Essential Web Based Resources in Geology


This is our collection of websites in the field of geology that we have identified as having content and relevance to the college or university student studying the subject of biology, These sites are not lists of links. Instead they contain data, tutorials and background information that will serve to assist the understanding of the subject as well as providing ideas for research projects and papers.  For our collection of general academic resources which may contain geology related materials as well as those from other subjects click here.

Earthquake Bulletin
Earthquake Bulletin is provided by the United States Geological Survey’s (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program as part of our effort to reduce earthquake hazard in the United States. We are part of the USGS Geologic Discipline and are the USGS component of the congressionally established, multi-agency National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP). The USGS participates in the NEHRP with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the National Science Foundation (NSF). In the 2004 reauthorization of NEHRP by Congress, NIST has been given the lead role to plan and coordinate this national effort to mitigate earthquake losses by developing and applying earth science data and assessments essential for land-use planning, engineering design, and emergency preparedness decisions.

Earth Science World
Earth Science World The Earth Science World ImageBank has photographs of all aspects of Earth Science available to the public, educators, and the geoscience community. Select multiple time periods from a list and display them on an Interactive Geological Time Scale.Investigate Careers in Geoscience and learn about job opportunities, degrees programs, and enrollment statistics in the Earth Sciences.

Geological Time Machine
Geological Time Machine is organized into three "wings".

  • The Phylogeny Wing examines the diversity and relationships between the major groups of living things on earth. The exhibit is built around our understanding of these relationships, so closely related organisms will be discussed "near" each other.
  • The Geology Wing explores the history of the earth, looking at the earth and its life at particular points in time. In this exhibit, organisms and events are discussed based on the time at which they occurred, regardless of relationships.
  • The Evolution Wing focuses on the people who have developed and contributed to our current understanding of phylogeny and geologic history.

How Volcanoes Work
How Volcanoes Work is an educational resource that describes the science behind volcanoes and volcanic processes. The site is sponsored by NASA under the auspices of Project ALERT (Augmented Learning Environment and Renewable Teaching). It is intended for the education of university students of geology and volcanology and teachers of earth science. Each section in the menu builds upon previous sections. For users who lack fundamental knowledge of volcanological principles and terms, it is best to proceed through the website in a progressive manner. More advanced users will find each section self-contained and can navigate through the website as their interest dictates.

IRIS Seismic Monitor
Seismic Monitor allows you to monitor global earthquakes in near real-time, visit seismic stations around the world, and search the web for earthquake or region-related information. You can also view seismograms and make dataset requests via its WILBER interface.

Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam
Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam
is maintained by the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument.

Yellowstone Volcano Observatory
To strengthen the long-term monitoring of volcanic and earthquake unrest in the Yellowstone National Park region, on 14 May 2001 the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Yellowstone National Park, and University of Utah entered into an agreement to establish the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO).
