Tours in Google Earth around Arizona highlight aspects of its geology

As a part of my final set of lectures for the 2012 Structural Geology class, I used my Camtasia to record some fly overs of Arizona from inside Google Earth.

In the first video (29 Mb MP4 format video file or on youtube), I tour from inside the Grand Canyon to around Flagstaff, Prescott and Jerome and finish over south Phoenix.

In the second video (29 Mb MP4 format video file or on youtube), I tour from the White Mountains of eastern Arizona over to Phoenix and on down to finish above Tucson.

These videos are not narrated, but they are then embedded in the narrated lecture on the Cordilleran geologic history (post Eocene) that I developed for the class (look around 20 minutes):
Tectonic history of the western North American Cordillera (from Eocene) ppt
video narration--big file (100MB)--may need to right click and save to local disk. Lecture narrated video on Youtube

videos

I hope these might be useful for others.
