Interesting Web Articles!

Have you ever wondered what information we can learn about our oceans from satellites? If so, you are in for a treat! Click here to check out the 'Ocean Topography from Space Website'. The latest Jason-1 data reveals dominant cool ocean conditions in the Pacific Ocean. This site also provides a discussion on the terms "Global Warming" versus "Climate Change".

Click here to check out an article about Dr. Sylvia Earle published by the New York Times on January 12, 2009. Dr. Earle is an oceanographer and former chief scientist of NOAA (National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration). She has dedicated her life to studying the marine environment and is an inspiration to us all! Dr. Earle co-authored "Ocean-An Illustrated Atlas" published by National Geographic. The Atlas has been described as "Detailing a mysterious realm that’s as vital to our existence as the air we breathe, this new atlas immerses readers in the wonders of the deep through more than 250 up-to-the-minute maps, photographs, and satellite images." (Amazon.com, 2009). I strongly encourage you to read this article and check out her photo album.
