Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The Used and Rental copies of this book are not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


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 Pearsonrs"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: bull; Calcareous Ooze and the Calcite Compensation Depth bull; Daily Movement of the Deep Scattering Layer bull; Ekman Spiral and Coastal Upwelling/Downwelling bull; Seamounts/Tablemounts and CoralReef Stages bull; Wave Interference (with and without 3D Visualization) The entire library has been re-sequenced in alphabetical order by title - so now itrs"s even easier to find the animation you need. A useful reference for anyone interested in the geosciences and Earthrs"s processes.

Table of Contents

Angular Unconformities and Nonconformities
Angular Unconformities, Nonconformities, and Disconformities
Atmospheric Energy Balance
Atmospheric Stability
Atmospheric Stability and Saturation Control
This modified version of our ldquo;Atmospheric Stabilityrdquo; animation also allows manipulation of the saturation level in Stage 3
Beach Drift and Longshore Currents
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
Caldera Formation
Caldera Formation: Crater Lake
Coastal Stabilization Structures
Cold Fronts and Warm Fronts
Cones of Depression

Convergent Margins: India-Asia Collision 1
Convergent Margins: India-Asia Collision 2
New to the 4e, this modified version of ldquo;Convergent Margins
India-Asia Collision 1rdquo; 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
Coriolis Effect
Cyclones and Anticyclones
Daily Movement of the Deep Scattering Layer
New to the 4e, this animation shows the daily movement of the oceanrsquo;s deep scattering layer (DSL) as well as examples of the organisms that comprise it
Divergent Boundary Formation
Dry Compaction and Liquefaction
Earth-Sun Relations
This revised animation now includes a ldquo;Continuous Playrdquo; feature
Earthrsquo;s Water and the Hydrologic Cycle
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

Seafloor Spreading and Magnetization
Seafloor Spreading and Plate Boundaries
Seamounts/Tablemounts and Coral Reef Stages
New to the. 4e, this animation shows how seashy;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
