Evidence of a Restless Planet

A sweeping geological journey, Earthquake explores the forces that transform the surface of our planet.

Data-driven visualizations illustrate Earth’s story, revealing how subtle motions and sudden ruptures have shaped our planet over eons – and how geological activity influences the course of human history. Finally, we see how scientists and engineers help society prepare for a safer future.
