The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has recently updated its Education Resources website, and there are some fine changes worth nothing. One in particular is the updated section on climate. First-time visitors will note that the materials here are divided into five sections, which include Real World Data and Background Information. Educators will find that the homepage contains a great introduction to the operations and processes of the carbon cycle, and it’s a great stand-alone resource for students new to the field. Moving along, the Lessons and Activities area includes six different resources, including Cycling Carbon Lab and Finding Carbon Sinks. Finally, visitors shouldn’t miss the Career Profiles area which may serve to inspire young people to join the ranks of persons working as fuel scientists and geologists. [KMG]
