      Geological Educational Resources for K In , the Education Committee of the Kentucky Geological Survey, in conjunction with the Kentucky Society of Professional Geologists, established the Earth Science Education Network (ESEN). Originally, the network provided a group of geologists who served as resource persons for teachers. Through most of the Paleozoic Era, what is now Indiana was under the sea. Sediments were laid down and compressed to form the sandstones, limestones and shale layers that make up Indiana's bedrock. These layers represent a geologic record or timeline, with .

The study of Indiana's geology is commonly divided into the study of the unlithified earth materials that occur at the surface and the study of the rocks that are sometimes at, but mostly below, the surface of Indiana.

The term “bedrock geology” describes the study of the rocks at and below the bedrock surface. There are several important aspects to Indiana's bedrock geology. The bedrock of Indiana is limestone, dolostone, sandstone, and shale bedrock that was deposited primarily during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras (see accompanying map #1 and geologic timescale below);* of note: at some point, even the igneous basement rocks of the midwest were eroded.

Roadside Geology and Geology Underfoot books will help you learn about the geology of your favorite state. These books are great to take on a trip, but they work even better if you use them in advance to plan your trip wisely. Each book is a 6"x9" paperback loaded with maps, photos, cross-sections, sketches and expert descriptions.

A watershed is an area of land that drains all the streams and rainfall to a common outlet such as the outflow of a reservoir, mouth of a bay, or any point along a stream channel. Watersheds can be as small as a footprint or large enough to encompass all the land that drains water into rivers that drain into Chesapeake Bay, where it enters the Atlantic Ocean.

Surficial Geology "Surficial geology" refers to the study of landforms and the unconsolidated sediments that lie beneath them. The majority of the unconsolidated sediments found at the land surface were deposited during the late Wisconsin glaciation, 21, to 13, years ago.

The following are virtual field trips and published geology field guides. Included in each is a map of the field-trip area, a discussion of the general geology of the area, and pertinent references that can be used to help explain the geology of the trail route or road.

The geology of the Earth is a fascinating subject of study. Whether it is identifying rocks along the road or in your backyard or the threat of climate change, geology is a major part of our everyday lives. Geology includes everything from the study of rocks and minerals to Earth's history and the effects of natural disasters on society.

A fault is a fracture or zone of fractures between two blocks of rock. Faults allow the blocks to move relative to each other. This movement may occur rapidly, in the form of an earthquake - or may occur slowly, in the form of creep.

Faults may range in length from a few millimeters to thousands of kilometers. Most faults produce repeated displacements over geologic.needed wherever an understanding of rock properties and geological structures is required, i.e.

road construction, building foundations, dam construction etc (3). The local geology of an area is important when planning a major construction (4). The geology of an area represents the location and nature of any civil engineering structures (5).
