Caribbean plate tectonics

This illustration available at Wikimedia Commons shows the plate tectonic setting in the Caribbean. Plate boundaries are color-coded by margin type and plate motions are noted with direction and magnitude in mm/yr.

Teachable Moments: Haiti Earthquake

This page from IRIS includes links to resources about the geology of the January 12, 2010 Haiti earthquake. Included are animation/visualization links, USGS resources, and others.

Haiti Earthquake, Deforestation Heighten Landslide Risk

This photo from National Geographic shows the difference in deforestation between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The accompanying article describes the increased risk of earthquake-related landslides such deforestation carries.

Digital Globe sample imagery gallery: Port au Prince, Haiti

This viewer presents imagery produced by Digital Globe of Haiti both before and after the earthquake on January 12, 2010. Users can select "before" imagery, select a particular day's views to see, or pick the most recent imagery which is automatically updated.

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

Mantle Convection using Adaptive Mesh Refinement

This page from the University of Texas at Austin gives a snapshot and brief description of an adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) global mantle convection simulation. Part of the TACC Scientific Visualization Gallery.

Applied Geodynamics Laboratory Salt Tectonics Sandbox Animations

This collection of salt tectonics sandbox animation movies done by Giovanni Guglielmo, and available at UT Austin website, can be used to illustrate concepts and processes in a structural geology course. To access the animations, click on the 'animations' link in the menu on the left side of the web page. The animations are excellent for illustrating that the path from undeformed strata to final cross section is highly dynamic and can include a world of unrealized intermediate geometries. For example, the animations 'Rising and falling diapirs' can be used to introduce the concepts, and 'Raft Tectonics - Kwanza Basin' to illustrate the possibilities.

Haiti Crisis Map

This map from the Open Source Geospatial Foundation Telascience is a mashup of satellite, topographic, and political maps, which can be toggled as overlays. All maps are of Port au Prince area, Haiti.

GIS Imagery for Haiti Earthquake

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