This course website for students of structural geology and tectonics was selected as Geoscience Site of the Month in October 1999. It provides much standard course website fare, but is distinguished by several interesting visuals, such as a gallery of structural images, diagrams of fold terminology, a 3-D animated map of fault slip, and an animation of the geometry of stereographic projection.

The Keck Geology Consortium Structural Geology Slide Set was compiled by H. Robert Burger, Smith College with the support of the W. M. Keck Foundation, Los Angeles. The database was developed by the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada. The CD-ROM comprises 100 high resolution photographs of structural features ranging from microscopic to ... Full description.

This web-site contains files showing simple cross sections of one or more states in selected North American orogenies (mountain building events). Major structures, elements, and rock units are shown. The orogenies covered here include the Wopmay, Taconic, Acadian, Alleghanian, Palisades, Antler, Ancestral Rockies, Sonoman, Sevier and Laramide. Full description.

This lesson provides students with information about how islands are formed, including a basic knowledge of plate tectonics. Using the islands of Hawaii as an example, students learn about the earth processes that cause the formation of islands over time, including volcanoes and hot spots. Full description.

Comment on this resource
This demonstration models the manner in which the convection currents in the mantle of the Earth cause movement of the plates. Convection currents in the mantle were thought, for many years, to be solely responsible for plate tectonic movements, with the movement taking rocks down at destructive margins and new rocks forming when plates spread. It is now thought likely that there are three possible ... Full description.

These pages, from PBS Online, demonstrate how plate tectonics affect the Earth's surface. It includes a brief introduction to the four main boundary types (convergent, divergent, collisional, and transform), a series of pages with information about related people and discoveries, such as pioneer geologists Hess, Wegener, and Holmes, and an interactive activity illustrating plate movement.

In this activity, students simulate deformational effects on Earth's crust using peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. These common sandwich components are used to model geologic features such as synclines, anticlines, and monoclines, and to demonstrate the effects of stresses and strains. Full description.

Available on this site is a host of images, maps, and animations derived from bathymetric and topographic data. Static images and maps include those of estimated seafloor topography from satellite altimetry, total sediment thickness of the ocean floor, Great Lakes bathymetry, world crustal ages, and coastal relief. Of particular note is an interactive surface map of the Earth, which is composed of ... Full description.

This article discusses the idea of 'hot spot' volcanoes, those not associated with plate tectonic boundaries, but rather with relatively stationary sources of heat energy (thermal plumes) in the mantle. Topics include the development of the theory by Canadian geophysicist J. Tuzo Wilson; the mechanics of volcanism over a hot spot as seen in the Hawaiian Islands; ancient Hawaiian observations of the ... Full description.
