Grade 10 / Topic: Energy Flow In Global System
Let us wear our sun glasses and fasten our seats to explore the solar energy that sustains life and drives the global climate systems on earth. If you are interested in Earth’s climate; and Earth’s atmosphere we invite you to watch “OUR LIVING CLIMATE” movie, or you have the choice to watch “Dynamic Earth” movie to explores the global climate and the energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate. Whatever is your choice that will be followed by science talk and question/answer period.
OUR LIVING CLIMATE
Our Living Climate examines climate change throughout the Earth’s history. It looks closely at our planet’s place in the solar system, how our climate first evolved and how it has been transformed by weather patterns, Ice Ages and the appearance of new life forms. Floods or droughts, rain or shine, hot or cold; it all occurs within the remarkably thin veneer spanning the Earth – the Atmosphere.
A dramatic and different way of looking at climate and climate change, this visually spectacular story is about the greatest scientific challenge of our time.
RUNNING TIME: 28:00 minutes
SUBJECTS COVERED: Climate Changes, Human better or worse Impact on Climate.
Dynamic Earth, explores the inner workings of Earth’s climate system. With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and biosphere. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes
RUNNING TIME: 24:00 minutes
SUBJECTS COVERED: Impact of energy Sources on the Climate, Earth-Sun System, Plate Tectonics, Carbon Cycle.
