The articles in this set are extremely diverse, with articles covering soil, fisheries, forests, aluminum, the Industrial Revolution, the U.S. Department of the Interior, the hydrologic cycle, glass, and placer mineral deposits. Top resources—mineral based, biologically based, and energy related (such as oil and tar sands)—are covered, as well as ecological resources such as Earth’s atmosphere and its biodiversity, core nations from Argentina to Zimbabwe, government laws and international conventions, milestone historical events, and energy resources from biofuels to coal to hydropower to wind and nuclear power. At the end of Volume 4 are several appendixes: an alphabetical table of the elements, the Periodic Table of Elements, a timeline, a glossary, a general bibliography, and a list of Websites. Of particular note are the detailed tables of resources for both mineral groups and countries, derived from the public-domain data of the U.S. Geological Survey, Energy Information Administration, and CIA in their latest iteration.
