Windytv part of CLEAN Collection
This is a full color, worldwide, animated weather map using GIS interface showing current and projected wind and other weather conditions for any location in the world. Data can be viewed at ...
Is Climate Change Just a Lot of Hot Air? part of CLEAN Collection
This short video illustrates how warming ocean temperature is a major factor in climate change, particularly the increase in severity of extreme weather (notably storms and drought).
El Niño and La Niña Explained part of CLEAN Collection
This short video illustrates the phenomena of El Niño and La Niña: their relationships to tradewinds and surface water temperatures, and their effects on precipitation in North America.
Understanding Sea Level Using Real Data part of CLEAN Collection
This module contains five activities, in increasing complexity, that focus on understanding how to interpret and manipulate sea level data, using real data from NOAA. Students first need to ...
If All the Ice Melted part of CLEAN Collection
This visualization is a collection of maps, by continent, that project the impact on coastlines of a 216-foot rise in sea level, which is assumed to be the result of melting all the land ice on ...
Earth: An animated map of global wind and weather part of CLEAN Collection
This animation depicts real-time wind speed and direction at selected heights above Earth's surface, ocean surface currents, and ocean surface temperatures and anomalies.
Sea Surface Temperature part of CLEAN Collection
This interactive visualization depicts sea surface temperatures (SST) and SST anomalies from 1885 to 2007. Learn all about SST and why SST data are highly valuable to ocean and atmospheric ...
Acid Test:3 Minute Science of Ocean Acidification part of CLEAN Collection
This short video is an excerpt from the longer video Acid Test: The Global Challenge of Ocean Acidification, produced by the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC). This short version summarizes ...
Wind and Ocean Circulation part of CLEAN Collection
This animated visualization was created for the planetarium film 'Dynamic Earth'. It illustrates the trail of energy that flows from atmospheric wind currents to ocean currents.
Thermal Expansion and Sea Level Rise part of CLEAN Collection
In this short but effective demonstration/experiment, students investigate how thermal expansion of water might affect sea level.
