Volcanic features of the Rockies trip

This weekend, I wanted to share some of the best work from this year’s Rockies field course students. Let’s start with a nice video by Marcelo Arispe:

I thought this was a really nice job making a video using still images and a voiceover. The only thing I would change would be in the Gallatin Range basalt column discussion: cooling lava loses volume, not mass. Nice work, Marcelo!

  1. That’s a great video. Congratulations on a job well done, Marcelo!

    Was this video required for your class, Callan? Do you know what software Marcelo used to assemble it? Are there others like it?

    • The final project for the course was to be a summary of a topic they “discovered” on the trip and found personally interesting, and it had to be presented in a web-friendly medium. My goal with the web-friendly medium part is to give the students practice in developing web tools (since they’re an important part of modern communication) and also, if they opt to actually put the projects online, then there’s some more open-access information out there for everyone else to use. I’ll post another project tomorrow…

      Not sure about the software. I’ll ask him.
