Tour NASA's New Climate Reel

Sunday, November 29, 2009
We’re less than two weeks away from the United Nation’s long awaited Copenhagen Climate Change Conference. In anticipation of the event, NASA has compiled a climate resource reel that highlights ten of its most compelling climate videos and visualizations.

Video topics range from a 3-D tour of the Earth’s rapidly changing cryosphere, and the unexpected role that honey bees can play as climate data collectors, to NASA’s efforts to understand the ozone layer.

Two of the videos offer details about NASA's new climate satellite Glory. One of them discusses Glory's Total Irradiance Monitor, a sensor that will help monitor the sun's fluctuations. The other -- titled Hello Crud -- delves into the perplexing world of airborne particles called aerosols.

You can see all ten of the top picks at NASA’s Global Climate Change website. Additional climate-related videos and animations are available through NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio.
