Educational Resources for Teaching Petrology

Examining chromite horizons at the Stillwater mine

This collection of internet resources is intended to help faculty in teaching or designing petrology courses. Many of the resources are lecture notes or PowerPoint presentations that are illustrated with useful diagrams, graphs and figures. There are also course syllabi, petrology projects, and on-line galleries of photomicrographs.

These links may not necessarily have instructional activities associated with them, but they could support teaching of igneous and metamorphic petrology. Examples may include links to government agencies, professional societies, institutions, and include images, maps, databases, tools and reports.
