The Grand Canyon: How It Formed

The formation of the Grand Canyon is the focus of this earth science video. Although the video is old, the narrator does a fantastic job, along with the help of some clear graphics, of explaining the geologic forces that contributed to the uplift of the Colorado basin, coupled with the "buzz saw" effect of the Colorado river. A good explanation of how the Grand Canyon got to be so wide in places is also offered. Very good!
