The Nature of Things: Geologic Journey II
Science Documentary hosted by Nick Eyles, published by CBC in 2010 – English narration
The Nature Of Things: Geologic Journey II
Geologic Journey II will change the way you look at the world. In each episode, we dive straight into the Earth’s mysterious geologic processes – and explore both science and legend as we seek to understand and explain the geologic forces that shape our world, and our lives. With Dr. Nick Eyles of the University of Toronto Scarborough as our guide, this five-part documentary series will reveal the Earth’s magnificent power and its breathtaking beauty. Geologic Journey II takes us to some of our planet’s most dangerous and dynamic places, and helps explain how they got that way. From some of the highest mountaintops to the lowest salt plains, and from the center of violent volcanoes to the deep trenches beneath the ocean floor, Geologic Journey II travels with some of the world’s most outstanding geologists as they decipher the mysteries of the earth’s evolution. Combining stunning HD pictures and beautiful aerial photography, this series gives the audiences a connection to their surroundings like never before. Geologic Journey II captures a world being torn apart by the very plates that connect it.
1) Tectonic Europe
In this episode, we will traverse the Eurasian plate across Europe -from Iceland, where new land is formed – to the Alps, where old land is destroyed. In between viewers will 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, where geology became the science that changed the world. Viewers will trek with University of Toronto geology professor Dr. Nick Eyles and his guides through volcanoes, glaciers, crags, mountains, rolling hills and broken cliffs that reveal the tectonic story of the earth.
2) The Pacific Rim Americas
Prof. Nick Eyles will travel along the west coast of North America, in The Pacific Rim: The Americas. Following the shore, we’ll travel from Alaska to California to Chile discovering how tectonic rhythms threaten the people living along the two continents’ coastlines.
3) The Western Pacific Rim
This episode focuses on the Asia-Pacific side of The Pacific Rim of Fire, which stands as a living testament to the beauty and danger that powerful geologic forces can deliver. The Pacific Rim is home to half of the world’s active volcanoes and ninety percent of the world’s earthquakes, yet nearly 800 million people continue to live within its violent edge. Our journey begins in New Zealand, a land of volcanoes and earthquakes, where we find a 500-kilometre long slip-strike fault deep under the Pacific Ocean. Geologist Hamish Campbell will take us to the crater of White Island, the country’s most active volcano. Then we’ll visit the country’s southern island with John Youngson, to find out how New Zealand’s longest fault-line contributes to the gold industry. Finally in Japan, viewers will hike up to Mount Fuji – the iconic peak where science and legend converge, getting up-close and personal with a fault-line witnessing firsthand what it’s like to discover new ways of monitoring, and hopefully one day predicting, seismic activity onboard the world’s most advanced drilling vessels.
4) The Collision Zone Asia
Welcome to the Collision Zone – the fiery unpredictability of Indonesia’s volcanoes at one end, the massive Himalayas at the other and millions of years of tectonic tension in between. The collision zone of the old world is about to be the hub of the new. India, the Himalayas and the island arc of Indonesia – these lands will form the centre of the world’s next supercontinent. A story unfolds-a tale of where the earth has been and what the earth shall be: a whole new world that we’ll barely recognize.
