GEON: The Geosciences Network
Entry ID: GEON
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Geosciences Network (GEON) portal provides access to geoscience data and
tools. The portal accommodates national and international research activities.
Recognizing this potential, the U.S. Geological Survey has joined as a major
partner and has made creation of key GEON databases a priority effort over the
next several years. Via DLESE, GEON will become an important resource for
sharing knowledge about the Earth for a variety of audiences, including K-12
students and teachers.
