Videos and presentations Interactive website Viewed in satellite images as a jagged white coat draped over the top of the globe, the high Arctic appears distant and isolated. But even if you don’t live there, don’t do business there, and will never travel there, you are closer to the Arctic than you think. Arctic …
The National Research Council is pleased to present this video that explains how scientists have arrived at the state of knowledge about current climate change and its causes. For another resource on this project, take a look at our Climate Change: Lines of Evidence booklet. Click on the following links if you would like to …
Watch the briefing given at the release of two National Research Council reports, Climate Intervention: Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration, and Climate Intervention: Reflecting Sunlight to Cool Earth.
Along with its new report on advancing climate modeling, the Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate has just released Climate Modeling 101, a website designed to help the public learn more about the basics of climate modeling. The site features short videos and animations that explain everything from the difference between climate and weather to …
Ocean Acidification Here you’ll find several materials based on Ocean Acidification: A National Strategy to Meet the Challenges of a Changing Ocean (2010), including interviews with two members of the authoring committee and print-quality downloadable figures illustrating the ocean acidification process.
A new report from the National Research Council calls for a strategic national vision for reducing risk from coastal storms and flooding, the cost of which has risen dramatically over the past several decades as more people and property are in harm’s way. Currently, the nation is reactive rather than proactive, with most federal funds being used for storm response recovery, and not enough being spent on consequence reduction strategies. Learn more in this video featuring the chair of the report’s authoring committee.
As shipping and oil activities increase in the Arctic, so does the risk of an oil spill. This video highlights the current state of science and engineering for responding to oil spills in Arctic waters.
This video was produced to summarize and explain the findings of the report, Sea-Level Rise for the Coasts of California, Oregon, and Washington: Past, Present, and Future.
This video highlights research questions that are emerging as the Arctic transitions to a “new normal” of reduced ice and snow.
