COURSE SUPPORTIVE MATERIAL
Geologylink: A public forum for all matters geological. This area is open to students, university instructors, teachers, professional geologists, amateurs, and anyone else who seeks insight into the world’s daily geological rumblings.
EarthNet: EarthNet is a comprehensive collection of known teaching resources for teachers and students of all levels - elementary, junior and senior high school. The site also provides an on-line forum for teachers of the earth sciences to exchange teaching ideas and techniques.
Western Region Coastal and Marine Geology Team: We are designing this site to accommodate visitors with a wide range of educational backgrounds, from kids in elementary school to adults with little or no background in geology to professionals in geology and other earth sciences.
Ask-A-Geologist: Do you have a question about volcanoes, earthquakes, mountains, rocks, maps, ground water, lakes, or rivers?
Global Volcanism Program: The Global Volcanism Program (GVP) seeks better understanding of all volcanoes through documenting their eruptions--small as well as large--during the past 10,000 years. Our retrospective effort to document Earth's volcanic eruptions of the last 10,000 years has led to development of comprehensive computer databases and an archive of relevant maps, photos, and documents.
Volcanic Homepage: The volcanic homepage is an attempt to create a useful tool for volcanologists on the Internet. It is meant to be a source of information, archived material, new ideas and practical computer models to simulate eruptions. It is thus, a good "jumping off" station for those searching the net for information on eruptions.
NASA EOS IDS Volcanology Team: Welcome to the EOS IDS Volcanology Home Page. We are providing information about the project activities of the NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) Interdisciplinary Science (IDS) Investigation Volcanology Team. The title of our investigation is: A Global Assessment of Active Volcanism, Volcanic Hazards, and Volcanic Inputs to the Atmosphere from the Earth Observing System.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (HVNP) is an unparalleled experience in geological grandeur.
MTU Volcanoes Page: A primary focus of volcanology is to provide scientific and educational information that can lead to hazard mitigation. Michigan Tech's Volcanoes Page aims to provide information about volcanoes to the public. Amongst these pages you will find information about current global volcanic activity, research in remote sensing of volcanoes and their eruptive products, hazard mitigation, "Decade Volcanoes", links to government agencies and research institutions, and even some volcano humor.
Cascades Volcanology Observatory: Cascades Volcano Observatory (CVO) strives to serve the public interest by helping people to live knowledgeably and safely with volcanoes and other natural hazards including earthquakes, landslides, and debris flows, in the western United States and elsewhere in the world. CVO also studies the impact of natural processes on our environment, including the effects of volcanic gases on the atmosphere, increased sediment transport on streams and life forms that depend on them, and various other geologic or hydrologic processes on the landscape.
Global Earthquake Response Center: This site has been developed to bring you the latest in earthquake information, detection, reporting and news from around the world.
Preparing for Natural Disasters: Disasters take many forms. They're caused by gale force winds, sudden floods, releases of deadly chemicals, fire, ice, even upheavals of the earth itself. When disaster strikes, the best protection is knowing what to do.Find out more about disasters and steps you can take to prepare.
Worldwide Earthquake Locator: The WorldWide Earthquake Locator was developed in the Department of Geography at the University of Edinburgh as an example of a real-time Geographical Information System, which makes use the internet. The Locator accesses data at the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) in Golden, Colorado. Every time the Locator is accessed it retrieves data about recent earthquakes and thus information is available on any earthquake within hours of it taking place.
USGS: The mission of the USGS is to provide geologic, topographic, and hydrologic information that contributes to the wise management of the earth's natural resources and that promotes the health, safety, and well-being of the people. This information consists of maps, databases, and descriptions and analyses of the water, energy, and mineral resources, land surface, underlying geologic structure, natural hazards, and dynamic processes of the earth.
Color Relief Map of the United States: This site contains color shaded relief maps of the U.S. Currently two complete maps are available. The original map is version 1.0 and shows coastlines, boundaries, and rivers. Elevation is shown by color bands with the topography shaded within each band.Version 2.0 uses a continuous color shading and has more subdued colors. Coastlines and boundaries are also more subdued. Rivers are not shown on version 2.0. Each map consists of 60 GIF images that cover most of the continental U.S. Both maps show an amazing amount of detail, showing the geomorphology of the U.S. as seldom ever seen.
Volcano World: VolcanoWorld is a huge World Wide
Web site providing accurate and interesting information about
volcanoes to kids, teachers, parents, geologists, tourists,
reporters and anyone else who visits.
