To gather long-term information about the world's oceans and currents, orbiting instruments must take extremely precise measurements of the height of the ocean surface. Ocean surface topography data contains information that has significant practical applications in such areas as the study of worldwide weather and climate patterns, the monitoring of shoreline evolution, and the protection of ocean ...

During most of the last one billion years the globe had no permanent ice. However, sometimes large areas of the globe were covered with vast ice sheets. Users can read and view pictures which help explain what ice ages are, when they occurred, and why they occur. This site, sponsored by the Illinois State Museum, has links to web pages on paleontology of the midwestern United States during the last ... Full description.

The magnetic field of the Earth is contained in a region called the magnetosphere. The magnetosphere prevents most of the particles from the sun, carried in solar wind, from hitting the Earth. This site, produced by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), uses text, scientific illustrations,and remote imagery to explain the occurrence and nature of planetary magnetic fields and ...
