Aimed at earth science and environmental science teachers, Earthguide is a collection of links, articles, and other classroom materials amassed by undergrads at the University of California, San Diego. The site highlights news stories on subjects that can kindle students' interest, such as the mammoth solar flares that erupted last month. For a deeper look at some of these subjects, try the backgrounders, including some written by experts, on global warming, diatoms, El Niño, and other topics. Links connect to varied resources such as ocean maps, a gallery of bioluminescent creatures, and a glossary of volcanology terms.
