Tundra maps

UCAR - Windows to the Universe

This webpage shows the extent of global tundra on a map of the world. The map is part of the Windows to the Universe, a user-friendly learning system covering the Earth and Space sciences for use by the general public. The goal of the Windows to the Universe project is to build an internet site that 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.

This description of a site outside SERC has not been vetted by SERC staff and may be incomplete or incorrect. If you have information we can use to flesh out or correct this record let us know.

Part of the Starting Point collection. The Starting Point collection includes resources addressing the needs of faculty and graduate students designing, developing, and delivering entry-level undergraduate courses in geoscience.
