How a Nuclear Power Plant Works

This 88-second video from YouTube shows a labeled computer animation of how a nuclear power plant works to create energy.

How a Coal Power Station Works

This two-minute video tours a coal power station in Ontario to show how coal is used as an energy source. It includes animations to demonstrate machinery used at the plant.

World Oil Consumption - 3D Charts in Google Earth

This site, part of the Google Earth blog, provides 3-D graphs of the world's oil consumption by country, both raw use and per capita. The data comes from the CIA World Factbook.

Oil Formation and Trapping

This animation shows the successive stages in the formation of an oil reserve. In View 1, organic material settles, is buried, and is transformed by heat and pressure into oil. In View 2 an oil trap is formed: the area folds into an anticline, and oil migrates and accumulates in the anticline crest.

Numerical Models of the Geodynamo

This page from Peter Olson at Johns Hopkins University describes recent geomagnetic research. The page includes several illustrations and an animation of geomagnetic reversal.

Mantle Dynamics Research at RSES

This page from the Australian National University includes discussions (with figures) of research on mantle fluid dynamics and mantle evolution.

Visualization of 3D Mantle Data

A series of simulations from the Yuen Research group of the Minnesota Supercomputer Institute at the University of Minnesota. There are three animations showing models of temperature and velocity within the Earth's mantle.

Convection Movies

This page, on the website of Stephane Labrosse of ENS Lyon, presents some examples of flow motions resulting from convection calculations in different situations. All are for infinite Prandtl number and free-slip boundary conditions on horizontal surfaces

GIS Imagery for Haiti Earthquake

A collection of GIS map data compiled by Google Crisis Response, containing downloadable high-resolution images from several sources.

Magnetic Reversal video

This mpeg video shows the output of a magnetic field model during which a magnetic reversal occurs. The model is superimposed on a stationary Earth to highlight the field changes that would be visible from the surface during such a reversal. The video is part of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center's Scientific Visualization Gallery.
