Welcome to the Internet pages of the ESPERE Climate Encyclopaedia!
ESPERE stands for Environmental Science Published for Everybody Round the Earth. It is a pilot project funded by the European Commission which started in January 2003 and will finish at the end of 2004. The aim of our project is to put up-to-date and accurate scientific information on climate in a Climate Encyclopaedia on the web in a form which is understandable by all and useful in school lessons.
The basic idea of ESPERE is not to deliver a completed product, but to develop the website together with pupils and teachers so that it really meets the needs of the community. Your feedback is therefore essential so that this web site can develop and become more and more useful over time.
The School of Environmental Sciences at The University of East Anglia in Norwich, U.K. is the British ESPERE Partner and we are responsible for the Oceans part of the Climate Encyclopaedia. Please send us your comments and we will try to make the site better and more applicable to all of you out there!
We look forward to hearing from you
