Each Chapter Title is a link to a resource that I think is pertinent for the material that will be covered in the chapter. If you only look at one resource per chapter, this is the one that I would recommend.
For each chapter you have the opportunity to view the power point presentations and hear the streaming audio files. You also can download the text of the power point presentations and use them to take notes if you are in the face-to-face section.
For each chapter there are some class notes. These are what I have developed over the years and use as the basis for my lectures.
For each chapter in the text there will be a page of links to selected resources that directly address topics and issues raised in the chapter.
For some chapters there are many resources that could be listed but to do so would be a distraction. Therefore, I have exercised some judgment and limited these resources to 3 to 5 that we feel are pertinent. This is not to say that I have necessarily selected the best. In fact, I urge you to contact us with suggestions of resources that you have found to be particularly worthwhile.
In addition to topical resources, there are some general resources that may help you with the course. These include:
"We continuously upgrade this glossary by adding links to illustrations and descriptive text. Browse to see what has changed since your last visit."
More than 70 departments across the United States and Canada have developed Internet-based course resources for courses in Physical Geology. Feel free to visit these sites, read their materials and see if you can find something that will help you with a particular topic or concept.
There are thousands of resources on the Internet that you would wade through. These resources are periodically checked and new resouces are added on a regular basis.
Links to these course resources will appear at the bottom of each chapter page so that you can locate them easily.
A Virtual Field Trip is suggested for each chapter. These were selected to highlight some aspect of the chapter. These are not substitutes for looking at the Earth and its materials but many of these trips will be to places that you are unlikely to have an opportunity to visit on your own or as part of a tour.
