Geology website from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History

The Dynamic Earth website from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History brings alive the history of the earth from the perspective of the physical sciences. You can explore the Earth’s history in 4 sections: “Gems and Minerals”, “Rocks and Mining”, “Plate Tectonics and Volcanoes”, and “The Solar System”. Each section uses interactive graphics, demonstrations, photographs, and other visual materials to take the geologically curious into the world of the inner Earth, plate tectonics, meteorites, and a host of related topics.

Moving along, the “GeoGallery” area lets users explore the database here for records of various gems, minerals, rocks, and volcanoes. Visitors can look around via an interactive map or they can just even click “Random Slide Show”.
