Earth Exploration Toolbook
The Earth Exploration Toolbook is a collection of computer-based Earth science activities that high school and college teachers can incorporate into their teaching. Each activity, or chapter, introduces one or more data sets and an analysis tool that enables users to explore some aspect of the Earth system. Users can search for chapters by Earth system topic or tool.
Within the context of a case study, each chapter guides users through a step-by-step process in which they access data and use analysis tools to explore real issues and questions in Earth system science. In the course of completing a chapter, users produce and analyze maps, graphs, images, or other data products. The ultimate goal of each activity is to build users' skills and confidence so they can use data to conduct their own investigations of the Earth system.
