Science on a Sphere: Our Changing Climate/The Vast Ocean

Time 04/23/13 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

Using NOAA's Science on a Sphere (SoS) for graphic representations of earth data, Beth Russell will give 2 brief talks on:

  1. Our Changing Climate: Many indicators point to changes that are already occurring in our climate. In this Science On a Sphere presentation, we will visualize the current changes taking place and show how our climate is likely to change in the future. (1:15-1:50)
  2. The Vast Ocean: The ocean is vast, powerful, full of life, and constantly changing. In this Science On a Sphere overview of the ocean you will see the bottom of the sea floor, watch ocean currents circling the planet, track sea life across the Pacific, and get a glimpse of the human impacts on ocean. (2:00-2:30)

Time is reserved at the end of each talk for questions. Movies on other related topics will be displayed at other hours; please check the online description of these materials at: http://events.internet2.edu/SoS-demos/
