Description:

This Earth science animation shows middle and high school students how the Himalayan mountains developed when two continental plates converged. The animation depicts the steps in the formation of the Himalayas, beginning with the movement of the Indian plate toward the Eurasian plate and the subduction of oceanic crust under Eurasia. Key features are labeled, and movie control buttons are provided. An introductory paragraph gives an overview of the plate movements shown and points out that the Himalayas keep rising as India continues to press into the Eurasian plate.
