Overview

Created through a unique collaboration among Pearson Prentice Hall’s leading geoscience authors—including Robert Christopherson, Darrel Hess, Frederick Lutgens, Aurora Pun, Gary Smith, Edward Tarbuck, and Alan Trujillo—the Geoscience Animation Library (GAL) offers over 100 animations that illuminate the most difficult-to-visualize topics in physical geology, physical geography, oceanography, meteorology, and earth science.

Available on DVD-ROM, the animations are provided as Flash files and pre-loaded into PowerPoint® slides for both Windows and Mac. The Fifth Edition animations now include audio narration and a text transcript, with new controls that enable instructors to turn the text and audio on or off.
