Dating Lava Flows on Mauna Loa Volcano, Hawaii
For hundreds of thousands of years, lava flows have created intricate patterns on the slopes of Hawaiʻi's Mauna Loa volcano. Until the mid-1970s, it was impossible to know when each of the flows occurred. However, as this video segment adapted from NOVA describes, scientists are now using tiny artifacts of life encased in hardened lava flows to piece together the mountain's complex geological and biological history. Closed captioning included.  Run time 04:36.

Biome in a Bag
The distribution of plants and animals around the world corresponds closely to global patterns of temperature and rainfall. This is why two forests half a world away from each other will often have very similar organisms living in them. In this ZOOMSci video segment, a cast member of ZOOM creates a self-contained biome and explores evaporation, condensation and precipitation.
