Visualization of folding in marble outcrops, Connemara, western Ireland: An application of virtual outcrop technology
K.J.W. McCaffrey et al., Earth Sciences Dept., Durham University, Durham, DH1 3LE, UK.
In this paper, McCaffrey et al. discuss the use of laser scanning (LiDAR) and three-dimensional visualization technologies to produce virtual outcrops for student instruction purposes. We present two case studies in which students used virtual outcrop datasets to gain an understanding of marble outcrops in Connemara, western Ireland. Our work suggests that these methods have the potential to become a valuable aid to student learning.
Geochemical processes contributing to the contamination of soil and surface waters in the Rio Conchos basin, Mexico
Mlida Gutirrez et al., Geography, Geology and Planning, Missouri State University, Springfield, Missouri 65897, USA.
The spatial distribution of geochemical sediment data (540 sampling sites) was analyzed to identify possible contaminant sources of the Rio Conchos in northern Mexico. The study focused on the two contaminants posing the largest threat to water quality: salts and toxic metalloids. The results show their most likely sources and th
