Congratulations on your website. I teach Marine Biology at the Metropolitan
State College of Denver in Colorado, USA and will be recommending the site
to my students. In December this year I intend bringing students to New
Zealand and Fiji for a course entitled South Pacific ecosystems. I have
put together a rough itinerary and currently intend to visit the Goat Island
marine reserve. I would appreciate your permission to put a link to your
site from my personal web page (http://clem.mscd.edu/~ryanp/).
I would also appreciate it if you would consider putting a link to
my website fiordlandunderwater which, until your site got so huge, was
probably the most comprehensive mairne biology site in New Zealand.
You are wlecome ot use any of my images on your site or in your
Best wishes, and congratulations again on a great site.
Hello to Seafriends frorm room 6 at Hukerenui School. we found

Thank you Floor for your email. It is very encouraging.
Its great to know someone else who is involved in work like us.
Your website is fantastic. There is so much information and you
seem to be involved with so much - where do you get the time?! We
currently have a marine exhibition in Cork City (for two weeks), which
my daughter Audrey is running. She is the person involved with the
school visits. I will certainly get her to look at your site when
she gets back as I believe it would be of great benefit to her.
I hope we can keep in touch and I look forward to reading more
of your website, and to future postings.
Best of luck, Regards, Matt.

sorry for my late respond ! meanwhile i have almost studied your website
! my deep respect for your important work ! it´s holistic, land and
sea -soil and water: all belongs together and has influence ... everyone
can understand what you tell, it´s not too sientific, also the illustrations
and pictures are very helpful ! i wish you joy and energy to carry on !!!
today i go to vienna for three days, we have built a group that is
going to work out a concept for permaculture-education in austria, it´s
a challenge but we are very engaged and hopeful ... we also founded
a seed-saving group in tirol lately, so good and necessary things are happening
and developing, -we are on the way !
kind regards, helmut
Hard copies. Wed, 28 Mar 2001 22:55:33 EST
What luck to come across your web! My browser located it by requesting
"facts about soils". We are teaching a variety of natural subjects in our
community, but as you pointed out a good compresensive discussion on soils
is rare. Is it possible to obtain hard copies of some of your materials
including classroom workbooks? I would appreciate any information you might

I was browsing and discovered this site. It makes me very happy to
see this in motion. I love the ocean and everything that lies beneath and
around it! On the eve of Earth Day, I would like to offer my sincere assistance
in any way I can. I live in Wash. State by Puget Sound.
Let me know what is available up here or who to contact. Joyce Murdock

Thanks to Floor Anthoni for the superb treatment of "soil: erosion
and conservation." Your fresh, creative, but scientifically credible handling
of the subject will make good reading for the class I'm teaching on Earth
Systems. I'll have my class of senior citizens (it's a lifelong learning
course) hook onto your web pages. Please accept my highest regards.

the impact energy of a raindrop on bare soil compared to plant foliage
very well. I would happily cite you as the source. Thank you very much.

Dear Sir and Madam,
We are international publishers of English language educational
textbooks for primary, secondary and high school students studying English
as a foreign language. Our textbooks are used in the classrooms in Israel
and several European countries.
Our internet site is being used as an educational tool and integrates
textbook study together with hands-on internet projects for our student
readers. Our site also includes a resource section for use by the teachers.
We believe that the materials on the 'Why are our beaches disappearing'
site will be of great interest to our students and teachers alike.
As such we would like to link our educational activities to your
site and would be grateful for your permission to do so. The reference
to your site will guarantee you prolonged exposure to tens of thousands
Your early reply to our request would be greatly appreciated.
We thank you in advance for your assistance.
Sincerely yours, Ann Shlapobersky Webmaster Eric Cohen Books Ltd. Raanana,

Hi again Floor
I have had a quick look at the soil section. That's a fantastic resource!
Congratulations are due to you for putting it together. I will look in
more detail and comment if necessary. If there is anything specific I can
help you with, please feel free to ask.

Hello Dr. Anthoni,
I came across your web site a while back while I was preparing
a course in coastal geomorphology for the Israel Maritime College. I am
very impressed, not only by the scope of the site, but also by your dedication
Before teaching the course, I had little exposure to the issues
of marine conservation. Today, I find myself more and more drawn to the
sea. Unfortunately, among all our other problems here, we are killing the
only real asset we have. Beaches are being destroyed to make room for marinas
and holiday apartments (mostly built illegally) and the ocean has become
a dumping ground for the military and other industries. Conservationalists
are helpless against the millions of dollars put into these projects, as
is the Ministry of Environment (which is almost non-existent).
While teaching, I tried to put some of the spirit of your site
into the lectures. I hope I succeeded. If there is anything I can do to
help spread the message, please let me know.
Thank you for the inspiration,

Dear Dr Floor and Maria Anthoni,
I am very impressed with your website, so much work... It is obvious
you are passionate about these issues, conservation and education. I have
been to Goat Island many years ago as a kid with a family friend, a man
named "Choat". We called it Jellyfish Island and had the stings to prove
it! . . . . . . . Well, I hope to visit your centre soon, it sounds nice.
Kindest Regards, Nicholas

Just happened to come across your site while searching for some information
on an isotope. I have just started reading your information, but
you have certainly done a nice job on distilling and presenting the periodic
table data. I will be spending some time on your site. Just
wanted to say thanks. John Huseby

Dr J Floor Anthoni,
At our university we have a project to build a knowledge base in marine
technology. The material is to be used by students as exercises or as preparation
to a lecture. I have seen some of your pages on seafriends.org,
and some fit very well into our system. I wonder if it is ok for you that
we use some of the text and pictures(with reference to you) in our system

You provide an excellent description of soil structure that is
enhanced with clear diagrams. As a student, I
found this extremely helpful!

We directed our last year's students to your site as a great
way to get an overview of soil formation and use. Many students missed
out because of no internet access or limited time for access. I would like
to give them a printed copy this year. There will be no editing and
seafriends will be acknowledged as the copyright owners. Do you have
any specific requirements?

I found your web site by chance and mainly the part on the underwater
photography. Your course is very complete on all the aspects. Marvelous.
I developed a web site for the beginner on the underwater photography to
promote its technique. For instance it's in French and in one month in
English ( http://perso.wanadoo.fr/pcourty/ ) I put a link on my website
because your site is wonderful. Thank you and continu

Dear Dr. Anthoni,
My congratulations for your work ... the texts are amazing, and very
good quality. I recommended to all my students. We have some problems in
printing, perhaps you can help. The problem is that some figures, when
they are on the bottom of the page, are cut off. Do you have some
solution? Perhaps you have the archives on pdf? We are trying to print
directly from the navigator.
Thanks, and congratulation again. Valdir Innocentini ,Pesquisador,

Dear Valdir, to my knowledge, all modern browsers have this problem
and only a very old one, originally Netscape Gold, does it correctly.
