Abstract: This openly available virtual field trip (VFT) focuses on the Huronian rocks at Whitefish Falls, near Manitoulin Island, Ontario. Here, we examine a rock record spanning more than 2 billion years of Earth’s history. This multimedia VFT combines 3D imagery, georeferenced data on integrated maps, and multi-scale imagery (outcrop plus thin section images). The Whitefish Falls VFT comprises 5 parts, each focusing on a slightly different topic. The following topics are introduced: the regional geological setting, key lithologies, concepts of geological field mapping, stratigraphic analysis of outcrops, and the identification, documentation, and interpretation of geological structures in the field.
