Review: I found this site to be one of the best sites dealing with maps of a geological view of ALL of the Great lakes. When you get to the site you can click on links to each map that will show a great detaled out map and what it stands for. I feel that this site would be a great site to use for class. I recommend that those that read this check out this site.

Evolution of the Great Lakes maps based on Geology

Website: Great Lakes Sediment Management Program URL: Author: Jan Miller, Type of Agency: US Army Corps of Engineers, Great Lakes & Ohio River Division

Summary: This is a great site. It offers a program overview, information on soil erosion, sediment transport, and activities the group is working on. People in our Bio class should look at it because there is such a great wealth of information about the geology, especially sediments, in the Great Lakes. The information found on this site is also contained in articles and presented in workshops, so I believe it to be quite reliable. I recommend this site to anyone interested in sediments and their effects on the Great Lakes. Rating: ****

Canadian Sheild,Precambrium or Caurentan Plateau I enjoyed this site a great deal becuse of the maps that were offered and because of all of the talk on the Canadian Sheild. Because we basically started the semester talking about how the Great Lakes and its bedrock were formed, I found this site to be very interesting. I felt like I could relate a little to what information they offered because of what i read and learned in your class. Rating****
