The paleogeographic maps are arranged into several series that
show how Earth or regions of the Earth may have appeared at various
increments of time ("time slices").
This real-time dataset shows the earthquakes that daily happen
around the world that are greater than 2.5 on the Richter scale.
This dataset is updated hourly.
Cumulative Earthquake Activity: 1980-1995
Life Through Time Exhibit
The evolution of life on Earth over 3+ billion years is documented
by over 300 images of fossils in the HSU Natural History Museum.
The fossils are arranged by geologic period and supplemented with
tectonic maps, historic engravings etc.
Future Paleo Animation: How our Earth will
look in the Future
Earth's landmasses were not always what they are today. Continents
formed as Earth's crustal plates shifted and collided over long
periods of time. This video shows how today's continents are
thought to have evolved over the last 600 million years, and where
they'll end up in the next 100 million years.
