Open Access Collections on Caribbean geology

In the light of last month’s Haiti earthquake, the Geological Society of London (GSL) and the Geological Society of America (GSA) have made their papers available on Caribbean geology. The papers for GSL will be in open access until the end of March 2010 and is hosted by the Lyell Collection. Below is the list of available papers:
