This virtual field trip to Stone Mountain Georgia includes both a narrative and photographs of such features as flow banding, tourmaline pods, and several types of xenoliths. Intrusive granite and diabase dikes are shown at both the east quarry and old route 78 locations where products of weathering such as saprolite, kaolinite, halloysite, and gibbsite reside. Photographs of an area of the east quarry ... Full description.

In this activity students will use a dilution experiment to understand the concept of part-per-million (ppm) and part-per-billion (ppb) measurements. Through discussion, they will be able to relate these dilutions to concentrations of gases in our atmosphere. As result of this activity, students will come to understand the concept of part-per-million (ppm) and part-per-billion (ppb) measurements, ... Full description.

This site provides background information and a general description of Cyanobacteria, which are both aquatic and photosynthetic. That is, they live in the water and can manufacture their own food. The site explains the importance of these bacteria in the production of oil deposits. More important, however, is the fact that the oxygen atmosphere that we depend on was generated by numerous Cyanobacteria ... Full description.

This atlas provides over 400 full colour photomicrographs of the major ore-forming mineral associations and opaque minerals in non-mineralized rocks. It describes typical examples of each mineral from many classical localities throughout the world. For each association there is a listing of the major (and important minor) primary ore minerals, alteration products and gangue, typical textures, a brief ... Full description.

The aim of this activity is to introduce students to the common elements found in the Earth. Students study, compare and answer questions about graphs showing the elemental composition of the Earth's crust and of the aggregate composition of the compounds found in a typical school prep room. They will find that many of the elements already familiar to them may not be at all common in the Earth's crust ... Full description.
