References and Recommended Readings

This site is primarily targeted to the general public and to secondary-school students in the earth sciences. For the lack of summary works in this field, we also anticipate a certain level of service to post-secondary students and professionals in the geologic sciences. For the general public, resources in this area are very limited. We have provided the very short list of current popular books on the subject at the end of this section.

Students and professionals in geology will find a rich professional literature (much of it Canadian) in this field. Largely for their interests, the following sections reference some of the more important studies in these areas, and offers references for some of the alternative interpretations which attend some of the more controversial aspects.

The following references are largely limited to articles and papers published in scientific journals, in government reports and in other professional publications. It does not include abstracts, theses or dissertations, or on-line reports. By a somewhat arbitary convention, we have limited this list to 100 entries. This means that it only represents a small sampling of the literature, typically the more recent, available and broad-based articles. Highlighted articles represent those with interpretations contrary to those we have selected for this exhibit. Readers are encouraged to consider them.
