EarthScope

EarthScope is a community of scientists conducting multidisciplinary research across the Earth sciences utilizing the freely accessible data collected and maintained by EarthScope facilities. EarthScope is also an in-depth collaboration between scientists and educators bringing the excitement of cutting-edge Earth science research into classrooms, museums and parks. Below, you will find links into various parts of the EarthScope site where you can find information, data, and materials that can help you create teaching activities related to the Deep Earth.

EarthScope in the Northern Rockies
Interdisciplinary workshop dedicated to the identification of links between the surface geology of North America and the forces at work in Earth's interior. Included an overview of the EarthScope facilities in Montana, identification of research and educational opportunities related to the EarthScope project, and two field trips. The workshop website features posters and presentations by participants on EarthScope science and incorporating it into geoscience education.
