Geological movie explaining metamorphic rocks
What are metamorphic rocks and what do they have to do with plate tectonics?? There's cooking involved??!
Metamorphic rocks are the third kind of rock, along with sedimentary and igneous. This 13.5 minute video by Univ. Texas at Dallas grad student Siloa Willis explains what kinds of Earth kitchens there are and explains how the much younger theory of plate tectonics helps us understand the older discipline of metamorphic petrology.

Society of Africa (GSAf) — Société Géologique
The Geological Society of Africa (GSAf) was established
in 1973 to encourage geoscientific collaboration and
cooperation across the continent. Its main objectives
- to promote understanding of the earth sciences
and improve standards of earth science education
and research in Africa;
- to provide a forum for discussion and dissemination
of information across national boundaries between
scientists, associations and institutions engaged
in African geology and earth resources;
- to promote the development and
sustainable management of the continent's earth resources,
to advance its socio-economic development; and
- to improve
natural hazards assessment and disaster mitigation.
