nd polygons (and therefore strikes, dips, etc.)the 3-D model of the geology. This is applied in Slick Hills, Oklahoma, USA, comparing and integrating it with conventional mapping. Another approach that captures an entire exposure, 3-D photorealistic modeling derived from terrestrial laser scanners and digital cameras, is also applied for comparison and contrast. The scanner approach captures the entire exposure, but this is demonstrated to be an expensive and complicated process. The laser "gun" approach, particularly when using 3DLT, has distinct advantages in cost, ease of use, speed, logistics, and real-time analysis, with competitive accuracy, and it is at least complementary to other methods.


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
