Interactive 3D Geologic Blocks

(ASU Version)

This module contains images and movies exploring the three-dimensional nature of geology.  You will view, interact with, and think about different geological features represented by block diagrams. To help you visualize geologic features, this website uses MP4 movies that should run on any modern device.

The worksheet for this exercise is here: 3D_blocks_worksheet.pdf

As you progress through this module, Previous and Next buttons enable you to move back and forth between pages.  

We recommend that you view these pages using Chrome, Firefox, or Edge on Windows, or your favorite browser on iOS and Linux. We DO NOT RECOMMEND Internet Explorer because its security settings often block movies from appearing.
