Geology and Geophysics Links
- United States Geological Survey (USGS)@
USGS sites focus on biology, geography, geology, geospatial information, and water resources of the U.S. and the world. The U.S. Geological Survey also offers sites monitoring recent earthquake activity and other natural hazards.
- NASA Astrophysics Data System
Abstracts on astrophysics, astronomy, instrumentation, geophysics, and physics. Plus the Los Alamos preprint server, articles, and catalogs.
- British Geological Survey (BGS)
World's longest established national geological survey and the UK's premier centre for earth science information and expertise.
Daily geo-news updates, discussion forums, an expansive directory of links, virtual field trips, geology classes, and a glossary.
Weekly newspaper of geophysics.
- Savage Earth
PBS series dealing with earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, and other disasters.
- Dynamic Earth, The [read review]
National Museum of Natural History multimedia presentation covering gems and minerals rocks, and mining, plate tectonics and vulcanology, and the solar system.
Do you have a question about volcanoes, earthquakes, mountains, rocks, maps, ground water, lakes, or rivers? Email your earth science questions to a U.S. Geological Survey earth scientist.
- Geologic/Geophysical Data for the Middle East, North Africa and Eurasia
Diversified datasets for the Middle East, North Africa and Eurasia. A profile maker, a focal mechanism maker and much more data and information are available.
- Amateur Geologist
Bringing the joy of exploring the geology of our world and nature itself to all by providing information and services to their fellow amateur geologists.
- Geology Toolkit
Allows users to explore region-by-region how the rocks which make up the British Isles have developed.
