Human health and well-being are closely tied to the environment, which provides benefits such as clean water, clean air, and protection from natural hazards.
Chemical and non-chemical stressors can impact the environment’s ability to provide these benefits, also known as ecosystem goods and services.
EnviroAtlas provides geospatial data, easy-to-use tools, and other resources related to ecosystem services, their stressors, and human health.
Contents: volume 1. Geologic history and energy -- volume 2. Climate change -- volume 3. Biodiversity -- volume 4. Ethics -- volume 5. Contaminants.
