An Age of Ice - Shows how the different sciences work together to explain what is presently known about the prehistoric past of the Pacific Northwest. Also deals with the first evidence of man found in this region.Warriner; G.; 1985; Camera One Productions: Seattle; Washington.
Columbia River Gorge - HugeFloods (22:21): The Columbia River Gorge features an incredible variety of geology and human history as it slices through the Cascade Range of the Pacific Northwest. The Columbia River Basalts, the Missoula Floods, the Bonneville Flood, the Bridge of the Gods, Celilo Falls, Multnomah Falls, Beacon Rock, Lewis and Clark, the Oregon Trail, the Columbia River Highway, and more!

Glacial Lake Missoula - HugeFloods (18:51): Glacial Lake Missoula was the source of much of the water for the famous Ice Age Floods of the Pacific Northwest. Featured field evidence for the lake include strandlines above Missoula; Montana; giant current ripples at Camas Prairie; and striking rhythmites along Interstate 90 at Nine Mile Road near Missoula.Published on Jun 14; 2015
Ice Age Floods, Lake Missoula, Bonneville Flood and the Columbia River Basalts - HugeFloods (18:17): Floods of lava (Columbia River Basalts) and Ice Age Floods of water (Lake Missoula floods and the Bonneville Flood) are world-famous topics among geologists. To have both sets of floods in the same area means the geology of the Inland Northwest is truly Disneyland for Geologists! Published on Dec 8; 2014

THE GREAT ICE AGE FLOODS: Catastrophic Transformation of the West - Two programs on one DVD; available through the IAFI Bookstore; about the spectacular floods that radically changed the landscape of the Pacific Northwest some 17;000 years ago when Ice Age glacial dams near Missoula; Montana broke apart and unleashed an inland sea-what geologists believe is the greatest flood known to humankind.Program 1 produced by Washington State University in cooperation with Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area; National Park Service; program 2 produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting.
The Mystery of the Megaflood - PBS NOVA (53:37): Geologist J Harlen Bretz in 1923 was the first to propose a radical geologic theory-that huge geologic features in Americas Pacific Northwest were formed by catastrophic water flow. He named the Channeled Scablands; with its catastrophically water-carved coulees; dry waterfalls; potholes and huge erratic boulders. At that time; most scientists believed these geologic features were formed by gradual erosion and deposition following the notion of uniformitarianism; which ruled out sudden changes in the landscape by catastrophic events.
Trees of Stone: The Story of Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park - Video posted to YouTube in 3 parts. Beneath the haunting desert landscape of central Washington lie the petrified remains of an achient forest nearly 15 million years old! This is the story of Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park; part of a land once covered by trees and lush vegetation and then buried under lava millions of years ago.This video was originally produced by Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission (WSPRC); 1999; Videoland Productions; 22 minutes.
