The On the Cutting Edge website and workshop program are supported by the National Association of Geoscience Teachers NAGT. Datasets are in KMZ form, so they must be downloaded to your computer and opened in Google Earth. Clams and oysters; many living species.


Minerals Online rock and mineral identification kit by Jonathan Evenick of the University of Tennessee — provides photographs and descriptions of various rocks and minerals. The bi-weekly blog posts address topics related to supporting students' academic success, facilitating students' professional pathways in the geosciences, broadening participation in the geosciences, and catalyzing change. By using this information from rock formations in various parts of the world and correlating the studies, scientists have been able to establish the geologic time scale. Understand how decay and half-life work to enable radiometric dating to work. About About this Site Accessibility Printing Privacy Feedback.
