Physical Geo: Rock Identification Paper.
These are two different labs for an online class in Intro to Physical Geolog
One lab requires Google Earth. It can be downloaded onto a computer at no cost.

Soils Geography lies between Physical Geography and Pedology Bridges, E. M. (1981). “Soil geography: a subject transformed”. Progress in Physical Geography: Earth and Environment. 5 (3): 398–407. doi:10.1177/030913338100500303. S2CID131268490.
(Soil geography) is a branch of study which lies between geography and soil science and is to be found as a fundamental part of both subjects (Bridges and Davidson, 1981) Degórski, Marek (2004). “Geografia gleb jako dyscyplina flzycznogeograficzna” [Soil geography as a physical geography discipline] (PDF).

The compilation of Edrisi marks an era in the history of science. Not only is its historical information most interesting and valuable, but its descriptions of many parts of the earth are still authoritative. For three centuries geographers copied his maps without alteration. The relative position of the lakes which form the Nile, as delineated in his work, does not differ greatly from that established by Baker and Stanley more than seven hundred years afterward, and their number is the same.
