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.
