1993 Daily Ozone from Meteor-3
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.
ISCCP Global Cloud Cover
This animated sequence is a one month sample of composited images from cloud cover data collected from a suite of U.S., European, and Japanese geostationary satellites and U.S. polar orbiting meteorological satellites. This data was composited under the auspices of ISCCP, the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Program.
AIRS Volumetric Cloud Data (Fly In)
This visualization shows Aqua-AIRS simulated volumetric cloud data for September 13, 1999. The data was created using the Finite Volume Community Climate Model (FVCCM). Temperature and cloud data sets were match rendered for cross dissolves in post production. This visualization was created as a part of the Aqua prelaunch package.

One-Sided Limits - Free Math Video by Brightstorm
A limit is the value that a function approaches as the input of that function approaches a certain value. In Calculus, sometimes functions behave differently depending on what side of the function that they are on. This video explains how a one-sided limit is the behavior on one only one side of the value where the function is undefined. (3:02)

Physics and Astronomy Professor Joe Carson Stargazing Beyond Our Solar System
In 2009, College of Charleston physics and astronomy professor Joe Carson was a leader of a team of researchers from Germany's Max Planck Institute for Astronomy that took an image of what they're calling a "planet-like object" more than 50 light years from Earth. Though scientists have been discovering planets beyond our solar system for more than a decade (about 400 exoplanets have been found), it's incredibly rare to obtain a direct image. Usually, these exoplanets are detected indirectly, su
