GEO. Make-contact Resources

The Internet is about communication. The links on these pages all provide the opportunity to contact or work with people directly. You can make contact with other students and teachers or experts in many different scientific fields in a variety of ways. You can discuss earth science issues using E-mail or special newsgroups, or you can take part in a wide variety of projects going on throughout the world, or merely observe from the sidelines.

The links are divided into two groups:

Usenet newsgroups and listservs- some earth science related newsgroups and listservs useful at highschool level.
Make-contact links- take part in joint projects, or speak to top scientists. Links classified using the Dewey Decimal System.
