Colorado Geology

A Brief History of Colorado Through Time


View Movie


This movie illustrates the geologic evolution of Colorado through time, and premiered at the Opening Ceremony of the AAPG Convention in Denver on 31 May 2015.  This version has been modified slightly from the version previously shown. 

This movie was created by the Interactive Geology Project (IGP) at the University of Colorado.  The movie is one portion of a large outreach project in which scientifically accurate animations are created for outreach presentations.

A longer movie of Colorado geology is in preparation that is designed for a more general audience.  We will post that version as soon as it is finished.
