WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 (UPI) — The U.S. space agency says it’s celebrating Earth Science Week by releasing five short educational videos under the theme “Understanding Climate.”
This year’s theme for Earth Science Week, which runs through Saturday, was selected by the American Geological Institute.
The NASA video series entitled “Tides of Change” focuses on the ocean-climate connection, with each video featuring a specific aspect of that connection, such as the water cycle or life in the ocean.
“At NASA every week is Earth science week as scientists continue to learn about our changing planet and what drives those changes,” the space agency said. “A world of Earth science exploration is all at your fingertips and on-line at www.nasa.gov any day of the week, not just Earth Science Week.”
The NASA videos are available at http://climate.nasa.gov/esw/videoseries/.
