Most scientists agree that human activities are causing the global climate to heat up. However, in this radio broadcast, two scientists from Alaska explain how nature still has a big say in how much the Arctic heats up and that recent warming is part of a natural cycle, occurring over thousands of years. The clip from 2005 is 3 minutes and 54 seconds in length. Full description.

This page features videos from the "Hot Planet- Cold Comfort" television episode, related website articles and a student activity. The videos explore how the Gulf Stream conveyor belt may shut down; how Arctic river runoff and Alaskan glacial melt are freshening the oceans; and how ocean sediments and ice cores are being studied to understand the Little Ice Age. The videos total approximately one ... Full description.

This animated model shows the predicted effects of glacial melting and changes in vegetation patterns in the Blackfoot-Jackson Glacier Basin of Glacier National Park, Montana. The scenario incorporated in the model consists of a predicted exponential rise in atmospheric CO2 concentrations, a 2xCO2 global warming scenario, with a concurrent warming of 2-3 degrees centigrade (4-5 degrees Fahrenheit) ...

In this unit, students explore how scientists study climates of the past by modelling their methods through inquiry activities and investigating real data. The lessons address the difference between weather and climate, direct and indirect evidence of climate change, and natural indicators of climate such as tree rings. They will also examine what conditions were like in the 'Little Ice Age', a period ... Full description.

Global Warming Art is an effort to collect and produce compelling graphs, figures and photos that accurately display scientific information relevant to the climate change debate. Emphasis is given to the consensus views held by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other major research organizations. One of the guiding principles of Global Warming Art is that this information should ... Full description.

Climate-related resources useful to coastal managers currently can be found in a variety of sources. Unfortunately, these sources are scattered in different locations, making access difficult and time-consuming. This site was developed to improve access to climate resources for managers in the Pacific Islands region. Originally designed to meet the needs of decision makers in Samoa and American Samoa, ...

Ocean FEST is a program of hands-on, ocean-themed science activities for students in grades 3-6 and/or their families. Our goals are to: (1) educate participants about ocean and earth science issues that are relevant to their communities; and (2) inspire students--especially those from underrepresented groups--to pursue careers in the ocean and earth sciences. This activity has students, after a discussion ... Full description.
