1992 Daily Ozone from Nimbus-7
In this animation of total ozone, the luminance values of the colors bounding areas of missing data are used in interpolating over these regions. The missing data are mapped to the grayscale portion of the color map.
Hurricanes as Heat Engines
As water vapor evaporates from the warm ocean surface, it is forced upward in the convective clouds that surround the eyewall and rainband regions of a storm. As the water vapor cools and condenses from a gas back to a liquid state, it releases latent heat. The release of latent heat warms the surrounding air, making it lighter and thus promoting more vigorous cloud development.
Hurricane Hernan, September 1, 2002
Hurricane Hernan located 625 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Hernan has maximum sustained winds of 130 knots with gusts to 160 knots. The overall structure of the storm is shown in this animation with rain amounts being shown through color. Yellow represents 0.5 inches of rain or more, green shows 1.0 inches of rain and red shows 2.0 inches or more.
El Nino Sea Surface Temperature, Height, and Wind Anomalies: January 1997 through October 1998
Sea surface height anomaly (SSH) for January 1997 to October 1998. A 3-D straight-on view with arrows showing sea surface wind anomalies.
El Nino-La Nina Sea Surface Temperature, Height, and Wind Anomalies: January 1997 through December 1
This animation shows the onset of the very strong 1997 El Nino, followed by its collapse and replacement by La Nina. Anomalously warm waters slosh across the Pacific in late 1997 as El Nino begins and the equatorial trade winds diminish in strength. In May 1998, the El Nino event disperses and is rapidly replaced by its reciprocal phenomenon, La Nina, with anomalously cold water along the eastern equatorial Pacific and a reversal of the wind flow patterns.
Global Ozone from 2000 through 2003 (WMS)
This visualization shows the total ozone concentrations for the Earth from January 1, 2000 through December 31, 2003. Low ozone (less than 200 Dobson units) is depicted as regions of dark blue, with high ozone (greater that 330 Dobson units) depicted as yellow and red. The most visible and dynamic feature of the ozone distribution is the ozone hole that forms over Antarctica during September of each year. The amount of ozone in the stratosphere over Antarctica is reduced during this period due t

Differentiation of Trilaminar Disc
In the context of a cross section between the amniotic cavity and yolk sac, the trilaminar germ disc develops a neural tube, somites, dermatomes, myotomes, sclerotomes, coelom, gut and vitelline duct. The animation displays the differentiation of multiple structures from the trilaminar disc.
Black wasps seek out aphids and inject their eggs into their bodies to bring the victims a slow and painful way. This two minute video shows the process. This is the opening video on the page.
Information and Service Design Symposium
The UC Berkeley School of Information hosts a symposium to launch the new Information and Service Design (ISD) program at the I School. The symposium features the best graduate student papers on the Information and Services Economy. Introducing the ISD Program and the Symposium AnnaLee Saxenian, Dean, School of Information Bob Glushko, Adjunct Professor, School of Information Christo Sims - Defining Services for Designers This paper is part of a larger effort to improve methodologies for servic

Animal Studies: Fish
Fish are vertebrates, meaning they have a skeletal system to support their bodies. All fish live underwater. Fish have gills to help them breathe underwater and fins to help them swim. Most fish are cold-blooded, meaning their body temperature is regulated by the surrounding water temperature.

Mental Status Exam: Normal Exam: Orientation, Memory
Asking questions about month, date, day of week and place tests orientation, which involves not only memory but also attention and language. 3-word recall tests recent memory for which the temporal lobe is important. Remote memory tasks such as naming Presidents, test not only the temporal lobes but also heteromodal association cortices. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relate
