Check out this powerpoint slide show by Joe Reese at Edinboro University, titled Earth’s Dynamic Surface as Viewed From Space: Using Space Shuttle and International Space Station photographs to observe earth system interactions and environmental changes. WARNING: This file is very large (62 slides over 19MB) and so may take time to download or crash your computer if you are on a slower connection. We also have it in two equal parts, which may be easier to download. Click here for part one, and here for part two.

This Earth Science Sites of the Week archive site, by Dr. Mark Francek, is a huge source of web links for everything from imagery, to information, to teaching tips and lesson plans. You can also sign up to get his weekly e-mail highlighing new Earth Science web resources.
