The Nature of Things Geologic Journey II — Tectonic Europe (Part 1 of 5)

The Nature of Things Geologic Journey II — Tectonic Europe (Part 1 of 5)

This episode traverses the Eurasian plate — from Iceland where new land is formed to the Alps where old land is destroyed. In between, we witness the twisted, gorgeous landscapes of the Earth's surface under pressure, places where scientists first came up with the very study of geology itself. Trek with University of Toronto Scarborough geology professor Nick Eyles and his guides through volcanoes, glaciers, crags, mountains, rolling hills and broken cliffs that reveal the tectonic story of the Earth.
