Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet

Source:  The Scout Report — Volume 22, Number 16

“NASA’ s Global Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet website features a diverse set of resources related to the measurement, analysis, and dangers of global climate change. Here readers will find a collection of Interactive Features all designed to bring to life the sometimes abstract conclusions of scientific articles on climate and its effects on human and other life on Earth. For example, the Climate Time Machine allows readers to go backward and forward through four different key climate indicators, including Sea Ice, Sea Level, Carbon Dioxide, and Global Temperature. Perfect for educators who are looking for impactful visual representations of the rising temperatures on the planet, the interactive makes these measurements visceral in a way that charts and graphs are seldom able to do. Other interactives on the page include the Global Ice Viewer, Quizzes, The Sun: A Virtual Tour, The Water Cycle, and others. [CNH]”

JoVE to include: Neuroscience and Immunology & infectious Diseases


“The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE), the first video journal for biological sciences, is delighted to announce the 2011 launch of two new specialized content sections – Neuroscience and Immunology & Infectious Diseases.


JoVE is a peer reviewed methods video journal indexed in MEDLINE, PubMed and Chemical Abstracts that was launched in 2006.  A unique tool in scholarly communication, JoVE has opened up a new frontier in educational research by the systematic publication of video demonstrations in biological fields.”
