The Clarence Cook Little Science Building on the University of Michigan's Ann Arbor campus is home to the Department of Geological Sciences. The building's infrastructure was significantly upgraded during a multi-year renovation during the early to mid 1990's. Following this, a display and decoration committee was established to concentrate on building signage and a series of wall-mounted materials which would serve both the decorative and educational needs of the department. These two four foot by eight foot maps are one of several major installations to come out of that committee's work. One displays the distribution of historically active volcanoes and ocean floor ages and the other the distribution of earthquakes and the major tectonic plates.
