Dynamic Earth

Welcome to teaching resources to support dynamic earth and tectonics teaching in the School of Earth Sciences. These are currently being constructed. New material is being added as available. Material on this site is primarily designed for the first year module (called Dynamic Earth) here in Leeds but there is more too. We hope you find it useful.
