Informal / multi-age

As part of Earth Scope Geophysical Efforts we fashioned three 4-5 min videos for use as outreach awareness in the Keweenaw and Isle Royale, where the Mid-continent Rift geology can be demonstrated in dramatic field locations. Each video focusses on simple ideas: The Hot Spot, The Rift and the Redbed sediments filling the Rift. The videos aim at a general audience and are being evaluated for use in a variety of visitor centers for national and state parks and local museums and tourism information centers. We used Google Earth movies and drones to help visualize and read landscapes, and we along used outcrop visits where we read the rocks.

This video has had approximately 585 visits by 532 visitors from 320 unique locations. It has been played 418 times.
