The Earth Scientist, Volume XXVI, Issue 1, Spring 2010


This very special issue of The Earth Scientist (our biggest ever!) is sponsored by the Cooperative Institute for Climate and Ocean Research at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and is focused on the world's oceans. The articles, by teachers, scientists, and science educators from across the country, cover a range of topics - polar research, coral reefs, ocean acidification, air-sea interactions, climate research, the Census of Marine Life, ocean drilling, and information on cutting edge observatory initiatives. The issue contains a gorgeous full color, 2'x6' poster developed by the University of Washington's Center for Environmental Visualization illustrating ocean processes and observatories.
