The Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) collection of 
the National Science Digital Library (NSDL, http://www.nsdl.org) will be a 
broad collection of educational resources that will help students, 
teachers and citizens to improve their understanding of climate science. 
Each resource in the collection will be linked to a specific essential 
principle of climate science.

We are seeking nominations of resources appropriate for grades 6-16 to be 
considered for inclusion in the collection 
(http://www.cleanet.org/clean/suggest.html). We welcome suggestions that: 
·       are directly focused on one of the essential principles or 
fundamental concepts of climate science (see 
·       will help someone learn specifically about that essential 
principle or fundamental concept.
Note that general websites addressing many aspects of climate science are 
not as useful as specific activities or resources geared toward a focused 
topic.  At this point resources will be prioritized for review and 
acceptance into the CLEAN collection are activities focused on specific 
essential principles and fundamental concepts.  At a later time we will 
consider other types of resources such as those that address a broad range 
of climate science (e.g. entire courses on climate science) or those that 
can support the learning climate science but are not currently imbedded in 
an educational context to facilitate its effective use (e.g. isolated 

To suggest a resource, please fill out the fields at the following link (
http://www.cleanet.org/clean/suggest.html).  You can also see examples of 
the kinds of resources we are seeking at this web site. Each submission 
will be reviewed both scientifically and pedagogically by a panel as the 
collection is assembled.  The review process and selection criteria will 
be posted on our web site once it is fully established. 
If you have any questions please contact Tamara Ledley (Tamara_Ledley at 
terc.edu) or Mark McCaffrey (Mark.McCaffrey at colorado.edu).  Thank you 
very much for your contribution to our efforts.
