About the Tour
A few words on site navigation:
Much of the narrative material for this "virtual" tour is drawn from field trip handouts prepared for lower-division courses in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science (particularly EPS 20 and EPS 50) and from materials put together by Pat Williams. Most of the photographs used in the tour were taken by BSL staff; one notable exception is the aerial photograph, prepared in 1994 by HJW and Pacific Aerial Surveys, that was used in creating the tour map. Additional references and great resources are available if you wish to Explore More.
While we've attempted to touch on many important aspects of geology and related sciences, this tour is by no means all-inclusive. You may notice a subtle bias towards faults and earthquakes. We like it that way.
