That portion of the earth's surface known as "the Big Bend" has often been described as a "geologist's paradise". In part this is due to the sparse vegetation of the region, which allows the various strata to be easily observed and studied. In addition to a geologic history of the region, this site includes photographs, maps, recent earthquakes, volcanoes, petrology and paleontology relating to the ... Full description.

In this activity, students explore how the movement of tectonic plates forms mountains, volcanoes, oceans, and earthquakes. It first describes the plates and the various types of interaction at plate boundaries. An interactive map of the world shows the relationship between plate boundaries and earthquakes, allowing the student to click on selected place to explore a volcano, mountain, hotspot or ...
