In Science, Web 2.0 on October 7, 2008 at 3:40 pm

This is Cornell University’s DISCOVER OUR EARTH educational web pages. Here you will find a wide range of information related to the Earth sciences, accompanied by images, graphs, maps, and movies. In addition, you will find two Java-based, interactive data analysis and mapping tools that will allow customized access to a large variety of Earth science data sets that are used by research scientists.

The Teachers section provides teachers with background information about selected Earth science topics, and suggest a number of student activities and exercises that can be employed in classroom settings.

The Students section provides background information for the QUEST data sets and includes a series of activities that we hope will help you to discover some pretty interesting things about the Earth.
