The goals are to teach the basic scientific techniques used by geologists, how to access a wide variety of geological information, how to make scientific observations, and how to develop hypotheses. This site is a complete syllabus with lecture and laboratory outlines. A section for announcements lists not only upcoming course activities, but current geologic events in the headlines as well. The news announcements are hyper-linked to photos and complete articles. A page for offsite geological links connects to resources of the following categorizes: Plate Tectonic Overview and General Geology Links, Earth's Materials, Concepts of Geologic Time and Dating, Crustal Deformation and Plate Margins, Crustal Evolution Over Time, and Miscellaneous.
