  • Desert Landforms and Surface Processes in the Mojave National Preserve and Vicinity
    • This website is intended to provide basic geologic information about the origin of landscape features throughout the Mojave National Preserve and surrounding region.
  • The Core Historical Literature of Agriculture
    • The Core Historical Literature of Agriculture (CHLA) is a core electronic collection of agricultural texts published between the early nineteenth century and the middle to late twentieth century. Full-text materials cover agricultural economics, agricultural engineering, animal science, crops and their protection, food science,forestry, human nutrition, rural sociology, and soil science. Scholars have selected the titles in this collection for their historical importance. Their evaluations and 4,500 core titles are detailed in the seven volume series The Literature of the Agricultural Sciences, Wallace C. Olsen, series editor.
  • The International Society for Agricultural Meteorology
    • Agrometeorology investigates adaptation strategies to weather and climate in raising crops, trees, livestock and fish. It studies water, heat, air and related biomass development in the agricultural production environment, including disasters, and their socio-economic consequences for farmers as decision makers. This leads to agrometeorological services for response farming with irrigation scheduling, early warnings, microclimate manipulation and the application of weather and climate forecasts in a changing and increasingly variable climate
  • The Mojave River and Associated Lakes
    • The Mojave River is the largest drainage system in the Mojave Desert. It's modern extent and capacity is only a fraction compared to its extent during the Last Glacial Maximum.
  • Weather Data - Selected Reporting Sites in the Greater Mojave Region
    • The table here provides a summary of selected sites and data from in and around the greater Mojave region that might serve as a proxy for weather conditions in different settings within the national preserve (none of the sites are within the preserve itself).
