Geologic Forces that can change our World


Geologic Forces that can change our World



GLACIATION: PROCESSES AND LANDFORMS

How are glaciers formed? Where are they found? How and why do they move? How do they shape the land, both now and in the past? Using examples filmed in the UK, Iceland and the Alps, and with the help of satellite images, graphics and interviews with some of the world's leading glaciologists, this resource illustrates and explains the processes and landforms associated with glaciers. For access to the very latest research and current thinking on glaciation, this resource is an absolute must.

ICELAND: LIVING WITH VOLCANOES

Focussing primarily on the 2010 eruption, this resource first asks why people choose to live in volcanic regions? The opportunities for geo-thermal power, tourism and agriculture are considered. It then explores the impacts of the Eyjafjallajokull eruption and responses to it including the role of: emergency planning; early warning systems and better volcanic ash forecasting. A fantastic case study for MEDC/LEDC geo-hazard comparison when used with the Montserrat or Haiti titles.

GOLD - ROCKS & MINERALS

Throughout the ages men and women have cherished gold and many have had a compelling desire to amass great quantities of it - so compelling a desire that the need to seek and hoard gold was aptly named "gold fever". Gold was among the first metals to be mined because it commonly occurs in its native form. It is not combined with other elements, is imperishable and exquisite objects can be made from it. Dating back over 5,000 years ago, Gold was used by artisans of ancient civilizations to decorating tombs and temples. This program teaches a brief history of the discovery of Gold and explores the many uses throughout history. Subjects covered include: Physical and chemical characteristics of Gold, How Gold is connected to world economies, How Gold is found and classified, Various hypothesis on how Gold was formed in the Earth, Mining for Gold in underground mines, Open-pit mining for low grade Gold deposits.

RIDING THE STORM - LANDSLIDE DANGER

Discover The Wonders of Our Earth and the forces and life forms that shape our world with the Earth Science Series. Designed specifically for the middle and high school science classroom, this series introduces students to the various geologic forces and physiographic regions that have shaped our planet. A catastrophic 1982 rainstorm triggered 18,000 landslides in the Bay area, claiming 25 lives and causing $66 million n property damage. The combination of steep slopes, weak rocks and intense winter storms make the Bay area uplands an ideal setting for landslides. Landslides include both swift, potentially deadly debris flows and slower, but destructive deepseated slides. Students will learn what USGS scientists have discovered about landslide dynamics and which slopes are most susceptible to sliding. Discover the devastating stories of the Bay area residents and learn to recognize the danger signs.

PLATE TECTONICS

Studies of our planet's crust, or lithosphere, suggest that it's not a single solid layer at all. This DVD illustrates the process of scientific inquiry by studying the evolution of our understanding of plate tectonics, the dynamics of those ever -shifting slabs of earth we call solid ground. Beginning with Alfred Wegener's hypothesis of continental drift, the program discusses major and minor plates, types of plate boundaries, and the concepts of spreading and subduction. Earthquakes and volcanoes are also addressed.
