Known Errors in Earth Science Puzzles: Making Meaning From Data.
How do we know what the climate was like in the past?
- In Figure 1.3 on page 2 of the book, the symbol for "unsorted pebbles and clay" appears outside its boundaries in both the key and the sediment column. A corrected page is provided in this erratum supplement (pdf).

- In the Pedagogical Content Knowledge Guide for this puzzle, on page 33 of the book, the Answer Key for question 4 states, "At the same time that the pressure reached its low point, the wind direction shifted suddenly from southerly to northeasterly."

What does an earthquake feel like?
Is the Hudson River too salty to drink?
Where did the water go?
How much heat is released by a seafloor hydrothermal vent?
