Historical Earthquakes and Uplift/Subsidence of Sumatra from Coral Growth Rings
This exercise is for college undergraduates or graduates in geology or oceanography. It uses real coral data to reveal the historical record of earthquakes and land deformation in Sumatra over the past century. It can be downloaded in its entirety from the website. There are two versions:
Documentary film about science for high school students
(sneak preview - 60 seconds; but can take time to load)
Twenty-minute documentary film showing the process of scientific inquiry.
The film follows an interdisciplinary, international team of scientists, including the TO's Ken Farley, exploring the geology and climate of the Tibetan Plateau. Produced by CIRES.
