The Ocean's Role in Weather and Climate

All web seminar participants use online tools that allow them to mark-up presenter's slides or share desktop applications in addition to engaging in chat with others online and answering poll questions. Two web seminars on the interconnections among air, sea, and land; the processes by which energy is stored, released and transferred among them; and how our ability to understand and monitor ocean conditions is key to predicting climate change took place with NOAA scientists and education specialist. Dr. Thomas Delworth was the presenter for this seminar; a scientist with NOAA he specializes climate variability. Dr. Don Perovich was presenter for the second seminar in this series. His focus was on the role of sea ice in the global climate system. These seminars are designed for educators of 5-12 grade levels.
