This site contains 15 time-lapse QuickTime movies that show the experimental deformation behavior of octachloropropane. This compound shows similar microstructures to those found in quartzite, and thus is a nice analog for the deformation of rocks. The movies illustrate cataclastic deformation, grain boundary opening, formation of subgrains, subgrain boundary formation and grain boundary migration, ... Full description.

This collection features examples of using visualization in teaching and includes concept maps, microscope videos, and animations of crystal structures. The concept maps are used to show how information can be linked. The scope videos are used to show how optical properties change as a function of orientation. These videos show minerals in plane polarized light, cross polarized light, and conoscopic ... Full description.

This Flash animation illustrates continental growth. It shows a convergent boundary where a terrane on a subducting plate is fused to the edge of a continent. Users can stop, play, fast forward and rewind the animation at any time. This visualization is one of several animations in a series developed as a component of Exploring Earth, a website that supports the textbook Earth Science. Full description.
