Data Links for the Earth and Space Sciences (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)

Roberta Johnson, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research

This section of the Windows to the Universe web site provides a clearinghouse of data on the web about weather, earth science, space science, planetary science, and astrophysics. Windows to the Universe is a user-friendly learning system pertaining to the Earth and Space sciences. The objective of this project is to develop an innovative and engaging web site that spans the Earth and Space sciences and includes a rich array of documents, including images, movies, animations, and data sets that explore the Earth and Space sciences and the historical and cultural ties between science, exploration and the human experience.
