Description DeepEarth is a computer simulation, which allows users to interact with a geological environment. They can dispose of topographic or geologic maps and can perform drillings to discover the structure of the underground formations or the locations of some ore deposits. When this first phase of investigation is over, three more tools become available, namely cross-sections, structural maps and block diagrams, to allow comparisons between what the students assume to be the hidden underground and what is in fact the "real" thing. More than twelve geologic models are provided, going from a horizontal series model to a folded, faulted, and intruded series model. The teacher can change many parameters of a model, like its structural orientation, its dip, or add secondary tectonics. The mean level of erosion, the average relief, or the soil thickness (which determines the number of observable geologic outcrops) can also be adjusted. In addition, it is possible to change the way streams have eroded the banks by selecting the type or the dimensions of the valley profiles. It permits the displaying of the USGS 1:24,000 Digital Elevation Models.
