Satellite Observations of Forest Fires

The Ocean Remote Sensing Group of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory has made available a series of maps of some of the fifteen major wildfires that were burning Wednesday across 264,794 acres in six Western states--Oregon, California, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado. The images are not intended as a working fire detection resource, but are offered as interesting...
Chemicool Periodic Table

The Chemicool Periodic Table is a simple yet elegant site that allows users to click on their element of choice, or type in its name or symbol. Element names are color coded (solid, liquid, gas, as well as synthetic or naturally occurring) and information is provided in ten categories including general (atomic number and weight), states, energies, appearance, reactions, and abundance, to name a...
AgEcon Search: Research in Agricultural Economics

Agricultural Economics is not just about the economics of cows. It is a multi-disciplinary field that includes development economics, natural resource and environmental economics, and global markets and trade, among others. AgEcon Search, provided through a cooperative effort of the University of Minnesota, the American Agricultural Economics Association, and the US Department of Agriculture...

EurekAlert, a service of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, presents the latest news on research in science, medicine and technology. News releases are submitted by academic institutions, journals, government sources, and non-profit agencies. The site is designed to be used by journalists, research institutions and members of the public. EurekAlert is updated daily and...
The Virtual Museum of Minerals and Molecules

Dr. Phillip Barak, Associate Professor of Soil Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has put together this "web-based focal point and resource for 3-D visualizations of molecules and minerals." A collection of 3-D, interactive models of molecules and minerals, these detailed, color images and animations are designed for instructors and students alike. Visualizations include soil organic...
John Hopkins University: Signals Systems Control

The demonstrations given on this Web site are a collection of Java applets and RealAudio clips that explain many underlying concepts of math and engineering. They were developed at John Hopkins University for a project that attempts to use the technology of the World Wide Web in engineering education. Students, under the supervision of electrical and computer engineering professor Dr. Rugh, have...
Experiments in Electrochemistry

Provided by the Fun Science Gallery, Experiments in Electrochemistry offers both teachers and students documentation for seven simple experiments to investigate conductors, batteries, potentials, and galvanic deposition. Each experiment is accompanied by a list of materials, explanatory text, and at least one figure that facilitates a scientific understanding of the experiment.
JSC Digital Image Collection

This high-quality collection is provided courtesy of NASA's Johnson Space Center, and it contains over 9,000 images. Visitors can get started by looking over the FAQ area, which provides answers to questions like "Where can I et prints and high-resolution scans of this imagery?" and "What is a 'fuzzy match?'" After this, visitors can perform a full-text search across all of the items, or use the...
Online Biology Book

The Online Biology Book was created by Dr. Michael J. Farabee of Estrella Mountain Community College in Arizona. The textbook represents Farabee's many years of teaching freshman biology and offers "introductory hypertext learning modules for a wide variety of biological topics." It is organized into 41 chapters (and a glossary), all of which are revised and updated frequently. Topics include...
Science and Engineering Degrees, by Race/Ethnicity of Recipients: 1989-95

This newly-released report from the National Science Foundation details the progress (measured in terms of college degrees earned) of racial and ethnic minorities in the United States, between 1989 and 1995. The report, which is divided into five sections (Data Highlights, Technical Notes, Statistical Charts, Detailed Statistical Tables, and Classification of Programs), includes color charts,...
