still a very large archive of previously asked questions and
their answers, separated into categories (and includes a
section on Mt. St. Helens).
- Ask the Experts at Scientific American
- Scientists answer
questions about geology, astronomy, biology, chemistry,
computers, the environment, mathematics, medicine, and physics.
- Mad Scientist Network

archive of answered questions in all science disciplines, an
area to submit a question of your own, links to other Ask a
Scientist sites, and information about careers in science.
- Join the Sciences
- This article is aimed at high school/college students,
urging them to consider a career in the sciences, but there
is some useful info that you may be able to extract and
share with your students about what sedimentary geologists do.
