This collection of web-based teaching resources is intended to assist educators in teaching structural geology. There are sections of materials on basic structures (folds, faults, shear zones, and others), including picture galleries, a section on principles of rock organization (deformation and geometry), and a section on strain, how it can be seen in rocks, and how it can be quantified. A collection of virtual field trips introduces students to structures and tectonic evolution of some prominent sites around the world, and a special section introduces the structural geology of the western Alps. Other materials include a virtual structural field mapping class, a section on rheology (the science of the deformation and flow of matter), and a collection of links to external sites with additional information.
