Physical Modeling in the Geological Sciences: An Annotated Bibliography. CEGS Programs Publication No. 16.
Charlesworth, L. J., Jr.; Passero, Richard Nicholas
The bibliography identifies, describes, and evaluates devices and techniques discussed in the world's literature to demonstrate or stimulate natural physical geologic phenomena in classroom or laboratory teaching or research situations. The aparatus involved ranges from the very simple and elementary to the highly complex, sophisticated, and expensive; some models are designed for secondary school earth science classes while others may be suitable only for advanced graduate classes or research. All models are instructive and relevant to the subject of physical modeling as the authors define this phrase in the preface of the material: "some physical structuring that illustrates, demonstrates, duplicates, or stimulates a geologic phenomenon." Thirteen area subsections are involved in the bibliography: economic geology, extraterrestrial/astrogeology, general, geochemistry, geohydrology, geomorphology, geophysics, Mineralogy/crystallography, oceanography/limnology, paleontology, petrology, sedimentation/hydrodynamics, structural geology/tectonics.
