This video examines environmental processes across a range of temporal and spatial scales to portray activities taking place in scales ranging from subatomic particles to continents. The video uses a series of clocks to illustrate environmental processes that operate on attoseconds to hundreds of millions of years. The processes described are all relevant to the problem of acid mine drainage associated with coal mining. The video is available for a free download in a variety of resolutions and formats, including 3D stereo, QuickTime and Ipod.
