The Virtual Silurian Reef
A K-12 distance-learning project of the Geology Section of the Milwaukee
Public Museum, funded by the Wisconsin Advanced Telecommunications
Foundation. During the Silurian Period in earth history, 425 million
years ago, when much of North America was covered by a shallow, tropical
sea, reefs flourished in the area now occupied by Wisconsin and Illinois.
This site uses these reefs as a vehicle for students to learn general
principles, local details, and environmental significance of the study
of the ancient past.
Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey
The Survey conducts earth-science surveys, field studies, and research.
They provide objective scientific information about the geology, mineral
resources, water resources, soil, and biology of Wisconsin. They collect,
interpret, disseminate, and archive natural resource information.
