“Earth Gate” provides an interdisciplinary portal to earth science research at UCSB. Funded by Martin Moskovits, Dean of Mathematical, Life and Physical Sciences in 2002, the site is designed to enable researchers in any given field in any particular department to see what other departments are doing in the same area of interest. Earth Gate also features a weekly environmental news map that provides short descriptions of major earth science events occurring around the world. The site was designed by Eric Ederer (ex Geography Receptionist, now a graduate student in Music), and it is currently maintained by our Geography Student Assistant Frank Garcia.
