This site provides interactive computer models to aid in undergraduate geological education. These modules contain extensive visual material of geologic phenomena, interactive computer models of significant physical principles, video and audio segments of geologic processes and simulation models of complex geologic problems. These simulation techniques take into consideration the interaction of social as well as scientific input into a problem. The topics of the laboratories include field measurements of a stream profile and the water velocity, water sampling and laboratory measurements of aspects of water chemistry and water-rock interaction, flooding, ground water flow, topography, erosion, mass-wasting, volcanoes, earthquakes, and Earth resources and population. Although the topics are mostly standard for introductory geology and environmental geology, the new approach involves the use of interactive educational modules via the World Wide Web.
