Ocean Literacy Principle 3: The Ocean Influences Weather and Climate
Did you know that oceans influence our weather and climate? The ocean has had, and will continue to have, a significant influence on climate change by absorbing, storing, and moving heat, carbon and water. Learning about the ocean is key as as any changes to these crucial processes impact the climate we all depend on! This teaching animation is based on The Ocean Literacy Framework, developed by many scientists and educators from the ocean sciences education community. This project was supported by funding from the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.
