Earth


DESCRIPTION: The fourth of four pages on the Earth (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is a list of links to on-line resources in the study of geography (including cartography, GPS, and polar studies). The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to resources in the earth sciences in general and the solid earth sciences in particular (including geophysics and geology), to resources in the fluid earth sciences (including oceanography, meteorology, and climatology), and to resources in the study of earth history (including plate tectonics, palaeogeography, and palaeoclimatology).

KEYWORDS: cartography; geography; GPS; global positioning system; polar studies; Arctic; Antarctic
