of the resource and its value for teaching structural geology, using the text below as examples.
Example 1: Short, well written article that presents a nice case for the role of dissolution in cleavage formation and is an early article on this subject. This is a good article for a class discussion on cleavage and its formation, and students can be asked to comment on what they believe are the most compelling examples that support the authors' position.
Example 2: Short article on the role of bedrock structure on the distribution of elevated pore pressure and reservoir induced seismicity. Excellent real-world example of pore pressure effects. Clear description of connection between local structure and regional tectonics.
Example 3: A wonderful detective story that deals with locating and mapping faults in the field and migration of fluids with dissolved, intoxicating volatiles through permeable fault zone rocks. The connection to human events (the Delphi Oracle) is a lovely bonus. Because it is a Sci Am article, students find it very readable.
