Field Project Tutorials: A Virtual (Structural) Field Project
This virtual five-day field mapping project allows students to construct a geological map from data provided by the web site. Students collect geologic, structural, paleontologic, strain and microstructural data observed at specific localities. Students are then able to derive a structural history for the area, including a field map, stereographs, and deformation plots. The site contains photographs and images, data, and all information that is needed to complete the exercise. It also provides solutions to some of the exercises.
