About this product

Please note: this software was written and designed before 64-bit operating systems (OS) were introduced. If you are running a 64-bit OS, such as a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or Windows 7, this software may not function. Please note that suppliers do not accept returns of sealed software that has been opened, and NHBS can therefore not refund such items. If in doubt, please contact customer services or the software supplier to enquire after compatibility before purchasing this item.

101 animation illuminate the most difficult-to-visualize topics in physical geology, physical geography, oceanography, meteorology, and Earth science. Created through a unique collaboration among Prentice Hall'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.


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. 25. Elastic Rebound 26. El Nino and La Nina 27. Erosion of Deformed Sedimentary Rock 28. Exposing Metamorphic Rock 29. Faults 30. Folds 31. Foliation of Metamorphic Rock 32. Foliation Processes 33. Fractional Crystallization 34. Glacial Advance and Retreat 1 35. Glacial Advance and Retreat 2 36. Glacial Isostasy 37. Glacial Processes 1 38. Glacial Processes 2 39. Global Geography Through Geologic Time 40. Global Warming 41. Global Wind Patterns 42. Global Wind Patterns with Hadley Cells 43. Hot Spot Volcano Tracks 44. Hurricane Wind Patterns 45. Igneous Features and Landforms 46. Inclination and Declination 47. Jet Stream and Rossby Waves 48. Kelvin Calculation of Earth's Age 49. Lava Lamp Convection 50. Magma Rising from the Mantle 51. Mantle and Core Dimensions 52. Mantle Melting and Plate Tectonics 53. Mantle Melting and Pressure-Temperature Graphs 54. Mass Movements: Five Main Types 55. Mass Movements: Uplift and Mass Movement 56. Midlatitude Cyclones 57. Motion at Plate Boundaries 58. Mount St. Helens, Washington: Debris Avalanche and Eruption 59. Natural Levee Development with Flooding 60. Nebular Hypothesis of Solar System Formation 61. Ocean Circulation 62. Oceanic Midlatitude Productivity 63. Ozone Depletion 64. Pangaea Breakup 65. Physical Weathering 66. Plate Boundary Features 67. Radioactive Decay 68. Relative and Absolute Motion 69. Relative Geologic Dating 1 70. Relative Geologic Dating 2 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 sea-mounts 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. 74. Seasonal Pressure and Precipitation Patterns 75. Sediment Transport by Streams 76. Sediment Transport by Wind 77. Seismic Wave Motion 78. Seismic Wave Motion with Surface Effects 79. Seismographs 80. Shoreline and Sedimentation Changes 81. Stream Processes: Floodplain Development 82. Stream Processes: Oxbow Lakes 83. Stream Processes: Oxbow Lakes and Floodplain Development 84. Stream Terrace Formation 85. Stress and Strain Graphs 86. Tectonic Settings and Volcanic Activity 87. Terrane Formation 88. Tidal Cycle 89. Tornado Wind Patterns 90. Transform Faults 91. Tsunami 92. Tuttle and Bowen's Data 93. Volcano Types 94. Water Phase Changes 95. Water Table Formation 96. Wave Interference -- NEW to the 4e, this animation allows the user to control wave variables of two different waves and see the resulting patterns pro-duced when the two waves interfere with one another. 97. Wave Interference with 3D Visualization -- NEW to the 4e, this variation on the "Wave Interference" animation adds the ability to display a three-dimen-sional view of the resulting wave. 98. Wave Motion and Wave Refraction When Approaching Shore 99. Wave Properties 100. Wave Reflection and Refraction 101. Wind Pattern Development
