Here is a cool site with graphical learning resources. Kind of like flash cards. For me, it's an awesome way to learn.
Here is one on the layers of the Armosphere
And here is one on some basic global weather circulation patterns.
Also, I will add in Earthquake Resources as time
Historical SunSpot Records, with zoom feature
stock here -- the next step is going to require some additional technology. Plots using Excel are great, quick, informative, but we need to go 3D, and 3D plotting on Globe. I'll work on this as time allows. Link below take you to the graphic to the right.

List of Solar Cycles
This is intended to be a list of resources, if you want to do your own research, or at least see where the data comes from.
There are 5 Top Sources for Climate Data
- GISS Goddard Institute for Space Studies--Columbia University, NYC, NY (completely not liberal, rest assured!
- NCDC National Climatic Data Center Asheville North Carolina
- HadCRUT - (UK) Hadley Center plus Climatic Research Unit
- RSS (NOAA) Remote Sensing Systems, Satellite Data TIROS-N Interpreted by Dr Carl Mears.
- UAH University of Alabama at Huntsville

GISS has this at their site, saying things can be summed up in 1 sentence. I am aghast that our "best and brightest parrot this information without even a qualification. The "establishment" is entrenched in our systems, particularly governmental systems, which has flowed into academia and other Non-Governmental-Organizations NGOs.
In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released yet another sobering report about the planetary disruption happening because of all the carbon human activity puts into the atmosphere."The key thing to remember from this report is that it's clear that the best time to have reduced emissions was 25 years ago," @ClimateofGavin of @NASAGoddard/@GISS tells @WmBrangham. "But the second best to reduce emissions is right now." pic.twitter.com/ndMIzRSS0t— PBS NewsHour (@NewsHour) October 8, 2018
Earthquake Resources (Includes Vulcanism)
My go to site for daily Earthquake (EQ) data, and for historical research is the USGS. They are great but not perfect, and limiting data searches to 20,000 objects in this day and age where I have 96Gbyte on my PHONE!
Slab2 -- New Software with 3D modeling of subduction zones, likely spots for big earthquakes.
I have tried various EQ alert via email, and they have failed miserably. Heading to Hawaii, on Oahu I know I have 20 minutes lead time to save my life should the Hilina Slump do it's slump and generate a 1000' tsunami. Not that I lose sleep over it, BUT we are in an unprecedented era, of both pole shift and solar minimum, at least unprecedented in well documented history.
So to have a reliable and timely EQ notification system was a desire. The "Disaster Prediction App" fit the bill nicely. Also not perfect, and wish it had more features like ability to restricts alerts at night (sleeping time) to only the most critical, like a plus 8.0 EQ or a Solar Kill Shot in which you would have limited time to secure your favorite electronics into Faraday Cages.
Here is that app, it costs $3 per year.
I prefer, It's the Sun, Silly

Hawaii Magma Chambers / Plumbing System
This article claims the Kilauea Plumbing System is well understood, but typical of most journalism,
they miss all the most important questions, and provide little detail of said knowledge. Like a 3D map would be really cool, so I guess I will have to make my own.
stock here -- interesting that one day after I published my proof of hypothesis of Galactic Cosmic Ray "Nucleation" of Volcanic "Magma Chambers", a number of scientific papers were presenting Magma theories.
