The Nature of Things Geologic Journey: Atlantic Coast (Part 5 of 5)

The Nature of Things Geologic Journey: Atlantic Coast (Part 5 of 5)

This episode of the Geologic Journey series sweeps us eastward — and backward: east to the Atlantic coast, and hundreds of millions of years back in time, to tell the story in three dramatic chapters of how tectonic upheaval pummelled and pounded eastern North America, until the shape we recognize today finally emerged. Along the way, viewers are invited to travel over a long-vanished ocean, forefather of the Atlantic. We linger over thousands of fossils whose discovery once solved a problem that baffled Darwin, and witness graphic proof of how North America and Africa were once bound together.
