Below are a few links to Earth Science educational animations, video lectures, and other electronic resources for Students.
The Earth Science Animations from IRIS contain text, graphics, animations, and videos to help teach Earth Science fundamentals. Topics include hazards, plate tectonics, Earth structure, earthquakes and volcanoes.
These Earthquake Video Lectures from IRIS are short-segment video lectures to give rudimentary background information on the Earth and plate tectonics to teach how earthquakes happen and how they are studied.
The Seismic Monitor is a real-time monitor of global earthquakes.
Teachable Moments presentations capture that unplanned opportunity to bring knowledge, insight, and critical thinking to the classroom following a newsworthy earthquake.
The Rapid Earthquake Viewer (REV) gives you access to data from seismograph stations around the world. REV monitors the earth and posts information about recent earthquakes so you can see where they happened and view the seismograms from global seismograph stations for every notable earthquake. REV even lets you check up on seismograph stations in your area, so if you think you felt the ground shake
The IRIS Earthquake Browser is an interactive map service for viewing Earthquake Epicenters superimposed on a map of the world. The IEB is useful both educationally and as a research tool.
These Wave Visualizations show animated ground movement of seismic waves. The visualizations show how the ground moves as seismic waves sweep across about 400 earthquake recording stations in EarthScope’s Transportable Array.
Did You Know? provides scientific background on some of the most exciting geologic issues on the North American continent.
The Jules Verne Voyager, Jr. is an interactive map tool that enables students and scientists to better understand the relationships between geophysical and geological processes, structures, and measurements with high-precision GPS data.
The EarthScope Voyager, Jr. has a similar structure to Jules Verne Voyager, Jr., but has EarthScope specific data and links to information about some of the geographic regions of interest to the EarthScope Project.
