Want to find out how global warming might affect the climate of your state? Or how many earthquakes rattled Earth today? Try this handy roundup of earth science and physical geography links. Mark Francek of Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant began compiling the list in 1997 to give his students a single source of high-quality sites. Francek organized the more than 700 annotated links in the order that the topics are normally covered in introductory earth science classes, and he adds three or four new sites a week. Among the scores of categories are climate and weather, glaciers, plate tectonics and earthquakes, oceanography, water pollution, mapping, vegetation distribution, and energy.∼Franc1m/homepage.htm
