This module was originally part of the Virtual Geography Department Project (1996-2006), a pioneering effort to help geographers create innovative learning and teaching resources on the web and was prepared for the Physical Geography Working Group of the Project. Initially designed as supplemental material for an undergraduate course in biogeography at Radford University, the site has been used by a variety of students from middle school through high school levels and by the general public.
