The Geography Department at Bridgewater State University is proud to offer Project EarthView.
This blog gives students who use EarthView a place to post follow-up questions
and to find other cool geo-education resources. The blog has plenty of geography-education resources for grown-ups, too!
EarthView participants often hear about the Ring of Fire, referring to the 25,000-mile-long corridor of volcanic and tectonic activity surrounding the Pacific Ocean. This week, both the terrestrial Ring and a celestial Ring have been in the news. The aptly named Fuego volcano erupted near Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, and a rare annular eclipse was visible from eastern Asia through the western United States.
For maps showing the path of every eclipse from 1901 to 2100, see the NASA Eclipse page. For current information about volcanoes within the United States and its territories, see the USGS Volcanoes page.
