Notes for Geology
From the USGS comes this amazing new map of the Lower
48 states. This map depicts the "most detailed and accurate
portrait of the U.S. land surface and underlying rock formations."
The map is available as a .pdf file as well as the accompanying
pamphlet and a .zip file of the Photoshop layers making up the
map. Also available is a website where you can find out
how the map was made. Be patient ... the results are worth
it but the download takes a long time!
Looking for a cool vacation that involves a geological field
trip? The Geologist's
lifetime field list contains links by subject to major geological
locations. Even if you're not vacationing its a fun site for dreaming!
