Ocean Temperatures and Climate Patterns

Summary:
This animation from The New Media Studio explains precipitation patterns by illustrating how differences in ocean surface temperatures create wind, and how wind patterns can in turn affect ocean surface temperatures.

Drilling to Antarctica

Summary:
In this video adapted from ANDRILL, find out how geoscientists get through more than a dozen football fields of ice and water in order to study the rock and sediment beneath Antarctica.

Earth System: Ice and Global Warming

Summary:
This video segment adapted from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center details how global warming may already be responsible for a significant reduction in glacial ice, which may in turn have significant consequences for the planet.

Coal Tramway

Summary:
In this Building Block video, coal carts move along an elevated tramway as smokestacks spew smoke in the background.

An Alaska Native Community Helps Seals

Summary:
In this video segment from First Alaskans Institute, learn about northern fur seals (laaqudan), their importance to the Alaska Native diet, and how the community of St. Paul Island participates in their conservation and protection.

Close-up of Oil Rig Pumping
