Reading Lists

Michaelmas Lent 2014 Lent 2013 1a & 1b reading lists 

Part 1A Reference Series: Rocks, Minerals & Fossils 

This website houses photographs and descriptions of the specimens found in the 1A (first year) Reference Series at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Cambridge. This series is a collection of rocks, minerals and fossils used to aid the first year Geology students in their practical revision. It is not an exhaustive collection, but includes the range of specimens with which the first year students should become familiar. You may also want to use The Virtual Microscope web site in conjunction with the Reference series - or Vice Versa


Part II/III Reprint Collection

The Part II/III Reprint Collection List includes details of all articles that are available in hard copy and may be borrowed from the Library Office. Many of them are on reading lists but may not be available elsewhere in the Library.


Visit Camtools the "virtual collaboration environment" for course support materials - Raven login required. 

Past Tripos Papers

Copies of past papers can be found on the relevant CamTools website. There is also an index page linking to papers for all of our courses on Camtools but this can only be accessed from computers in the University. 

Members of the ESC Supervisors area of CamTools can also access copies of papers for all our courses externally by using the  Camtools login. Anyone who supervises geology courses in department should contact  or one of the course organisers to be registered for access to this area of CamTools.

Smartphone compass/clinometer apps. Warning from Nigel Woodcock

I keep being told that the complete answer to collecting field orientation data is a smartphone app such as FieldMove Clino. This does a lot of good things, BUT you should be aware of possibl errors. This is a regular topic of discussion on the Geotectonics discussion  group at You can sign up there to see the FieldMove Clino thread beginning on 27/8/14, but the gist of the widely held concerns is in the post below from Richard Jones at Geospatial research at Durham. I'm sure that we will get reliable app/smartphone combination within a few years, but be careful in the meantime. 

"We have carried out quite a lot of systematic testing of the suitability of iPhones as compass-clinos for measuring geological planes - and we have experienced very mixed results. 

The good news is that ...

  1. we have managed to get good, repeatable results that are approximately as precise as a set of analogue compass-clinos (Silva liquid filled housings, double spirit-level, no electronics). 
  2. once we're up and running, using an iPhone is much quicker than any analogue compass-clino we've used; so ideal for taking large numbers of measurements from a single sampling site (e.g. fracture transects).
  3. we've now taken many, many thousand measurements with iPhones that we believe are within acceptable precision.

The bad news is that ...

  1. if we're not very rigorous in setting-up and calibrating the devices, we usually get randomly bad results.
  2. even if we are very careful, the iPhones sometimes don't self-calibrate properly - so we always cross-check the iPhone against an analogue compass-clino before and after a measurement session.
  3. there's no obvious way of examining the device itself to see whether it's likely to be functioning correctly - you must have another device with which to compare it.

So personally, I'm extremely sceptical of the general validity of any orientation data that have been collected with smartphones - unless the user has documented their calibration procedure carefully, and that the calibration has not relied wholly of the device's own calibration [... or until someone has documented why this isn't necessary]. 
Based on this, I'd also recommend that any orientation data that are published (or form the basis for interpretations that are published) include a statement on the equipment and method used."

General online resources

These are links from where you can select specific country information.These resources will often just give you an overview of the country with some topographic, and sometimes geological information but in ageneral way

Contours to import 

A good resource for worldwide contours is the Global Digital Elevation Map (GDEM) made available by NASA from here: There a number of choices you can make but in all honesty I've only ever tried one and it works fine. You'll need to create an account to be able to download the material you want but it is a simple process and the account is activated immediately. Remeber to be as precise as you can with you areas, as the larger the area you request the larger the files you'll have to manipulate. 

General Geological  Resources online


  • OneGeology OneGeology is an international initiative of the geological surveys of the world access the viewing portal from here - Remeber to click on the View Layers option to add and remove your chosen layers.

                Institutions/Geological Surveys

                • A useful page from Berkeley for Geological surveys and institutions of the relevant country. A strong US focus but a good starting point
                • BGS geoportal - Good way to find out all the details of academic and commercial organizations for you to get in touch with in the country of your mapping project – try and do a text search on the country/region you’re interested in


                Buying maps

                Part II Mapping Projects: The Librarian will purchase topographic maps that you need but in some instances (especially if mapping abroad) it will be cheaper for you to buy the maps whilst there. Always make sure that you will be able to do this beforedeciding on this course of action. The Librarian needs plenty ofadvance notice for ordering foreign maps via the normal agents. TheLibrary will buy these maps back from you providing that you havepre-arranged this with the Library staff AND the maps are in goodcondition.
