The UEM Homepage is an output of the Urban Environmental Management Research Initiative (UEMRI), a grouping of urban planning researchers from around the world. It looks at urban areas as the intersection of natural, built, and socio-economic environments, creating sustainable ecosystems.
GEO-LEO stands for GEO-Library Experts Online. It is the virtual specialised library for geosciences, mining, geography and thematic maps. Students, researchers and other interested people can access both printed as well as computer based informational resources via various search-options.
Provides the data services, tools, and cyberinfrastructure leadership that advance Earth system science, enhance educational opportunities, and broaden participation.
Unidata, funded primarily by the National Science Foundation, is one of eight programs in the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Office of Programs (UOP). UOP units create, conduct, and coordinate projects that strengthen education and research in the atmospheric, oceanic and earth sciences.
Unidata is a diverse community of over 160 institutions vested in the common goal of sharing data, and tools to access and visualize that data. For 20 years Unidata has been providing data, tools, and support to enhance Earth-system education and research. In an era of increasing data complexity, accessibility, and multidisciplinary integration, Unidata provides a rich set of services and tools.
The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) is a leading research institution where more than 200 research scientists seek fundamental knowledge about the origin, evolution and future of the natural world.
PANGAEA is an Open Access library aimed at archiving, publishing and distributing georeferenced data from earth system research. The system guarantees long-term availability of its content through a commitment of the operating institutions.
The Association of American State Geologists (AASG) is an organization of the chief executives of the state geological surveys in 50 states and Puerto Rico. The responsibilities of the various state surveys differ from state to state, depending upon the enabling legislation and the traditions under which the survey evolved. Since 1908, the Association has met regularly to discuss issues of common interest and to initiate united actions when warranted.
The American Geological Institute is a nonprofit federation of 45 geoscientific and professional associations that represents more than 120,000 geologists, geophysicists, and other earth scientists. Founded in 1948, AGI provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in our profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society's use of resources, resilience to natural hazards, and the health of the environment.
The Union advances the Earth and space sciences by catalyzing and supporting the efforts of individual scientists within and outside the membership. As a learned society, the Union serves the public good by fostering quality in the Earth and space sciences and by publicizing the results of research.
The goal of the Web site is to bring together the biogeoscience community, advance awareness of the subject and promote the study of biogeoscience. The National Science Foundation began a new program in Biogeosciences in 2002. Biogeosciences is the study of the fundamental interactions between life and the Earth's atmosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere, and potentially includes such life on other planets.
An internet site for the global research and development community. Within the site are COS Expertise, which gives personal profiles of professional in the research community, and COS Funding Opportunities, a prime source for grant information.
The Society was inaugurated on 13 November 1807 at a dinner at the Freemasons Tavern, which formerly stood at the site of the modern Connaught Rooms, Great Queen Street, Covent Garden. 'That there be forthwith instituted a Geological Society for the purpose of making geologists acquainted with each other, of stimulating their zeal, of inducing them to adopt one nomenclature, of facilitating the communications of new facts and of ascertaining what is known in their science and what remains to be discovered.'"
geotech.org began in 1994 as a Bulletin Board Service to connect oil and gas explorationists with Surface Exploration Technologists for the purpose of educating the oil and gas industry about the benefits of microseep detection. geotech.org initially supported the APGE with webspace, put the first AAPG conference notices online, and supplied online publication listings for the Mississippi Geological Survey.
Established in 1888, The Geological Society of America provides access to elements that are essential to the professional growth of earth scientists at all levels of expertise and from all sectors: academic, government, business, and industry.
With 121 national members, the Union aims to promote development of the earth sciences through the support of broad-based scientific studies relevant to the entire earth-system; to apply the results of these and other studies to preserving Earth's natural environment, using all natural resources wisely and improving the prosperity of nations and the quality of human life; and to strengthen public awareness of geology and advance geological education in the widest sense.
This society is dedicated to the dissemination of scientific information on sedimentology, stratigraphy, paleontology, environmental sciences, marine geology, hydrogeology, and many additional related specialties.
