Phillip Ingram pingram@laurel.ocs.mq.edu.au http://atlas.es.mq.edu.au/users/pingram/pingram.html ===================================================================== There is an increasing amount of geosciences information available on the Internet, and more is becoming available every day. Having the ability to search out this information is probably more useful than a list of Earth Sciences sites. The World Wide Web, with Web browsers such as Mosaic and Netscape, have become the default standard in cruising the internet. The WWW protocol can access other internet protocols such as telnet, ftp and gopher, and implement and access facilities such as mail and UseNet News. What follows are starting points for internet exploration with a Web browser for the Earth Sciences. Included is general Web information, Web Indexes for the Earth Sciences, Searches (Robots, Crawlers, Worms etc), the USGS Web site, and other special Earth Sciences connections and sites of related interest. Part 2 of this FAQ contains resources for software and software sites. Just as the Web has become the default standard for navigating the internet, the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) has become the standard method of specifying a particular object on the internet. A URL has the general form of: protocol://host.domain:port-number/dir/subdir/file where: protocol is the type of server to be accessed, such as http, gopher, telnet, ftp, news; or service to be implemented such as mailto. host.domain is the host servers name and domain. port-number is the port in which the server is configured to listen for requests. If using the protocols default port this entry is not necessary. HTTP servers listen, by default, on port 80, gopher servers on port 70, telnet on port 23. dir/subdir/file is the path and file which is to be accessed. If omitted, the default root entry, if applicable, will be accessed. Modifications of the above are necessary for mailto, news and telnet. Gopher URLs can appear complicated as Hexadecimal equivalents need to be substituted for some Ascii characters. Your web browser needs to be configured to access a News and Mail server for these two functions to work. Examples include: http://host.domain:80/dir/subdir/html-file http://info.cern.ch/default.html gopher://host.domain:70/ gopher://wombat.es.mq.edu.au mailto:someone@their.address mailto:pingram@laurel.ocs.mq.edu.au news:usenet.news.group news:sci.geo.geology ftp://host.domain/dir/file ftp://wuarchive.wustl.edu/mirrors/msdos/graphics/gifkit.zip telnet://login-name@host.domain:23 telnet://mars@mars.ocs.mq.edu.au or telnet://host.domain telnet://laurel.ocs.mq.edu.au Alterations in Dec 1996 and Jan/Feb 1997 ---------------------------------------- - modified the url for Terry Gordon's Teaching Links - added Wuchang Wei's journal page - added Wuchang Wei's Nannofossil Lab page - added Diniele Pinti's On-Line Journal Page - added Crystallography World Wide - removed anon's introduction to the www - modified the entries to the John Butler's Anon web server - added Lisa Tauxe Earth Sciences 10 pages - added The WWW and Mineralogy course page of Phillip Brown - added the Globally Accessible Statistical Procedures site ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 0.

Web Indexes for Earth Sciences Various sites maintain lists of hyperlinks to other servers. These are registers, virtual libraries and meta-indexes. They are good starting points to explore the web on a particular subject. Many html-ised resource guides (see Section 8) can also be considered to be registers. i) The latest on-line version of ORES (B. Thoen & T. Smith) This site is, or will be, one of the most comprehensive on-line documents available for geoscientists. It is very well structured. Each geoscientific field has web pages in each of the following catagories: Mailing Lists, News Groups, Documents and FAQs, Journals and Periodicals, Data and Software, Hypermedia Resources. http://www.gisnet.com/gis/ores/ or http://www.calweb.com/~tcsmith/ores/ The fields covered include: - Geography and GIS http://www.gisnet.com/gis/ores/gis/index.html - Geology (many areas) http://www.calweb.com/~tcsmith/ores/geology/index.html - Oceanography http://www.calweb.com/~tcsmith/ores/ocean/index.html - Weather, meteorology and Climate http://www.gisnet.com/gis/ores/weather/index.html ii) CERN's Virtual Library The CERN organisation is responsible for the Web. They request new servers register with them, and these links form the Virtual Library, which is broken up into catagories. Not all catagories are maintained by CERN. The main index is at: http://www.w3.org/hypertext/DataSources/bySubject/Overview2.html Other links at: - Earth Sciences http://www.geo.ucalgary.ca/VL-EarthSciences.html - Geophysics http://www-crewes.geo.ucalgary.ca/VL-Geophysics.html - Oceanography http://www.mth.uea.ac.uk/ocean/oceanography.html - Remote Sensing http://www.vtt.fi/aut/ava/rs/virtual/ - Crystallography http://www.unige.ch/crystal/crystal-index.html - Environment http://ecosys.drdr.virginia.edu/Environment.html - Cartography http://geog.gmu.edu/gess/jwc/cartogrefs.html iii) The University of Houston Anon Server - for those with an interest in mathematics, computers and Earth Sciences and the publications of Mathematical Geology and Computers in Geosciences http://www.uh.edu/~jbutler/anon/anon.html iv) The Geosciences Link at Einet: http://galaxy.einet.net/galaxy/Science/Geosciences.html v) Russ Jacobson's (Dino Russ fame) Links page vi) Seismosurfing, Surfing the Internet for Seismic Sites: http://www.geophys.washington.edu/seismosurfing.html vii) Prospectings of Geophysics and Tectonophysics maintained by Dr Furuse http://cancer.mss.co.jp/Geophysics/ viii) Mineralogical sites at Clausthal Institute http://www.immr.tu-clausthal.de/ ix) EARTHNet Info Server for Dinosaurs and Vertebrate Paleontology http://jacobson.isgs.uiuc.edu/ x) The Earth Environmental Science Center's Hydrology Related Internet Resources http://terrassa.pnl.gov:2080/EESC/resourcelist/hydrology.html OR http://etd.pnl.gov:2080/hydroweb.html xi) Earth and Environmental Sciences Connections from the USGS http://www.usgs.gov/network/science/earth/index.html xii) Lists maintained by Steven Schimmrich - The Structrural Geology Page http://hercules.geology.uiuc.edu/~schimmri/geology/structure.html xiii) Oceanography links via Scripps Institute of Oceanography Library http://orpheus.ucsd.edu/sio/guide/guides.html xiv) Links to GIS and maps from the Bureau of Land Management, CO http://www.blm.gov/gis/gishome.html xv) GIS Net Sites (ex Frank Smith) http://www.hdm.com/gis3.html xvi) The Norwegian Rockhound's Geology List - over 700 geosciences links http://www.uio.no/~hansjb/link.html xvii) Comprehensive List of Popular Meta-Indexes from Telstra http://www.telstra.com.au/meta/meta.html xviii) The Dewey Subject Catalog http://www.akamail.com/patrick/gnosis/ - Earth Science Section http://www.akamail.com/patrick/gnosis/550.html xix) GeoWeb Geoscience related links by Gareth Mills http://www.pacificnet.net/~gimills/main.html 3c. Gopher Subject Trees Gopher was a protocol used before the Web became popular. Many gopher servers were established, but they are now on the decline.

Searches 5a. WWW Searches (Robots, Worms Crawlers, Spiders etc) ------------------------------------------------------ Web searches seek out web sites, search the contents of the pages for specific data and store the result in a data base. Searches are made of the data base. The information sought and stored varies from search engine, so you may have to try several before finding one that meets your requirements. IMHO Alta Vista and Lycos are hard to beat. i) Alta Vista http://altavista.digital.com/ - Autralian Mirror http://www.altavista.yellowpages.com.au/cgi-bin/telstra? ii) Harvest (look for brokers) http://harvest.cs.colorado.edu/ - Harvest Broker Query Web Home Pages http://town.hall.org/Harvest/brokers/www-home-pages - Interface to the Harvest Server Registry, query by subject http://harvest.cs.colorado.edu/Harvest/brokers/hsr/query.html iii) Lycos - home page http://www.lycos.com/ v) The Web Crawler http://webcrawler.com/ vi) The WWW Worm http://www.cs.colorado.edu/home/mcbryan/WWWW.html vii) The Searchable WWW Catalog http://cuiwww.unige.ch/w3catalog viii) The RBSE URL Search http://rbse.jsc.nasa.gov/eichmann/urlsearch.html xix) The WWW Acronym Server http://curia.ucc.ie/info/net/acronyms/acro.html x) The All In One Search Engine Page This is from Albany Net, maintained by William Cross.
