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.
