Laura D'Andrea Tyson, S.K. and Angela Chan Professor of Global Management, Haas School of Business, on what we can learn from emerging markets
For certain life forms on Earth, conditions that humans and other familiar organisms find hospitable can actually be deadly. Instead of a moderate climate with an atmosphere rich in nitrogen and oxygen, these organisms thrive in very hot or very cold temperatures, or in caves or deep waters where no light penetrates. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, scientists analyze communities of cave-dwelling microbes that live off simple inorganic compounds like iron and sulfur. Based on their findi
Nicholas Stern is IG Patel professor of economics and government at LSE and chairman of the ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy.
Detailed video explaining the rainforest biome. Gives an explanation of what is found in the rainforest. Only 6% of the Earth's surface is covered by rainforest. This video shows the climate that a rainforest has, the location of rainforest and the two different kinds of rainforest, tropical rainforest and temperate rainforest, and where they can be found. Run time 03:39.
Professor Hugh Montgomery (Director, UCL Institute for Human Health and Performance) has interests beyond his groundbreaking research at UCL-- he is also helping to shape the way children view the issue of climate change through Project Genie. Originally conceived of as a storybook to teach schoolchildren about climate change, Project Genie has evolved into an animated film and a curriculum for use in schools. http://www.projectgenie.org.uk/
An introduction to climate and vegetation in world regional geography. IU Southeast Instructor: Clint Franklin
This Is The Full Version Of The Pi Pi Mathematical Pi Song! Written by Antoni Chan and Ken Ferrier. Note, this is not mine.
This video clip is about Biomes: Deciduous Forests. It is a student made movie with information about deciduous forests: animals found in the deciduous forests, types of trees found, climate and seasons. 4:28
Richard Lamb gives an introduction to the history of climate projections in the UK, he also describes the different levels of information available to organisations and individuals through UKCP 09
Part 1 of 3. The video The Southern Appalachians: A Changing World describes the Southern Appalachian Mountains and how the geologic events that took place millions of years ago influenced the landscape, climate, soils, and living things that can be seen there today. Spanning a vast area from Virginia to Georgia, the Southern Appalachians are some of the oldest mountains on Earth. Molded and shaped over eons by volcanism, erosion, glaciation, and other geologic forces, these mountains are known
This is a segment from the Ocean Odyssey series that describes in layman's terms what surface currents are, what role they have in the creation of climate, and how they form. Produced for students and is suitable for elementary and older.
(This is an Emmy award-winning series of instructional programs that introduces students in grades 3-5 to NASA and integrates mathematics, science, and technology through the use of Problem-Based Learning (PBL), scientific inquiry, and the scientific
For many scientists, having the opportunity to work in Antarctica is a dream come true. Its remoteness and extreme environment make it, arguably, the most untouched region on the planet. Today, more than 20 nations maintain research facilities there under a treaty that dedicates the entire continent to peaceful scientific investigation. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, see how the members of one research team cope with the inhospitable climate and other environmental hazards during their
In this short documentary you can explore the global impact of climate change and its devastating effects. Learn what scientists suggest in response to these changes. Run time 07:43
Changes in amphibian populations may offer clues to changes in our climate. In the Rock Mountains scientists spend their summers studying wind, weather, plant life and amphibians. The salamander population in this area fluctuates year to year and they are trying to determine if this decline is caused by global warming or humans. Run time 03:14.
Snowflakes are actually a history of what was happening in the atmosphere as the snowflake formed and fell to the ground. Find out how you can help NASA scientists study different types of snowflakes to learn about the atmosphere and changes in climate. (04:15)
This episode segment from NASA Connect explains the difference between weather and climate. The segment explores what factors determine weather and how climate is affected by the weather. Run time 04:36.
Discusses what makes up geography; land, water, people and their lives and how land and water affect them. Geography also includes climate. Climate is the weather pattern in a region of the world over a long period of time. One of the major factors affecting our climate is the Sun. The way the Earth moves around the Sun affects the climate. This video discusses rotation, revolution, year, axis, hemisphere, latitude, lines of latitude, and equator. This video discusses what causes the different c
One of Bill Nye's music videos about weather and climate. The song, with quick lyrics and catch tune, briefly addresses the various climates in the desert, tropical rainforest, tundra, and temperate forest. Run time 1:37
The discussion Why study the magnetosphere at the poles? is continued by Shin-ichiro Oyama – STEL, Nagoya who notes that there are more dramatic changes at the poles, e.g., the aurora. He is intrigued by the many things still to be explored and the beauty of the Northern climate. Run time 01:23.
