Below you find links to a selection of Earth Sciences resources on the web. I welcome any suggestions as to interesting Earth Science links that could be included here.

bullethttp://www.norvol.hi.is/  - This is the web-site of the Nordic Volcanological Centre, University of Iceland. Interesting site on the geology of Iceland, particularly volcanism.
bullethttp://www.jardvis.hi.is - This is a link to the Institute of Earth Sciences, University of Iceland, with information on its activities, Icelandic geology, etc.
bulletUniversity of California, Berkley, Museum of Paleontology - A very good web-site on Earths history. I highly reccommend a visit.
bullet Paleoclimatology Slide Sets  This site is hosted by the National Geophysical Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, and contains good educational materials on climate development through time.
