Overview

This library offers 101 animations that illuminate the most difficult-to-visualize topics in physical geology, physical geography, oceanography, meteorology, and Earth science. Created through a unique collaboration among Pearson’s leading geoscience authors (including Robert Christopherson, Darrel Hess, Fred Lutgens, Aurora Pun, Gary Smith, Ed Tarbuck, and Al Trujillo), the animations are conveniently provided as Flash files and pre-loaded into PowerPoint slides. The Fourth Edition of this library contains five oceanography topics new to this edition:
• Calcareous Ooze and the Calcite Compensation Depth
• Daily Movement of the Deep Scattering Layer
• Ekman Spiral and Coastal Upwelling/Downwelling
• Seamounts/Tablemounts and CoralReef Stages
• Wave Interference (with and without 3D Visualization)

The entire library has been re-sequenced in alphabetical order by title — so now it’s even easier to find the animation you need.

A useful reference for anyone interested in the geosciences and Earth’s processes.

Table of Contents

1. Angular Unconformities and Nonconformities
2. Angular Unconformities, Nonconformities, and Disconformities
3. Atmospheric Energy Balance
4. Atmospheric Stability
5. Atmospheric Stability and Saturation Control — This modified version of our “Atmospheric Stability”
animation also allows manipulation of the saturation level in Stage 3.
6. Beach Drift and Longshore Currents
7. Calcareous Ooze and the Calcite Compensation Depth — NEW to the 4e, this animation shows how calcareous ooze can be found beneath the calcite compensation depth (CCD), even though at depths below the CCD, calcareous ooze dissolves.
8. Caldera Formation
9. Caldera Formation: Crater Lake
10. Coastal Stabilization Structures
11. Cold Fronts and Warm Fronts
12. Cones of Depression
13. Convection and Tectonics
14. Convergent Margins: India-Asia Collision 1
15. Convergent Margins: India-Asia Collision 2 — NEW to the 4e, this modified version of “Convergent Margins: India-Asia Collision 1” has an alternate ocean floor map at the beginning as well as auto-pauses and additional profiles at 55, 38, and 10 million years ago.
16. Coriolis Effect
17. Cross-Bedding
18. Cyclones and Anticyclones
19. Daily Movement of the Deep Scattering Layer — NEW to the 4e, this animation shows the daily movement of the ocean’s deep scattering layer (DSL) as well as examples of the organisms that comprise it.
20. Divergent Boundary Formation
21. Dry Compaction and Liquefaction
22. Earth-Sun Relations — This revised animation now includes a “Continuous Play” feature.
23. Earth’s Water and the Hydrologic Cycle
24. Ekman Spiral and Coastal Upwelling/Downwelling — NEW to the 4e, this animation shows how an Ekman spiral forms in surface waters due to wind. It also demonstrates how coastal winds in both hemispheres produce upwelling or downwelling.

71. Seafloor Spreading and Magnetization
72. Seafloor Spreading and Plate Boundaries
73. Seamounts/Tablemounts and Coral Reef Stages — NEW to the 4e, this animation shows how sea­mounts and tablemounts are created at a mid-ocean ridge and how tablemounts become flat on top. It also illustrates the three stages of coral reef formation from fringing reef to barrier reef to atoll.
