Long DescriptionThis is not a guide to identifying rocks, but a guide to land formation. It shows how to recognize the key field marks and how to use them to read geological history: plate movements, earthquakes, glaciers, rivers, seas and other forces that have shaped a particular patch of earth over millions of years - and are still shaping it. Each geographical region of eastern North America is described vividly and illustrated with detailed maps and cross sections, as well as color photographs that show the characteristic field marks of the different formations in the region. Highway tours tell where to go to find the best examples of the various formations and to get a clear sense of the history of the land.

Sorry folks for the slow and spotty service to our site yesterday (1/10/2013). There was work being done in the area and it caused general service interuptions.

We experienced poor internet accessability and noticed far fewer visitors than normal to the site. There was a point over night when all internet service went down. We contacted our ISP this morning to find out they were performing maintenance in our area and had to shut down a hub station at one point.

The maintenance in general caused a bottle neck for data in our area and shutting down the hub took us completely off-line for almost an hour.

This is regretable but well beyond our control. We are sorry if this impacted you and access to our data.
