EarthViewer is an interactive visualization of Earth through the eons, eras and periods. Students move through time periods to see directly how Earth has changed. But it's not just about Plate Tectonics. EarthViewer connects changes on Earth with biological events, mass extinctions, and impact events. As well, there are a number of in-depth pop-ups for the Greenhouse Effect, Mass Extinctions, Plate Tectonics and a number of other related topics.
