An Index to Online Geologic Field Trip
Guides of California

The traveler can experience a "...myriad of scenic wonders lying within California's boundaries, wherein is perhaps the most remarkable collection of natural masterpieces to be found in any state of the Union."
Norman E.A. Hinds
California Divsion of Mines Bulletin 158, 1952

Introduction

The California Geotour is an interactive index of Web pages of geologic field trip guides and related Web sites compiled by the California Geological Survey (CGS) for the benefit of all who have wondered about California's geologic features. We have listed Web pages that contain geologic information, including photographs, maps, text and directions for local natural features throughout the state. The Web pages have been developed by government agencies, geological organizations, professors, students, commercial enterprises, park districts, environmental groups, and those with a keen interest in the earth sciences.

The California Geotour index is organized by regions collectively named  the Geomorphic Provinces of California. The geologic field trip guides are further grouped into general areas within each province. (Example: Basin and Range Province \  Death Valley Area). These areas are listed in geographical order from north to south within each geomorphic province.

We welcome your input and comments about the California Geotour.  We may have inadvertently overlooked some interesting Web pages. If you would like to recommend other California geology related Web sites for this index, please contact the CGS Webmaster.

  California Geomorphic Provinces Index Map
To Online Geologic Field Trip Guides

California Geomorphic Provinces are distinctive, generally easy to recognize natural regions in which the geologic record, types of landforms, pattern of landscape features, and climate in all parts are similar. For example, the alpine features of the Sierra Nevada greatly distinguish that geomorphic province from the subdued relief on the valley floor of the Great Valley Province. If you would like more information about the geomorphic provinces, please see CGS Note 36, "California Geomorphic Provinces", which provides a comprehensive  description of each of the regions. Click on a province name from the list or a map area below to view online geologic field trips from that province.

Basin and Range : Cascade Range : Coast Ranges : Colorado Desert
Great Valley : Klamath Mountains : Modoc Plateau : Mojave Desert
Peninsular Ranges : Sierra Nevada : Transverse Ranges
