COSEE-NOW Online Presentation: Antarctica Melting - A Story in Four Acts

COSEE NOW is pleased to present: Antarctica Melting: A Story in Four Acts, a four-part audio slideshow series on the fastest winter warming place on Earth, as seen through the eyes of three scientists. Produced by COSEE NOW's own Ari Daniel Shapiro, the slideshows provide a first hand look into the role that global climate change has had in transforming the Antarctic ecosystem.

Bridge DATA: Coral Snapshots

While it is possible to survey a coral reef using quadrats, scientists are now using technology to closely examine the entire reef; instead of extrapolating results from several study sites. Scientists at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science are taking video of reefs and then analyzing it via a computer program back in the lab. This method cuts down on the inherent error associated with the quadrat system and actually requires less time and money spent in the field.

The Bridge's own DATA Series is made up of lesson plans (DATA Tips) on many ocean science topics that explore the world of water using the language of science: mathematics. Learn more about the DATA Series.
