Visitors witness Volcanic Edinburgh

Dr. Stuart Monro, Scientific Director, and Nina Ludgate (Event Communications) visited KMi’s MultiMedia Enabling Technologies group to see protoype material for the Volcanic Edinburgh part of the exhibition currently under construction for the Dynamic Earth project in Edinburgh.

A web page for the project, with sample QTVR movies, can be viewed at http://met.open.ac.uk/met_vr/v r_earth.html

Later, they went on to Earth Sciences to see other geological materials in use in OU courses.
