glacial striations in Montana


     Have you ever read an article about a geology topic and wished that there was more
visual information than the one or two small photos that came with the article? 
Now you can go online with Google Earth and explore the area, make measurements,
view from different angles and elevations, add highlighted spots, and even outline features.

 

    Google Earth can be easily down loaded and it is FREE.

    The following is a collection of my geology projects that will show you what you are
capable of doing with Google Earth.
