  • Floating Egg : Episodes in the Making of Geology

    The Floating Egg begins with the search for an alchemist?s secret and ends with the re-imagination of a past world. Each chapter is connected to a particular corner of northeast England, and each explores the uncertain line where myth is dissolved into science and belief gives way to knowledge. For example, one episode shows how the fall of Constantinople converted the common rock of the Yorkshire cliffs into a source of extraordinary wealth and power, and how this, in turn, uncovered the inhabitants of a succession of past worlds. The stories move from documentary accounts to fictional recreations of historic events, from contemporary writings and illustrations to present?day reflection. By using different ways of describing the world of scientific endeavor, the author has produced a fascinating, visually beautiful, and highly entertaining book that allows us to witness the birth of a new science-geology.

  • Eruption of Mount St. Helens

    The Eruption of Mount St. Helens! chronicles the cataclysmic events during one of America's most famous natural disasters, capturing the dramatic primary and secondary eruptions that began on Sunday, May 18, 1980 at 8:32 a.m. When the destruction was over, the once beautiful symmetrical cone rising 9,667 feet above sea level had lost over 8.8 billion cubic yards of ice, rock and dirt, decreasing its height by 1,300 feet.

    Originally shot in the IMAX format, this film includes footage from the rescue helicopters that combed the area looking for survivors after the initial eruption. These amazing scenes reveal an unearthly landscape of mud, ash, and steaming craters, which sharply contrasts with the pre-eruption scenery of pristine snow-covered peaks and the crystal waters of Spirit Lake.

    As the film revisits the area a decade later, it is startling to see the rapid recovery after so much devastation. In this celebration of nature, "The Eruption of Mount St. Helens!" explores the power of nature to destroy, and to heal, in a cycle of destruction and creation that constantly changes the world in which we live.
