Table of Contents
Welcome to Notes on Planet Earth version 3.0. This newest of three versions of Notes on Planet Earth was developed during the summer of 2008. As you can see from the Table of Contents displayed on the left
side of this page, this web site consists of
a series of fifteen chapters from my eBook, Notes on Planet Earth - An Introduction to Key Concepts in the Earth Sciences. In addition, you can find here videos of my lectures (screencasts), practice exams, video reviews for each of four required exams,
and twelve laboratory assignments for Geology 101. All laboratory assignments
are provided as pdf files. Students enrolled in Geology 101 are expected
to download and bring printed copies of each laboratory assignment to class. If you are a teacher or student at another college and are interested
in purchasing a copy of the eBook, then please contact
If you are interested in a Natural Disasters course, then you might want to consider my online course which is taught in the summer. The link entitled Perilous Earth in the Table of Contents will take you to the web site supporting this class.
Note: The eBook for this site was developed in Adobe Director. In addition, many interactive illustrations were developed in Adobe Flash. Unfortunately, Apple and Android devices do not support either of these Adobe products, and as a result, if you are using a handheld device running either of these operating systems, then you will not be able to access the eBook or any of the Flash movies.
