National Energy Technology Laboratory

The National Energy Technology Lab supports research on clean uses of fossil fuels, energy efficiency, and fuel cells. Fact sheets, technical reports, and journal publications can be downloaded from this site. This site has some information that would be useful as a reference for community college instructors and students. Nevertheless, the site would probably be more useful for those who have an...
Making Business Sense of Energy Efficiency and Pollution Prevention

This report, written by Miriam Pye, discusses the profitability of energy efficiency and pollution prevention for businesses.  The author highlights how both of these topics are key to sustainable development and industrial ecology.  The paper is available free as a downloaded PDF, however, one must create a free login to access it.
Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Mapping Project

This map, provided by the Alaska Geobotany Center, displays the vegetation and associated characteristics of the polar region.   Information on bioclimatic zones, bedrock, surficial geology, acidity of parent material, soils, hydrology, and remotely-sensed vegetation classification is included in the map.  A link to download a printable version of the map is available on the website, in addition...

ECOLEX provides comprehensive information on international environmental law and national environmental law from various countries. This engine lets you search the database for common laws, treaties, legislation, court decisions, and literature. Users can search by keyword, geographical location, and language, year.

Ionsource is a website that provides access to an index of resources including tutorials, links to downloadable sites, jobs and conference information involving mass spectrometry and biotechnology subjects. Examples of tutorials include lessons on atomic mass and amino acid residue mass.
Daily Weather Maps

This website, from the United States Department of Commerce, provides access to daily weather maps from 2002 to the present. Maps that are available include plotted station observations, maximum and minimum temperatures, winds, and precipitation.  Users can locate past maps and navigate to specific dates by using the drop down menus on the left-hand side of the webpage.
Modeling Subsurface Transport of Petroleum Hydrocarbons

This U.S. Environmental Protection Agency website contains information on the modeling of subsurface transport of petroleum hydrocarbons and other environmental contaminants. Course modules on the fate and transport of contaminants are included. There are also OnSite on-line calculators for site-specific assessment calculations.
Hydrogen Generation From Pasmatron Reformers: A Promising Technology for NOx Adsorber Regeneration and Other Automotive Applications

This 7-page resource focuses on the benefits of using plasma reformers for nitrogen oxide emission reductions. The resource summarizes laboratory and vehicle tests of plasmatrons while attempting to maximize nitrogen oxide reduction and efficient fuel use. The following sections are included: Abstract, Introduction, Plasmatron Technology, Biofuel Reformation, Diesel Reformation,...
Aftertreatment of Diesel Vehicle Emissions Using Compact Plasmatron Fuel Converter-Catalyst Systems

This article, written by Leslie Bromberg, Daniel Ross Cohn, and A. Rabinovich, argues for the use of compact plasmatron fuel converters in diesel engines.  The authors posit that this technology will mitigate the environmental harms caused by diesel engines, stating "Use of compact plasmatron reformers to produce hydrogen-rich gas for the regeneration of NOx absorber/adsorbers and particulate...
