This article gives detailed practical guidance on evaluating the interpretation at six visitor centres in Scotland. In 2002 Scottish Natural Heritage commissioned an evaluation of interpretation in six visitor centres where they had funded or part-funded the work. The geological interpretation centre, aims to present Earth science in a popular way and encourage visitors to explore the geology of the wider area. It is the only attraction that is not primarily indoors. The interpretation is spread along three trails, and includes a roofed, but opensided interpretive area.

    The Gorda plate, the southernmost fragment of the larger Juan de Fuca plate system, is an example of a nonrigidly deforming tectonic accommodation zone or buffer plate, absorbing deformation and allowing the surrounding larger plates to act in a more rigid fashion. Here we present a new...

    Sediments from the ODP Site 1085A were studied to investigate the impacts of global cooling in the Middle and Late Miocene on the climate in Southwestern Africa. The size composition of the sediment was analysed emphasising the silt fraction. A comparison with the modern grain size distribution...
