Comment on this resource
This site contains a variety of microstructure projects conducted at the University of Maine. QuickTime movies show the modeled deformation of rocks and the development of microstructures. Examples include the initiation of ductile shear zones, the evolution of a simple shear zone, the effects of mica caps, and grain-size reduction. Other projects include 3D reconstructions, concave microfolds, spiral-shaped ... Full description.

This site contains 15 time-lapse QuickTime movies that show the experimental deformation behavior of octachloropropane. This compound shows similar microstructures to those found in quartzite, and thus is a nice analog for the deformation of rocks. The movies illustrate cataclastic deformation, grain boundary opening, formation of subgrains, subgrain boundary formation and grain boundary migration, ... Full description.

This site presents a series of paleogeographic and plate-tectonic reconstructions that illustrate the broad patterns of the Earth's structural history. Reconstructions of North America, the Mediterranean, Central and Southern Asia, and global views are organized by both geographic region and time period and may be viewed by either category. There is also a Time Slice feature which gives a brief summary ... Full description.

This site contains a collection of photomicrographs and accompanying descriptions of naturally and experimentally deformed rocks. These images illustrate microstructures resulting from a variety of deformation processes that are operative in the crust. Rock types include quartz-rich rocks, feldspar rocks. quartzofeldspathic rocks, pyroxenites, diabases, mantle rocks, and polyphase rocks. Each image ... Full description.

This site provides numerous diagrams, maps, and cross sections of the terranes and tectonic elements of the Canadian Cordillera and northwestern North America. The site also features several abstracts about the source and mineralogy of Cordilleran rocks and whether or not terranes are of a native or exotic origin. Full description.
