Travel around the world with geoscientists who use new high-tech tools to study why the ground constantly shifts under our feet.
Guided by leading geoscientists with the aid of dramatic special effects and animations, unravel the mysteries of continent-building and the almost unimaginable span of geologic time. Using high-tech science tools and even ultra-light aircraft, travel with geoscientists as they discover America's prominent geologic features and how they were formed.
See how geologic and climatic changes have shaped human development and sparked human migration around the globe as ice ages retreated and advanced. Earth has shaped human evolution and now humans are shaping Earth. But it is a mistake to think human innovations have put mankind and Earth on an equal footing. Find out if this delicate balance will one day be put off-track.
