This radio broadcast reports on the Hidden Ocean cruise, a one-month expedition to catalog what lives in the Arctic ocean and which of these organisms is at risk. The broadcast describes experiments to gather organisms from below drilled ice, from freshwater pools created from melted ice, and at the bottom of the ocean collected from a trawl net. Many of the organisms described depend on the sea ice ... Full description.

This lesson introduces random sampling, one of the key concepts employed by scientists to study the natural environment, including microbial communities. Students first learn about the abundance and diversity of marine microbes. Colored beads in a bag are then used to represent different types of microbes, with the bag itself representing the ocean. Working in groups, each student randomly samples ... Full description.
