This article describes the occurrence of listric normal faults (those which gradually flatten out with depth) in the continental shelf offshore Oregon and Washington, as seen in seismic reflection profiles. There is also a discussion of the faulting mechanics, the timing of uplift on the continental shelf, and the separation of compressional and extensional tectonic regimes on the lower and upper ...

This collection of eight essays was written by participants at the 2005 On the Cutting Edge workshop entitled Understanding What Our Geoscience Students Are Learning: Observing and Assessing. One article draws parallels between the order-in-chaos of fractal mathematics and the order-in-chaos of what good teaching looks like. Another text summarizes design principles forged and some of the assessments ... Full description.

This site features Flash animations that illustrate various facets of the rock cycle. The visualizations depict rock-forming processes, such as erosion, transportation, deposition, cementation, crystallization, subduction, and eruption, that create sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks. They also show cooling environments that result in varied crystal sizes and demonstrate igneous rock classification. ... Full description.
