Encyclopedia of Earth

The world's experts on the environment of Earth, and the interaction 
between society and the natural spheres of the Earth, are forming to 
produce a single comprehensive and definitive electronic encyclopedia 
about the Earth. The Encyclopedia of Earth (EoE) will be free to the 
public and free of advertising.

We seek all qualified editors and authors to collaboratively develop:

A free, fully searchable, trusted source of articles about the Earth
A to Z coverage of topics describing the environment of Earth that 
span the natural, physical, and social sciences, the arts and 
humanities, and the professional disciplines
An information resource that will be useful to students, educators, 
scholars, professionals, decision-makers, as well as to the general 
An authoring site that combines the authority of peer review with the 
power of Web-based collaboration
A public reference site that is updated every 15 minutes

Editors:  Professor Cutler J. Cleveland of Boston University, 
Editor-in-Chief of the award-winning Encyclopedia of Energy (Elsevier 
Science), is the Editor-in-Chief of the Encyclopedia of Earth.  A 
distinguished International Advisory Board  provides editorial 
oversight (see below).

Publisher:  The Encyclopedia is one component of the Earth Portal 
(http://earthportal.net/), the world's first comprehensive resource 
for timely, objective, science-based information about the Earth and 
environmental change.  It is published by the Environmental 
Information Coalition, National Council for Science and the 
Environment (http://www.ncseonline.org).

Scope:  The scope of the Encyclopedia is the environment of the Earth 
broadly defined, with particular emphasis on the interaction between 
society and the natural spheres of the Earth.  See the taxonomy and 
topic areas at http://earthportal.net/EP/eoe/eoetopics/.
