This is the first of 16 videos of virtual voyages through the Earth's interior exploring the modern slab geometries. These 16 videos accompany the manuscript submitted to Earth and Space Science, 2018, entitled "A Visual Survey of Global Slab Geometries with ShowEarthModel and Implications for a Three-dimensional Subduction Paradigm" by Margarete Jadamec, Oliver Kreylos, Benjamin Chang, Karen Fischer, Benjamin Chang. Data sources: 1-Gudmundsson and Sambridge  slab contours in 50 km. 2-Syracuse and Abers  slab contours in 50 km. 3-Hayes et al.  slab surfaces. 4-Bird  plate boundaries. 5-Engdahl and Villaseñor  earthquake hypocenters. 6-Jadamec and Billen  slab surface. 7-Jadamec and Fischer  slab surfaces.
