    Most of the supplementary material is found in the main section entitled Chapters. Each of 12 chapter pages has links to subsidiary pages entitled: Chapter Figures, Chapter Scripts, and Chapter Exercises. With a laptop connected to the Web and an LCD projector in the classroom instructors can use the images in Chapter Figures to illustrate geological concepts. Instructors and students can run the MatLab scripts (downloaded as text or m-files from Chapter Scripts) for dynamic visualization of the geometrical and mechanical concepts. Printable copies of the exercises and solutions may be downloaded as pdf or doc files from Chapter Exercises).

    Chapter Exercises (Ch 11 & 12), Solutions (Ch 11 & 12), and Chapter Scripts (Ch 10, 11 & 12) are under construction.
