“Earth Revealed” is a series of 26 lectures (1/2 hour each) created by Annenberg Media. It is an instructional series lectured by Dr. James Sadd of Occidental College aimed at teaching/introducing the viewer to the Earth’s physical processes.
Although this series was created in 1992, the material remains accurate. This series has been and still is used in many college introductory to physical geology courses. From my understanding, it is also used for online distant learning by some universities.
Earth Revealed is made accessible to students via DVD at the university’s library as a companion to the textbook, “Physical Geology: Earth Revealed,” since the 3rd-4th edition. The book continues to flourish with a 2012 14th edition and a 15th edition due to be released in 2015. The textbook site still continues to refer to the 1992 Earth Revealed video series.
Annenberg has made the series available for free via online streaming (they also sell the series for $390+) on their site. I have copied the summary of each lecture and modified the video links so that they can be played from this blog post. It is for my collection and for anyone interested in learning the fundamentals of physical geology for free. Each lecture can be played by clicking the VoD icon to the right. Maximize the video window that opens. Keep in mind, you will be watching video quality from the early 90s.
