International Toxicity Estimates for Risk Database (ITER)
"ITER is a compilation of human health risk values for over 500 chemicals of environmental concern from several health organizations worldwide. The database is the only on-line source of compiled risk values that provides side-by-side comparisons of values. All of the data are presented in a tabular format for ease of comparison and the reasons for differences among the organizations' values are explained."

Salton Sea Database Program (SSDP)
"...an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funded project at the University of Redlands to develop Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and data research technologies to support the effort to save the Salton Sea from ecological collapse. The mission of the SSDP is to establish an on-line data resource clearinghouse and provide ecosystem decision support."

Terra (EOS AM-1)
"...is the flagship of NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS), a major international science program to monitor climate and environmental change. Terra is collecting a new global data set to enable research into the ways that Earth's lands, oceans, atmosphere, ice, radiant energy, and life function as a whole system. In February 2000, Terra reached final orbit and acquired its first images, some of which are now available to the public!"
