in this section

Snee Hall, the home of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, houses a number of fascinating displays including the Timothy N. Heasley Mineralogical Museum which contains precious and semi-precious stones from all over the world, dinosaur footprints, a life-size plesiosaur cast, and a number of fossils from the Paleontological Research Institution. Not in the above panosphere is also a large working model of sediment transport by water flow, and a continuously operating, earthquake recording, seismograph station that you can check to see if there’s significant seismic activity anywhere on the planet. In addition, Snee contains many state-of-the-art facilities for isotope geochemistry, high-pressure mineral physics, and Cornell’s Center for Materials Research.
