The birth of a theory( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the origins of the concepts of continental drift and sea floor spreading, and discusses their contributions to plate tectonics theory
The Sea floor( Visual )

An animated story of Western U.S. landscapes and plate tectonics by Tanya Atwater( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a power point presentation including computer animation, Dr. Atwater illustrates how many of the spectacular landscapes of western North America were created by various plate tectonic interactions
World in Motion( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though many questions remain unanswered, the evidence for plate tectonics is found virtually everywhere it is sought and continues to mount today. Polar wandering and the characteristics of plate boundaries, hot spots, and earthquakes continue the study of plate tectonics
Look out below( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tsunami, seiches, storm surge, and seismic sea waves are very large, potentially destructive waves that can be triggered by earthquakes, volcanic activity, cyclones, and tidal effects. These waves and long-term sea level change are this lesson's focus
