"Teaching Geology, Google Style"

Linking two of my joys--geology and Google Earth--The Wired Campus announced that a new textbook will be coming out knitting structural geology (!) and flying to locations in Google Earth. Written by structural geologists Stephen Marshak and M. Scott Wilkerson, Earth: Portrait of a Planet, 3rd ed., is due this month from W.W. Norton & Company.

One of the authors, Scott Wilkerson, has a great GE project, DELUGE, at his website - http://www.depauw.edu/acad/geosciences/mswilke/DELUGE.html. Fantastic use of overlaid topo maps for visualization.
