This web page contains an index of the elements hydrogen through uranium. The index links to an individual page for each element which describes its detection limits, detection complications, and geochemical applications as a pathfinder or as an aid to geologic mapping. The page was designed to enable explorationists to make the best use of the analyses in a multi-element package like those offered ... Full description.

This Why Files short article discusses some new research on Yellowstone Caldera, a giant volcanic hotspot in Wyoming. Rock has been remelted inside the caldera. Using highly sensitive techniques to extract data from almost microscopic zircon crystals, two geologists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that over the past 2 million years, the giant Yellowstone volcano erupted at 700,000-year ...

This activity will help students to have a better understanding of the basic principles used to determine the age of rocks and fossils. It consists of several parts: to have students determine relative age of a geologically complex area, to familiarize students with the concept of half-life in radioactive decay, to have students see that individual runs of statistical processes are less predictable ...

This site examines the variability of volcanic environments and the physical and chemical controls on eruption dynamics. Environments of volcanism are discussed in terms of plate tectonic theory and include spreading center, subduction zone, and interplate volcanism along with a detailed discussion of the Earth's structure and internal heat. Physical and chemical controls of eruption dynamics include ... Full description.
