Year of Science Question of the Month: What Information Could You Use?

For each month in 2009, the Year of Science — we will pose a question related to science. Please let us know your thoughts as comments, and feel free to respond to earlier comments, or post new ideas.

The Year of Science theme for October is Geosciences and Planet Earth.

Geoscientists study the composition, structure, and other physical aspects of the Earth. An environmental atlas is a product of geosciences.

What would you like to see in an Environmental Atlas about a place that you are familiar with?
