CCM3 T170 Cloud and Precipitation Simulation part of SERC Web Resource Collection
This simulation, from NCAR, shows global patterns of water vapor and precipitation as they change throughout the year. Users may also view the simulation by month.
Effect of the Sun's Energy on the Ocean and Atmosphere part of CLEAN Collection
In this mock mission, students become members of a research team and conduct a series of tasks to audit Earth's radiative budget. They use a Java Applet/visual viewer to access satellite data sets, ...
Exploring Polar Oceanography part of CLEAN Collection
This activity utilizes labs, online resources, and student ideas to build an understanding of polar climates, how changes in polar oceans can affect coastal climates, and how changes in polar regions ...
Hot, Cold, Fresh and Salty part of CLEAN Collection
In this activity, learners observe the effects of the layering of warm and cold water and water that is more or less saline than regular water. They will discover how the effects of salinity and ...
Great Ocean Conveyor Belt: Part II part of CLEAN Collection
This podcast features the Great Ocean Conveyor Belt and potential impact of an increase in fresh water (from melting sea ice the Arctic) entering the North Atlantic. It includes interviews with two ...
Aquarius: Ocean Circulation part of CLEAN Collection
This short video from NASA discusses the role that salinity plays in Earth's climate and ocean circulation, focusing on the observations of the Aquarius satellite.
Changing Planet: Fresh Water in the Arctic part of CLEAN Collection
This Changing Planet video documents scientists' concerns regarding how melting Arctic sea ice will increase the amount of fresh water in the Beaufort Gyre, which could spill out into the Atlantic ...
Thermohaline Circulation part of CLEAN Collection
This map shows the pattern of thermohaline circulation. This collection of currents is responsible for the large-scale exchange of water masses in the ocean, including providing oxygen to the deep ...
Global Ocean Conveyor Belt part of CLEAN Collection
This hands-on activity explores the driving forces behind global thermohaline circulation.
