In this activity, learners explore the concept of density-driven currents (thermohaline circulation) and how these currents are affected by climate change. Learners use colored ice cubes, water, and salt to explore density as it relates to salinity. This activity helps learners to understand the impact of glacial melt on sea level rise. (less)

Deep underneath Mexico‰ŰŞs Yucatan peninsula, underground rivers wind their way to the sea. In some places, the forest floor has fallen in, leaving holes in the ground to access these mysterious underwater caves. The holes, called cenotes, were considered openings to the underworld by the ancient Mayans. In this video, Jonathan teams up with an expert cave diver to explore these spooky underground rivers. Please see the accompanying lesson plan for educational objectives, discussion points and classroom activities. (less)

Joint US and France project, the TOPEX-Poseidon satellites continuously measures sea surface height. Oceans store and transport solar heat, helping to keep Earth's climate in balance. The overall shape of the oceans' "hills" and "valleys" is called ocean surface topography, or OST. Precise knowledge of OST is essential to predict the effects of catastrophic storms. Educational resources available for all ages and backgrounds. Outstanding animation of OTS also included. (less)

The Polar Earth Observing Network POLENET is a science program of the POLENET consortium that investigates polar geodynamics, the Earth's magnetic field, crust, mantle and core structure and dynamics, and systems-scale interactions of the solid Earth, the cryosphere, the oceans and the atmosphere. Activities will be focused on the deployment of autonomous observatories at remote sites on the continents and offshore, coordinated with measurements made at permanent stations and by satellite campaigns. Multi-disciplinary deep sea observatories on the polar seafloor will perform continuous collection of geophysical, oceanographic and geochemical data.Scientists and engineers are working together in the polar regions to understand how the earth's surface responds to the changing size of polar ice sheets. This site offers an expedition podcast, photo collections, interactive maps, and more. (less)

Learners will understand the relationship between climate change and sea-level rise. In the first activity, they will learn that heated water causes sea level to rise through a process called thermal expansion. They will also perform an experiment to learn that melting land-based ice contributes to greater sea-level rise than melting sea ice. (less)

Tsunami Warning Systems describes the processes involved in anticipating, detecting, and warning for a tsunami by summarizing data collection, modeling, analysis, and alert procedures used at NOAA's Tsunami Warning Centers. A simulated event and past tsunami occurrences are used to highlight warning system processes for determining the tsunami threat based on seismic and sea level data and tsunami forecast models. Message communication and local response are also addressed as final components of any warning system. The module is intended for Weather Forecast Office staff and emergency managers who require a better understanding of the technical aspects of tsunami warning delivery. The module will also benefit anyone wanting to learn more about the components of tsunami warning systems. (less)

This module introduces the science of tsunamis: their causes, initiation process, properties, propagation, inundation, and long-term effects. Through new animations, historical images, video, and interactive exercises, learners discover the ways tsunamis interact with and affect the world. The module is intended for Weather Forecast Office staff — particularly NWS Warning Coordination Meteorologists — who desire a better understanding of tsunamis in their role as issuers of tsunami warning-related messages. But it will also benefit anyone wanting to learn more about how tsunamis work, including emergency managers, broadcasters, college and high school students, and the general public. (less)

"Weather Observing Fundamentals" provides guidance for U.S. Navy Aerographer's Mates, Quartermasters, and civilian observers tasked with taking and reporting routine, special, and synoptic observations. Although the focus of this lesson is on shipboard observations, much of the content applies to land-based observing and reporting as well. The lesson details standard procedures for taking accurate weather observations and for encoding those observations on COMNAVMETOCCOM Report 3141/3. Exercises throughout the lesson and four weather identification drills at the end provide learners with opportunities to practice and build their skills. The lesson covers a large amount of content. You may wish to work through the material in multiple sessions. (less)
