This animation demonstrates the most important relief features, surface waters and their relevant symbols.
Dry land on the surface of Earth is divided into continents which are separated by oceans.
The boundaries of tectonic plates can be seen on the seafloor.
This animation demonstrates the most important seas and bays.
In mountainous areas the climate, soil properties, the flora and fauna change depending on elevation.
The Earth is divided into geographical and climatic zones, which result in the zonation of vegetation.
The Earth's continents have been in constant motion during the history of the planet.
The Earth is a rocky planet with a solid crust and oxygen in its atmosphere.
An earthquake is one of the most devastating natural phenomena.
Vertical forces can break up layers of rock into fault blocks, which then move vertically along the fracture planes.
Seawater, as an external force, plays an important role in shaping coastlines.
In summer, monsoon winds bring heavy rainfall from the ocean to the continent.
An introduction to the relief and hydrography of China.
Tectonic plates can move in relation to each other.
Standing bodies of water can form in depressions on the surface by both endogenic and exogenic forces, as well as by human activity.
The Panama Canal is an artificial waterway created to shorten shipping routes between the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean.
The Earth is composed of several spherical layers.
The Suez Canal is an artificial waterway connecting the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.
This animation demonstrates different types of volcanic eruptions
Lateral compressive forces cause rocks to form folds. This is how fold mountains are formed.
Hotspots are areas of the Earth´s crust where magma often rises to the surface and causes volcanic activity.
Rivers play an important role in shaping the Earth's surface: they cause erosion as well as carrying and depositing sediment.
This animation demonstrates the geographical regions of Hungary.
