Earth and Environmental Studies Scope

Responsible Organization
This collection of annotated URLs is housed at Wesleyan University.  Suzanne O'Connell, Associate Professor of Earth & Environmental Sciences, is the editor of the collection.
Purpose
The Collection is used in support of undergraduate education, both as a resource that faculty point students to directly, and as a faculty resource to manage links that they choose to use in a wide variety of Earth and Environmental Science courses.  Topics covered include Atmospheric Science, Environmental Science, Geology, Geophysics, Hydrology, Physical Geography and Physical Oceanography.
Collection Policy
All URLs are annotated both by the team of collectors, and by a science librarian. Links are checked automatically by a link checker on a regular basis to ensure that the materials pointed to are readily available. The collection contains links to materials from a broad range of environmental topics.
