5 The contemporary Arctic climate
What affects the atmospheric and ocean flows? This unit explores the mechanisms that are important; the most rapid carrier is the wind. The basic principle of global atmospheric circulation is simple: warm air rises and cold air sinks. How does this principle affect the atmosphere and flow of water in practical terms?

Through making participatory videos, the children explored how they and their families are being affected, what they are doing to cope and what they would need to protect their homes, schools and livelihoods. This film brings children’s voices to the climate change debate and conveys powerful messages to policy makers shaping

Ocean Circulation and Climate: Observing and Modelling the Global Ocean
The oceans are a critical component of the climate system, storing roughly 1000 times as much heat, and 50 times as much carbon, as the atmosphere. In this talk, Professor David Marshall (21st Century Ocean Institute, University of Oxford) will discuss the challenges of predicting the evolution of a complex system that is grossly under-sampled and spans a bewildering range of scales in both space and time. These challenges will be illustrated through the important but over-sensationalised proble
