CAM plants are usually desert plants because of them having their stomata closed during the daytime due to water shortage. At night, CAM plants have their stomata open and fix carbon dioxide into mallate, where the CAM plant can use the mallate as carbon dioxide to perform photosynthesis. This 8:37 video uses a narrator and a smart board to explain the process.

Modeled Arctic Sea Ice Thickness from 1940 through 2060: View #5
Part of the ongoing research into polar ice trends encompasses evaluation from sophisticated computer models. At the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University, run by NASAs sibling agency, NOAA, researchers modeled a 5,000 year period to see how polar ice might behave over time depending on several different variables. This visualization shows a 120-year slice of that complete model, essentially offering a research window on to experimental processes that require longer time
