This book was written to provide an up-to-date understanding of the geology of Minnesota for Earth Science teachers and others who have some background in geology.
Our goal is to summarize what geologists think today about how the rocks in Minnesota formed and their place in geologic history. We believe that if the Earth Science teachers of the state have a better understanding of the processes responsible for the major geologic phenomena, they will stimulate an interest in their students in that history and an appreciation of the varied natural surroundings.
Teachers can browse through it and decide if they would like a hard copy, or just use the scanned version.
