Collections of Visualizations on Geoscience Topics

Browse through our collections of visualizations on geoscience topics. Each collection page is targeted at a topic that could be addressed in one or just a few class periods. Many of these pages reside in other parts of the On The Cutting Edge website so don't be surprised if the page looks different when you click on one of the links.

Use the search box to find visualizations on the topic of your choice. You can also browse through all the individual visualizations.

If you know of additional resources to add to one of the collections or have a topic you'd like to see a collect for, use our Feedback box to let us know.

2014 Oso, WA Landslide part of Cutting Edge:Hazards:Events
On Saturday, March 22, 2014, at 10:37 a.m. local time, a large landslide occurred near Oso, WA, USA. The collapse of the hillside generated a massive mudflow which rushed across the valley of the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River. The resulting debris field measured roughly 1 square mile. The slide and mudflow engulfed some 50 residences, buried an important highway through the area, and created a blockage that temporarily held back the river.
