The Knowledge Capsules are created by the EOS Art Group to communicate the excitement and depth of Earth Science to an audience of non-scientists. The Earth Observatory of Singapore is a national Research Center of Excellence located on the campus of Nanyang Technological University. The Knowledge Capsules are multimedia video clips under 6 minutes and include live-action, interviews, animation and stock footage. This session presents the finished videos as well as the results of the project and details about the interdisciplinary development/ production process. To date three have been completed and posted online, with two others in production: A Tale of Two Tsunamis summarizes the ongoing research of Prof Kerry Sieh and his EOS team and collaborators in the coastline of Banda Aceh, Indonesia. https://vimeo.com/69871501 Forensic Volcano Petrology summarizes the ongoing research of Asst Prof Fidel Costa and his EOS team on the petrology of the Merapi Volcano in Indonesia. https://vimeo.com/58225787 Coastal Science summarizes the ongoing research of Asst Prof Adam Switzer and his EOS team in the coastlines of Southeast Asia and the South China Sea. https:// vimeo.com/58227048
