Creating breadbaskets( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We often think of wind as a destructive force, building into epic tempests such as hurricanes or tornadoes, or racing across the plains scouring the earth of topsoil. But without the sediment deposits the result from wind, world agriculture would be far less abundant. This video explains how loess deposits became the breadbaskets of the world

Seafloor exploration( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many ways, the seafloor is the "final frontier". In fact, we know more about the surface of the moon than we know about the seafloor, the largest part of Earth’s surface. Scientific exploration of the seafloor began in the late eighteenth century, but two-and-a-half centuries later we ask, "How do we know what we know?"
