[email protected] Workshops for Science Teachers
May 30, 2022
We are hosting a series of free online (Zoom) workshops to introduce educators to Earth science resources on [email protected] that are focused on the region of the United States where they live.
The next workshop will be on June 1 and will be focused on the Earth science of the southwestern United States.

Here on Earth: Regional Guides to Earth Science
The goal of this part of the [email protected] project is to explain the Earth science of every region of the United States and provide necessary background information. Each region is divided into physiographic provinces: regions that are naturally defined by their modern topography and geologic history. The map below shows the major physiographic regions of the contiguous United States that we are recognizing in [email protected]
Regions of Here on Earth that are currently in development include:
- Western United States, including Alaska
- North-Central United States
- Midwestern United States
- Northeastern United States
Digital Encyclopedia of Earth Science
Free, open-access Earth science textbook. Over the next several years, the Digital Encyclopedia of Earth Science will grow to cover most Earth science topics. Initial subjects covered include big ideas, minerals, fossils, climate, and climate change (links below). "Quick Introductions" provide brief overviews of that will be expanded upon in later Digital Encyclopedia chapters.
Newest chapter: Climate Change Mitigation by Dr. Ingrid Zabel.
