The EET is a collection of step-by-step examples, called chapters, about the use of Earth system science resources in an educational context for the educational community. The resources include datasets, analysis and visualization tools, and other educational products. Each chapter features one specific resource. The chapters provide the non-expert teacher/educator with enough experience and in-depth knowledge of the resource to be able to use it in other contexts, and to help their students use the resource to explore and investigate issues in Earth system science. The purpose of the Earth Exploration Toolbook is to support the use of scientific datasets, tools, and other products developed and archived for the scientific community by the broader educational community.

Collection is intended for: Primary (K-2), Intermediate (3-5), Middle (6-8), High (9-12), College (13-14)
