Rod Holcombe Structural Geology Animation Library

Rod Holcombe, Department of Earth Sciences

This site features several short animations of rock deformation. Animations are grouped by type, including flow and strain, shear zones, and fault-bend fold animations. The site contains both animated GIFs and QuickTime movies that can be viewed directly with a web browser.
