The Weight of Mountains

The Weight of Mountains

Icelandic Landscapes (credit: The Weight of Mountains)

The natural geologic processes that create and destroy mountains are fascinating. A documentary from Iceland provides a backdrop to reflect on geology, geography, and environmental factors affecting mountains anywhere.

The Weight of Mountains is a haunting and strange film, just like the Icelandic landscapes it depicts.

NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio provided some beautiful animations as illustrations.
