Observe an animation of the Himalayas forming

Jennifer Loomis, TERC, Exploring Earth

A Flash-based movie of Himalayan formation, demonstrating how the Indian plate originally subducted beneath Eurasia before the two continents collided, creating the Himalayas. This well-done visualization is captioned, to help explain the images, and it also provides overhead and side views of the Himalayas, making it possible to see the results of orogeny from more than one angle.
