Galapagos Geology on the Web

Cornell University, Department of Geological Sciences

For those interested in natural history, there are few places quite as facinating as the Galapagos. The intention of this web site is to provide information on the Galapagos Islands to both scientists and non-scientists alike. While the emphasis of this web site is on geology, Galapagos wildlife is difficult to ignore, so you will find many images and observations on biology, as well as geology, on this site. Sections include: a brief introduction to Galapagos geology, Tour the Islands, Galapagos Climate and Oceanography, Galapagos History (which includes a discussion of Darwin's work related to evolution and natural selection), and a Bibliography.
