New physical geography education videos posted to my YouTube channel

I have just finished up a couple short educational videos, primarily for my teaching in Geography 120, Intro to Physical Geography. They aren't perfect but I find they help students relate to the material as they see me interacting with the landscape, and they know I travel to learn and experience geography. 

This video is a series of clips I took in Summer 2021 on a long road trip through the American West. Here I show evidence of continental drift along the Calaveras Fault in Hollister, California: 

And this video has a longer introduction and explanation to the 2011 earthquake and tsunami that devastated the northeast coast of Japan. After the intro I include a couple short clips I took in one of the worst-hit areas, Rikuzentakata. The intro is longer because one of the clips I recorded in Rikuzentakata was way too windy to understand.
