Understanding Oceans

There is a vast and mysterious world just offshore. A place of undiscovered species, cures for deadly diseases and keys to the weather. It’s dangerous and threatening and at the same time beautiful and appealing. Are the ice caps melting? Is the planet getting hotter? Will sea levels rise?

The answer to many global warming questions lie in the sea. Understanding Oceans investigates the ocean’s currents, winds and weather systems. We demonstrate ‘The Great Conveyor Belt’, the circular process of warm water moving north, sinking in the Atlantic and then returning back to the equator.
