Satellite Images of Environmental Changes (Internet)
The U.S. Geological Survey presents a stunning set of before and after Landsat
images (satellite photos using remote-sensing techniques).
Encyclopedia of Global Change (Oxford)
Encompassing tsunamis, elephant conservation, ocean pollution, mining regulation,
and permafrost melt, the 300 authoritative articles in this unique and wide-ranging
encyclopedia investigate all types of phenomena that change life on Earth. The entries
cover a range of general research categories: altered ecosystems, climate change,
food and water supply, population, politics and global change, institutions and
policies, biographies, and case studies.
Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) (Internet)
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ECHO Web site provides integrated compliance and enforcement information
for approximately 800,000 regulated facilities nationwide. The site allows users to find inspection, violation,
enforcement action, informal enforcement action, and penalty information about facilities for the past three years.
Facilities regulated under the following environmental statutes are included: Clean Air Act (CAA) Stationary Source
Program, Clean Water Act (CWA) National Pollutant Elimination Discharge System (NPDES), Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act (RCRA), and Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). Includes the Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) Pollutant
Loading Tool that provides information about pollutants being released into U.S. waterways, and brings together
millions of records and allows for easy searching and mapping of water pollution by local area, watershed, company,
industry sector, and pollutant.
Data Warehouse (Internet)
A single point of access to select U.S. EPA environmental data. This website
provides access to several EPA databases to provide you with information
about environmental activities that may affect air, water, and land anywhere
in the United States.
EROS (Earth Resources Observation
and Science Center) (Internet)
A U.S. Geological Survey data management, systems development, and research field center providing
the United States national archive of remotely sensed images of the Earth's land surface.
on Religion and Ecology at Yale (Internet)
The Forum on Religion and Ecology is the largest international multireligious project
of its kind. With its conferences, publications, and website it is engaged in exploring
religious worldviews, texts, ethics, and practices in order to broaden understanding of
the complex nature of current environmental concerns. The Forum recognizes that religions
need to be in dialogue with other disciplines (e.g., science, economics, education, public
policy) in seeking comprehensive solutions to both global and local environmental problems.
Offers strategies for democratizing the global economy, advancing the
cause of human rights, and challenging the notion that the solutions to
international crises inevitably involve military action.
GreenFILE offers well-researched information covering all aspects of human impact
to the environment. Its collection of scholarly, government and general-interest
titles includes content on global warming, green building, pollution, sustainable
agriculture, renewable energy, recycling, and more. The database provides indexing
and abstracts for more than 384,000 records, as well as Open Access full text for
more than 4,700 records.
of Science and Technical Information (Internet)
Scientific and technical information resources of the Department of Energy's
Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) in broad disciplines
such as physics, chemistry, materials, biology, engineering, energy efficiency,
and other related subject areas. Resources include tools for cross searching
bibliographic citations, full-text technical reports, preprints, and journals
citations residing in multiple databases and Web sites.
Provides access to individual papers presented at conferences worldwide.
A major research aid covering every congress, symposium, exposition, workshop,
and meeting added to The British Library Document Supply Centre's (BLDC)
vast proceedings collection since October 1993.
Provides tables of contents of papers presented at conferences worldwide.
Each record contains a list of the papers presented at each conference.
Like its companion, PapersFirst, ProceedingsFirst provides access to The
British Library Document Supply Centre's vast collection of conference
