The source organization is indicated on selected graphic images if it was derived from public-domain sources (where no copyright is legally binding). It is important to note that changes are constantly happening and the original websites, in many cases, no longer exist on some government websites: their URLS may have changed, or they have been deactivated, archived, or replaced with newer or revised information.

Phil Stoffer (PhD, Earth & Environmental Science) currently works at MiraCosta College teaching courses in geology, earth science, and oceanography. He is retired from the USGS and has also worked as a librarian for many years in many settings. Compiling information for this website has been an on-going effort since he first started building natural science websites in the early 1990s. This website is now host to web information that previously appeared on GeologyCafe.com, education.usgs.gov, and other websites (that are no longer active).
