The Earth Exploration Toolbook (EET) provides step-by-step instructions for using Earth science datasets and scientific tools in educational settings. Chapters in the EET walk users through case studies in which they use data and analysis tools to explore important issues and concepts in Earth system science. Clear instructions guide users through the steps to access and analyze data. Screenshots are available to help novice technology users complete detailed operations. Chapters also offer suggestions for further exploration of the data and other ways to use the tool.

Chapters are designed for use by K-12 teachers, undergraduate faculty, and their students. Each chapter features specific datasets and analysis or visualization tools, and provides enough experience and in-depth knowledge of the resource to enable an educator to use it, apply it to other teaching contexts, or help students use the resource to explore and investigate aspects of the Earth system. The purpose of the Earth Exploration Toolbook is to support the use of scientific datasets, data access and analysis tools, and other products by the broader educational community.
