Dr. John Shea demonstrates the two main principles in the study of rock layers: superposition and association.
The Geoscience Career Spotlight series highlights the variety of careers available to geoscience majors in addition to academia. This video highlights Laura Snider, a science writer at the University Consortium for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) in Boulder, Colorado.
Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA captured this time lapse imagery of the "Blood Moon" lunar eclipse, from the moments before Earth Completely blocked the Moon's view of the Sun until shortly after the "umbra" shadow passed.
From space, we can understand fires in ways that ar eimpossible from the ground. New Earth-observing satellites capture the significant impact of fires on our planet. In this animation of fires around the globe in 2002, each red dot marks a new fire. Dots change color to yellow after a few days...
A tediously accurate scale model of the solar system. Scroll across the screen to see the true scale of the universe.
This HD dramatic video choreographed to powerful music introduces the viewer/student to the wonders of Astronomy. It is designed as a "trailer" to be shown to classrooms by Earth science and astronomy teachers in high school and college as a visual "introduction" to the magic of the cosmos.

New techniques may help create rain. "Cloud-seeding" involves flying into clouds and spraying salt. This article and video explain how cloud-seeding takes place.
Suppose you placed a camera at a fixed position, took a picture of the sky at the same time every day for an entire year, and overlaid all of the photos on top of each other. What would th esun look like in that combined mage? A stationary dot? A circular path? Neither. Oddly enough, it makes a...
Add different salts to water, then watch them dissolve and achieve a dynamic equilibrium with solid precipitate. Compare the number of ions in solution for highly soluble NaCl to other slightly soluble salts. Relate the charges on ions to the number of ions in the formula of a salt. Calculate...
Join hosts Hank Green, Kallie Moore, and Blake de Pastino as they take you on a journey through the history of life on Earth. from the dawn of life in the Archaean Eon through the Mesozoic Era -- the so-called "Age of Dinosaurs" -- right up to the end of the most recent Ice Age.
