Nature of Earth: An Introduction to Geology (VIDEO)


Nature of Earth: An Introduction to Geology
36 lectures, 30 minutes/lecture -AVI

Have you ever been to Yellowstone National Park? If so, you have stood on a catastrophe

in the making. The central region of the park is inside a collapsed volcanic crater

that pulses with the hidden energy of magma deep below that will eventually explode in

an eruption surpassing any in recorded history.

Or have you ever driven in the rolling hills of the Piedmont region that extends from

New Jersey to Alabama? Then you have crossed the core of an ancient mountain range that

once rivaled the Himalayas. Now almost completely eroded away, these peaks were created

300 million years ago in the collision of tectonic plates that formed the

supercontinent of Pangea.

Or have you ever noticed something as simple as tipped fence posts or leaning retaining

walls? If so, then you have witnessed one of the most powerful and irresistible agents

of geologic change, the ubiquitous force of gradual erosion called mass wasting.
