135 Years of Global Ocean Warming
A new study comparing past and present ocean temperatures reveals the global ocean has been warming for more than a century. Join Dean Roemmich, Scripps physical oceanographer and study co-author, as he describes how warm our oceans are getting, where all that heat is going, and how this knowledge will help scientists better understand the earth's climate. Learn how scientists measured ocean temperature during the historic voyage of the HMS Challenger (1872-76) and how today's network of ocean-probing robots is changing the way scientists study the seas.

|Climate Change and Our Oceans
How are oceans affected by our rapidly changing climate? What can they tell us about the processes controlling climate change? And what role do they play in driving climate?
|The Role of Oceans in Climate
Amala Mahadevan explains the vital role of the oceans in climate and climate change, and the challenge of developing accurate models for this dynamic relationship.
|Ocean Acidification: Can Corals Cope?
Join Scripps marine biologist Martin Tresguerres as he describes research into the potential impact of ocean acidification on corals, and the mechanisms these amazing marine animals use to try to cope with the problem.
|Acidifying the Ocean: Assessing Impacts on Coral Reefs
Andreas Andersson explains the basics of ocean acidification and how his research is allowing him to monitor the function and health of coral reef systems as the ocean changes.
|Blue Planet: Introduction to Oceanography
