As part of EarthScope studies of the Midcontinent Rift, the SPREE project, a 13-minute video "Lake Superior and the Midcontinent Rift: the billion year story"​

has been produced. In non-technical terms, It tells the “story behind the scenery” covering both the geology and geoheritage - how the Mid-continent rift gave rise to Lake Superior that is the basis of the area’s water-based history and economy, the copper deposits that shaped the region’s settlement and growth, and today’s tourist industry.

The video was produced by Northwestern University and features several EarthScope researchers.

The video is available on the EarthScope YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nm3UUyRSav0 <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nm3UUyRSav0> and a link can also be found in the videos section of the EarthScope website.
