This virtual field trip provides an overview of the regional geology of the Lake Baikal area of southern Russia. Satellite imagery and diagrams accompanied by written narrative and thought questions guide students through the process of inferring how geologic movements (faulting) in the area might have been responsible for the formation of the lake. The field trip also provides reinforcement for the ... Full description.
