Earth Science: Websites

Using Websites

Websites can be a powerful way to research current developments in your subject, from seeing the websites of current researchers (and their topics of research) to videos that explain how to solve problems (both ethical and mathematical).  Check the box below for examples of different websites that might help you research.

Keep in mind that you'll want to evaluate all information you find carefully.  Need help figuring out how to separate the good from the bad?  Check out our guide to Source Evaluation.
