elements of GPS units.
VDADC: Virtual Domain Application Data Center
This website features the Virtual Domain
Application Data Center (VDADC); a proposed online
database that would provide earth science and remote
sensing professionals access to environmental data sets
and necessary internet tools. Researchers can learn how
VDADC can supplement data centers by holding small, but
valuable, data sets for specific groups. The interactive
prototype available at this website demonstrates access
to remote sensing and other global change data as well
as the usage of visualization and analysis tools.
Woods Hole Oceanographic
Established in 1930,
