Visitors to this site can view satellite imagery and read an account of how remote sensing was employed to evaluate the extent of flooding and sediment load in rivers on the coastal plain of North Carolina as a result of Hurricane Floyd in September, 1999. This feature is part of NASA's Earth Observatory, a publication that focuses on Earth's climate and environmental change. Full description.

Deserts are classified by their location and dominant weather pattern into several types: trade wind, midlatitude, rain shadow, coastal, monsoon, or polar deserts. Former desert areas presently in nonarid environments are paleodeserts, and extraterrestrial deserts exist on other planets. This site, produced by the U.S. Geological Survey, describes each type of desert using text and photographs. Full description.

The most profound deformational event involving the interaction of lithospheric plates is a collision between continents; for example, the collision of the Indian continent with the Eurasian continent, which began in the Eocene. This continuing collision has produced intracontinental thrust sheets responsible for the highest mountains in the world. Mount Everest, the Annapurna Range, and the rest ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
Appalachian Mountain landforms clearly demonstrate the relation of plate tectonics and structure to geomorphology. The folded rocks record the convergence of two continental plates in Pennsylvanian/Permian time. This page uses text, maps, and remotely sensed imagery to explain the relationship between plate tectonics, geologic structures, and the resulting landforms. It is part of an out-of-print ...

The mental picture of the Appalachian Mountains most of us have is that of long linear ridges and valleys that form a belt some 25 to 100 km wide through Pennsylvania/Virginia/West Virginia and the Carolinas. With relief of 300 to 1000 m or more, these ridges stand out as distinct mountains. This page describes the general geomorphology and geology of the Appalachian Mountains with the use of text ...

Studies of the chronology of martian meteorites can distinguish various events in the history of the meteorites and give ground truth to Martian geology. This article discusses the use of radiogenic isotope dating to distinguish impact ages, establish exposure ages, define ejection times of meteorites from Mars, and establish terrestrial ages, which begin with the arrival of the meteorites on Earth. ...

This site consists of a digital total sediment thickness map and database for the world's oceans and marginal seas. The data are derived from previously published maps, ocean drilling results (Ocean Drilling Program and Deep Sea Drilling Project), and seismic reflection profiles (National Geophysical Data Center archives and Geological/Geophysical Atlas of the Pacific). Features include a JPEG image ... Full description.
