As geographers, we are always capturing and creating short, geographically fascinating video clips, that help bring the world around us into the classroom. Time for Geography Geog’ Clips is a space for geography researchers, teachers and practitioners to share short (<60 second), interesting geographical video clips with secondary school students and teachers. 

This month’s Geog’ Clips call-out challenge is for clips relating to Glaciation, and we have had some fantastic clips shared so far:

•  Glaciers, volcanic activity and braided river systems in Iceland

•  Striations, chattermarks and the erosional impact of glaciers

•  Landscape evidence of recent glacier recession

•  Eyjafjallajokull and the impact of Icelandic eruptions

Our partner Rab: The Mountain People have very kindly donated a monthly prize for the best Geog’ Clip each month, as judged by our team of geographers.

Geog’ Clips can include videos like - 

•   Fieldwork clips captured on smart phones, that show a geographically interesting place, feature or phenomenon
•   Rare events caught on camera (ice-berg calving events, landslides, eruptions, floods, earthquakes etc.)
•   Animations or data visualisations
•   360-video/photos for students to immerse themselves in a field location
•   Drone footage showing physical or human landscapes from new vantage points

Our first Geog’ Clip of the month award goes to Edwin Baynes, for his fantastic, short video showing the use of drones to produce 3D models for studying waterfalls. Congratulations Edwin, a lovely Rab hat is now on its way to you.
