How do we come to understand the relationships between the vast number of subsystems in our ecosystem? What must be done to ensure their sustainability… and our own? The National Science Foundation’s Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability (SEES) project seeks the answers to these questions. Here are links to their six-part series covering topics from the safe exploitation of the Marcellus Shale to snow-capped mountains to the depths of our oceans. The articles are short, and reading them all leaves one astounded at just how complex our interactions are … and how vast the challenges are we face.   Part 1: Can Marcellus Shale Gas Development and Healthy Waterways Sustainably Coexist?
