The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has been developing a series of informative videos for educators and members of the general public, and this online presentation about landslides in the San Francisco Bay Area is a nice addition to this body of work. This particular film looks at the various catastrophic landslides which have affected the region over the past twenty five years, along with offering an exploration of the dynamics behind landslides and the contributing factors to their severity. In the video, visitors will hear from scientists, Bay Area residents, and others who have experienced landslides first hand. The site also includes links to reports by the USGS on the areas affected by these periodic landslides. One could imagine that this film could be used in a physical sciences classroom at many different levels of education.
