The rocks of the Mohawk and Hudson Valleys of upstate New York tell a fascinating story, both through the rock layers themselves, as well as the life contained within them. Each individual outcrop, while interesting in many ways, pales in comparison to the story that unfolds when many of the units are compared and contrasted regionally. What comes to the surface is a story of tropical seas, violent ... Full description.

Since the Hawaiian Islands were all created by volcanic activity, it is somewhat surprising that only the island of Hawaii now possesses any active volcanoes. Why did the volcanoes that built the other islands stop erupting and why are those on the big island still active? This video segment, adapted from a NOVA television broadcast, shows how plumes of hot material rise from the Earth's interior ... Full description.

This web page guides the user through the Pacific Mountain System geologic province, one of the most geologically young and tectonically active in North America. The generally rugged, mountainous landscape of this province, which includes parts of Washington, Oregon, and California, provides evidence of ongoing mountain-building. One map shows the plate tectonic setting of the Pacific Mountain System ... Full description.

This activity has students plot the locations of active volcanoes on a world map to discover how these locations relate to the those of earthquakes and lithospheric plate boundaries. Students work in three groups, two of which plot earthquakes and the boundaries of the Earth's plates. The three maps are superimposed and students discuss the relationships. This activity has an objective, a list of ... Full description.
