Understanding Oceans

"Highly Recommended. This program describes our current knowledge of ocean science, and profiles the scientific process as it applies to oceanography; it delivers an accurate picture of modern oceanography and illustrates how each of these scientific disciplines adds to our knowledge of ocean life and ocean circulation; it includes excellent footage and viewers will enjoy the spectacular shots of hydrothermal vent and bioluminescent deep-sea fauna." -EMRO Review
"Recommended. An excellent video to give students a first-hand look at scientists at work, equipment they use, and work place environments." -School Library Journal
The world's oceans affect all our lives. They control our weather, provide much of our food, and supply important minerals and sources of energy. This program explores the many scientific disciplines involved in discovering the way the oceans work and govern our lives. The program features rare archive film of past attempts to discover the secrets the oceans hold, together with exciting new research into the ocean bed, the creatures that dwell there and the way their lives can provide solutions to problems affecting our own environment. 03/08DE IJSCA 30 min.
