Volcanoes of the United States investigates the active and dormant volcanoes in many of the Western States
Forces That Shape Our Earth identifies the major landforms of the world and reviews the various forces that affect the physical environment including glaciers, volcanoes, gravity, rivers, lakes and oceans, movement in the earth, wind and temperature changes
Weathering and Erosion explores how the surface of the Earth is in constant struggle with the elements such as wind, running water, gravity and temperature changes
Earthquakes and How They Are Measured examines how earthquakes are measured, captures an actual earthquake, and explains Mercalli and Richter measurement scales
Waves, Coastlines and Beaches focuses on the geological processes that take place where ocean meets land and explains how erosional and depositional processes form features such as rugged coastlines, barrier islands, spits, Tombolos, wave cut terraces, sea stacks, and beaches
Physical Geography of the United States introduces students to the general geology of the United States, major Physiographic Provinces of the U.S., and the general geologic forces
The Hydrologic Cycle examines the water cycle from transpiration through evaporation to condensation, precipitation and run-off
Geologic Time provides an overview of the millions of years in which the processes and forces that shaped the Earth took place, how scientists use the geologic time scale, and how geologists use potassium-argon dating to determine the age of rocks and minerals
Underground Water discusses how water is trapped between grains of rock underground; discover wells, water flow, hydrology, artesian wells and the water table
Running Water—How It Erodes and Deposits explores the relationship of running water to the land and teaches concepts including suspension, solution, load, rapids, potholes, meanders, braided streams, deltas, alluvial fans, waterfalls and flood plains
Glaciers That Shape Our Earth introduces the world of glaciers to students and clearly explains their impact on most of North America
Introduction to Rocks and Minerals examines the characteristics of common rocks and minerals and teaches scientific identification procedures
Sedimentary Rocks investigates how weathering breaks up rock and sediment is turned into sedimentary rocks including sandstone, limestone, siltstones, coquina, mudstones, shale, dolomites, conglomerates, fossil limestone and sandstones
Metamorphic Rocks such as slates, schists, gneisses, granite, marble and quartzite are explored and the mechanism of change discussed
Igneous Rocks discusses various volcanic rocks, igneous rocks of dykes and sills, and plutonic rocks such as granite, syenite, gabbro and ultramafic rocks, including many specimens not often found in classroom labs or textbooks
