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.

This PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. This 37-slide presentation starts by presenting a generalized map of the earth's rift system. The composition of mid-ocean ridge basalt is introduced in the context of major-element chemistry, petrography, trace elements, spreading rate, and isotope chemistry. Melt generation in terms of mantle and lithospheric structure ... Full description.

The UC San Diego Webshaker is a live earthquake experiment conducted over the internet. The user can select a historic earthquake or design an earthquake by specifying the frequency, amplitude, and duration. The shake table delivers base motion to the test structure in the same way that an earthquake shakes buildings and other structures. A live video broadcast and precise measurements from sensors ...
