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 - Ghostbusting the Chesapeake

Even when crab pots are lost or abandoned at sea, they continue to catch animals. The unintended victims of the pots typically cannot escape, and are trapped until they die. Through a special program at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, scientists are working with watermen to collect derelict, or “ghost,” crab pots and fishing nets that have been lost or abandoned. Students will explore catch data collected by the watermen from the ghost pots.

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.
