A 13-minute video "Lake Superior and the Midcontinent Rift: the billion year story" tells the “story behind the scenery” covering both the geology and geoheritage - how the Mid-continent rift gave rise to Lake Superior that is the basis of the area’s water-based history and economy, the copper deposits that shaped the region’s settlement and growth, and today’s tourist industry.
The video was produced by Northwestern University and features several EarthScope researchers.
