The ocean covers 70% of our planet. The deep-sea floor is a realm that is largely unexplored, but cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to go deeper than ever before. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Beneath the waves is a mysterious world that takes up to 95% of Earth's living space. Only three people have ever reached the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean. The deep is a world without sunlight, of freezing temperatures, and immense pressure. It's remained largely unexplored until now. Cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to explore deeper than ever before. They are opening up a whole new world of potential benefits to humanity. The risks are great, but the rewards could be greater. From a vast wealth of resources to clues about the origins of life, the race is on to the final frontier The Okeanos Explorer, the American government state-of-the-art vessel, designed for every type of deep ocean exploration from discovering new species to investigating shipwrecks. On board, engineers and scientists come together to answer questions about the origins of life and human history. Today the Okeanos is on a mission to investigate the wreck of a World War one submarine. Engineer Bobby Moore is part of a team who has developed the technology for this type of mission. The “deep discover”, a remote operating vehicle is equipped with 20 powerful LED lights and designed to withstand the huge pressure four miles down. Equivalent to 50 jumbo jets stacked on top of a person While the crew of the Okeanos send robots to investigate the deep, some of their fellow scientists prefer a more hands-on approach. Doctor Greg stone is a world leading marine biologist with over 8,000 hours under the sea. He has been exploring the abyss in person for 30 years. The technology opening up the deep is also opening up opportunity. Not just to witness the diversity of life but to glimpse vast amounts of rare mineral resources. Some of the world's most valuable metals can be found deep under the waves. A discovery that has begun to pique the interest of the global mining industry. The boldest of mining companies are heading to the deep drawn by the allure of a new Gold Rush. But to exploit it they're also beating a path to another strange new world. In an industrial estate in the north of England, SMD is one of the world's leading manufacturers of remote underwater equipment. The industrial technology the company has developed has made mining possible several kilometers beneath the ocean surface. With an estimated 150 trillion dollars’ worth of gold alone, deep-sea mining has the potential to transform the global economy. With so much still to discover, mining in the deep ocean could have unknowable impact. It's not just life today that may need protecting; reaching the deep ocean might just allow researchers to answer some truly fundamental questions. Hydrothermal vents, hot springs on the ocean floor, are cracks in the Earth's crust. Some claim they could help scientists glimpse the origins of life itself. We might still be years away from unlocking the mysteries of the deep. Even with the latest technology, this kind of exploration is always challenging. As the crew of the Okeanos comes to terms with a scale of the challenge and the opportunity that lies beneath, what they and others discover could transform humanity's understanding of how to protect the ocean. It's the most hostile environment on earth, but the keys to our future may lie in the deep.

Breathtaking... Nearly 20 years after first finding the sunken remains of the R.M.S. Titanic, marine explorer Robert Ballard returned in June 2004, helped by the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration to study the ship's rapid deterioration. The Titanic team worked aboard NOAA Ship Ronald H. Brown from May 30 through June 9, spending 11 days at the wreck site, mapping the ship and conducting scientific analysis of its deterioration. The team used Institute for Exploration (IFE) remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) Hercules and Argus to conduct a sophisticated documentation of the state of Titanic was not possible in the 1980s. This "look, don't touch" mission used high-definition video and stereoscopic still images to provide an updated assessment of the wreck site at a depth of 3,840 meters (12,600 feet). As the nation's ocean agency, NOAA has a vested interest in the scientific and cultural aspects of the Titanic and in its appropriate treatment and preservation. NOAA's focus is to build a baseline of scientific information from which we can measure the shipwreck's processes and deterioration, and then apply the knowledge we gain to other deepwater shipwrecks and submerged cultural resources.

Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years. What is the future of seabed mining? And what are the consequences of seabed mining for the marine ecosystems?

One of life’s great mysteries, the Bermuda Triangle might have finally found an explanation. This strange region that lies in the North Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda, Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico has been the presumed cause of dozens and dozens of mind-boggling disappearances of ships and planes. The Bermuda Triangle lore includes such stories as that of Flight 19, a group of 5 U.S. torpedo bombers that vanished in the Triangle in 1945. A rescue plane sent to look for them also disappeared. Other stories include the mystery of USS Cyclops, resulting in the largest non-combat loss of life in U.S. Navy’s history. The ship with a crew of 309 went missing in 1918. Even as recently as 2015, El Faro, a cargo ship with 33 on board vanished in the area. Altogether, as far as we know, 75 planes and hundreds of ships met their demise in the Bermuda Triangle. Possible causes for the catastrophes have been proposed over time, ranging from the paranormal, electromagnetic interference that causes compass problems, bad weather, the Gulf Stream, and large undersea fields of methane. Now, a new theory has been proposed by meteorologists that claims that the reason for the mysteries pervading the Bermuda Triangle area are unusual hexagonal clouds creating 170 mph air bombs full of wind. These air pockets cause all the mischief, sinking ships and downing planes.

Over 72% of the earth is covered with water called Oceans and Seas There are five major Oceans of the world, and although these Oceans are all connected, they each have a different name. They are; The Pacific Ocean…the Atlantic Ocean…the Indian Ocean…The Southern Ocean (also called the Antarctic Ocean) …and the Arctic Ocean. Here are some specific facts about each ocean. Pacific Ocean: Located between the continents of Asia, N./S. America & Australia ~The largest of the 5 oceans, covers 30% of the Earth’s surface. ~ The word Pacific means peaceful, but the ocean is not calm or peaceful. ~ Many volcanoes are located in the ocean: The “Ring of Fire”. ~ The deepest part is nearly 7 miles below the surface. ~ The Great Barrier Reef is located off the Australian coast. Atlantic Ocean: Located between the continents America, Europe, and Africa ~ About half the size of the Pacific Ocean ~ Many sharks are found in the waters of the ocean. ~ Islands located in the Atlantic include the Bahamas and Greenland, which is the largest island on Earth. ~ The word Atlantic means “Sea of Atlas”. ~ Cities on the Atlantic Ocean include Miami and London. Indian Ocean: Located between Africa, Australia and parts of Asia ~ Largest breeding grounds of the world for humpback whales. ~ The Suez Canal in Egypt is a waterway in the ocean. ~ Cities along the ocean include Mumbai, India; Perth, Australia; and Singapore. ~ Many endangered species live here such as turtles and seals. Arctic Ocean: Located around the North Pole across the Arctic circle ~ Home to many of the Polar Bears of the world. ~ Smallest ocean and most shallow, but is the coldest. ~ Sometimes called the “frozen ocean”, almost completely covered in ice during the winter, ~ There are more fish species here than anywhere else in the world. Southern Ocean: Located around the South Pole across the Antarctic circle ~ Home to the Emperor Penguins and Wandering Albatrosses ~ Sometimes it is also called the Antarctic Ocean ~ Icebergs are found throughout the Southern Ocean ~ No people live along the coast of the ocean Thank you for following Clarendon Learning.

They still look beautiful, but coral reefs are dying at staggering rates — experts project that 90 percent of the world's reefs will be gone by 2050. But a growing group of scientists around the world are searching for innovative solutions to make sure that doesn't happen. Coral reefs are among the earth’s most precious natural resources. They harbor a million species and provide food for 500 million people around the world. But warming waters, pollution and overfishing have badly damaged these precious ecosystems; roughly 50 percent of the world’s corals have been lost in just the last 30 years. “The rates of change in our environment are far outpacing the intrinsic capacity of coral reefs to survive.” said Dr. Ruth Gates, the Director of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, where she is pioneering research that could help corals survive. “If we don’t mitigate at all, coral reefs will not be the things we’re worrying about, it will be the survival of our species.” Dr. Gates is just one of the scientists devising innovative ways to take coral reef restoration into their own hands. Her lab has started to breed and distribute, "super coral" — the strongest breeds of coral that can thrive in warmer environments. And in Curaçao, a small coral rich island in the Caribbean Sea, a team of scientists are finalizing a technology that could distribute fertilized coral eggs across the ocean, repopulating reefs worldwide.

Join the conversation with #OceanSeeding In only the last 60 years we have seen the accelerated decline of the ocean environment. The demand for marine resources rises as the world population increases, which has stressed the ocean to collapse in some regions. We need new technologies that can heal the ocean; focused in the small-scale and short-term. The key is iron, it is essential for plant-like plankton, and required in exceptionally low concentrations. Only a cup of iron can revitalize a whole hectare of the ocean. It works because iron is a catalyst for photosynthesis. Iron is a metal, vital for all life on Earth, but exceedingly rare in the ocean because it rusts and sinks. Climate change and ocean warming are making iron even more scarce, driving plankton health to decline faster. Revitalizing plankton has a ripple effect on the marine ecosystem as they provide nutrients to the fish that depend on them for food. Ocean Seeding is a new technology that can catalyze the ocean back to health, recover fish stocks and ensure sustainability for the growing populations of the world. ----- Learn more at http://OceanSeeding.com ----- Hicimos una versión del video en Español: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FktBMgssn88 Video produced by Oceaneos: http://oceaneos.org Animation by Fluorfilms: http://fluorfilms.com Music by Kyle Gabler: http://kylegabler.com ----- About the collapse of ocean fisheries ----- Seafood may be gone by 2048: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2006/11/061102-seafood-threat.html Decreasing fish stocks: http://wwf.panda.org/what_we_do/endangered_species/cetaceans/threats/fishstocks/ Documenting fisheries impacts in ecosystems: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17626465 Loss of ecosystem services: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/314/5800/787 Global marine yield halved: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1467-2979.2012.00483.x/abstract Rapid worldwide depletion of fish: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v423/n6937/abs/nature01610.html Changing capacity in fish stocks: http://www.pnas.org/content/113/1/134.abstract Study predicts collapse of all seafood: http://news.stanford.edu/news/2006/november8/ocean-110806.html Unsustainable fishing: http://wwf.panda.org/about_our_earth/blue_planet/problems/problems_fishing/ World review of fisheries: http://www.fao.org/docrep/013/i1820e/i1820e01.pdf ----- Climate change and decline in plankton ----- Plankton population drops since 1950: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/phytoplankton-population/ NASA study shows oceanic plankton decline: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/nasa-study-shows-oceanic-phytoplankton-declines-in-northern-hemisphere The changing ocean iron cycle: http://www.nature.com/nclimate/journal/v6/n12/full/nclimate3147.html Recent trends in plankton composition: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2015GB005139/full Plankton and food energy flows: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0079661113001079 Climate change and marine plankton: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0169534705000650 Fisheries catch and ocean productivity: http://www.pnas.org/content/114/8/E1441.abstract Iron storage in bloom-forming plankton: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v457/n7228/abs/nature07539.html The land, air and sea system: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12626273 Dissolved iron in the world ocean: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0304420397000431 Plankton decline over the past century: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v466/n7306/full/nature09268.html The footprint of climate change: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/354/6313/aaf7671 ----- Sustainability and Ocean Seeding technology ----- Massive bloom induced by iron experiment: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v383/n6600/abs/383495a0.html Iron limitation in the Pacific Ocean: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v383/n6600/abs/383508a0.html Plankton and the warming ocean: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/gcb.12562/abstract Fraser river massive salmon return: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/pink-salmon-reaching-fraser-river-in-massive-numbers/article14298697/ Kasatochi volcano and the 2010 salmon return: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2419.2012.00630.x/abstract Iron efficiency in ocean fertilization: http://www.rug.nl/research/portal/publications/efficiency-of-carbon-removal-per-added-iron-in-ocean-iron-fertilization(3afd7612-cb67-4290-8d6f-21e9d8a4c109)/export.html Iron experiments from 1993 to 2005: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/315/5812/612 The Korean 2016 to 2020 iron fertilization experiment: http://www.biogeosciences-discuss.net/bg-2016-472/ Plankton coping with accelerating climate change: http://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms14434 Rebuilding global fisheries: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/325/5940/578

S.O.S.! Can fishing actually lead to a healthier ecosystem? Saving our oceans & seas is important to all of us. A healthy ecosystem matters. But how can we best do that and balance the needs of humans as well? Thirty years ago, New Zealand’s fisheries – along with much of the rest of the world’s – were on the brink of disaster. Overfishing led to declining fish populations. Something had to change. The result? The Quota Management System, or QMS. Today commercial fishing off New Zealand provides fish for consumers worldwide, an excellent livelihood for fishers, and a stronger, healthier ocean and fish population. How does it work? Come to New Zealand with scholar Johan Norberg and find out!

An animated infographic depicting China’s territorial disputes. Is China trying to expand its territory? Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 ONE reason China’s spectacular rise sometimes alarms its neighbours is that it is not a status quo power. From its inland, western borders to its eastern and southern seaboard, it claims territory it does not control. In the west, China’s border dispute with India is more than a minor cartographic tiff. China claims an area of India that is three times the size of Switzerland, the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Further west, China occupies Indian claimed territory next to Ladakh in Kashmir, an area called the Aksai Chin. China humiliated India in a brief, bloody war over the dispute in 1962. Since 1988, the two countries have put the dispute on the backburner and got on with developing commercial ties, despite occasional flare-ups. More immediately dangerous is the stand-off between China and Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in Chinese. Japan says they have always been its territory and admits no dispute, claiming also that China only started expressing an interest when it began to seem the area might be rich in oil and gas. A new and much more dangerous phase of the dispute began in 2012 after Japan’s government nationalised three of the islands by buying them from their private owner. China accused Japan of breaking an understanding not to change the islands’ status. Ever since, it has been challenging not just Japan’s claim to sovereignty over the islands, but its claim to control them, sending Chinese ships and planes to patrol them. Raising the stakes is Japan’s alliance with America, which says that though it takes no position on who owns the islands, they are covered by its defence treaty with Japan, since it administers them. Especially provocative to America and Japan was China’s unilateral announcement in November 2013 of an Air-defence Identification Zone, covering the islands. The worry is less that big powers will deliberately go to war over these desolate little rocks, but that an accidental collision at sea or in the air might escalate unforeseeably. Similar fears cloud disputes in the South China Sea, where the maritime claims in South-East Asia are even more complex, and, again, competition is made more intense by speculation about vast potential wealth in hydrocarbon resources. Vietnam was incensed in May 2014 when China moved a massive oil-rig to drill for two months in what it claimed as its waters. This was near the Paracel Islands, controlled by China since it evicted the former South Vietnamese from them in 1974. To the south, China and Vietnam also claim the Spratly archipelago, as does Taiwan, whose claim in the sea mirrors China’s. But the Philippines also has a substantial claim. Malaysia and even tiny Brunei also have an interest. But it is with Vietnam and the Philippines that China’s disputes are most active. The Philippines accuses China of salami-slicing tactics, stealthily expanding its presence in disputed waters. In 1995 it evicted the Philippines from Mischief Reef, and in 2012 from Scarborough Shoal. This year it has tried to stop the Philippines from resupplying a small garrison it maintains on the Second Thomas Shoal, and appears to be building an airstrip on the Johnson South Reef. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea—UNCLOS—is one forum for tackling these disputes. But UNCLOS cannot rule over territorial disputes, just over the waters habitable islands are entitled to. And China and Taiwan point to a map published in the 1940s, showing a big U-shaped nine-dashed line around the edge of the sea. That, they say, is historically all China’s. This has no basis in international law, and the Philippines, to China’s fury, is challenging it at an UNCLOS tribunal. In fact China often fails to clarify whether its claims are based on the nine-dashed line, or on claims to islands, rocks and shoals. That lack of clarity alarms not just its neighbours and rival claimants, but the United States, which says it has its own national interest in the freedom of navigation in a sea through which a huge chunk of global trade passes Also alarming is that if these arguments over tiny specks in the sea become so unmanageable, what hope is there for resolving the really big issues? And the biggest of all is the status of Taiwan, still seen by China as part of its territory, but in practice independent since 1949. For now, Taiwan and China have a thriving commercial relationship. But polls suggest that few in Taiwan hanker after unification with the mainland. And China’s rulers still insist that one day they will have to accept just that.

Because vicious political infighting between the Tory and Whig politic parties made it difficult to pass new tax laws, Harley turned to a private financier named John Blunt to help find enough money for England to keep up with its expenses for the year. Using Harley's government resources, Blunt instigated a series of get-rich schemes that drove artificial demand for unsustainable land and lottery investments with tremendous short term gains. Before the year was done, Blunt had successfully covered the shortfall for the government that year - albeit at the cost of driving England's already outrageous debt even higher. ___________ Get the intro music here! http://bit.ly/1EQA5N7 *Music by Demetori: http://bit.ly/1AaJG4H Listen to the outro music here! http://bit.ly/1ERCS9G __________ Extra History - Warring States Japan: Sengoku Jidai Chapter 1: Battle of Okehazama: http://bit.ly/1xgZxfi James Recommends - City Building Games Across the Ages Anno Series (Dawn of Discovery): http://bit.ly/18mJxPg

Fishing is central to the livelihood and food security of 200 million people, especially in the developing world, while one of five people on this planet depends on fish as the primary source of protein. According to UN agencies, aquaculture - the farming and stocking of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants - is growing more rapidly than all other animal food producing sectors. But amid facts and figures about aquaculture's soaring worldwide production rates, other, more sobering, statistics reveal that global main marine fish stocks are in jeopardy, increasingly pressured by overfishing and environmental degradation. - Source http://www.un.org/events/tenstories/0...

Riverine Bangladesh is the largest delta in the world. Sited in the Ganges-Brahmaputra river stream, this country has the Bay-of-Bengal in its south. Around 710 km. coastline in its south spread from Teknaf to Satkhira. A major portion of the diverse biodiversity of this country is seen in the marine ecosystem. The bottom of the coast gradually becomes deep towards the deep sea and suddenly falls in a vertical slope. A diverse biodiversity is seen in the shallow and the deep sea and in many small islands of the Sea. The plants and animals found in the salty & regular tidal environment are of different characteristics. The Bay-of-Bengal contains giant whales as well as minute organisms. Various species of dolphins and whales surf here in different groups. Despite being seen in the various places of the sea, the ‘Swatch of No Ground’ is famous for dolphins and whales. The highest number of species are seen in here. Apart from these, different species of shrimps, lobsters, crabs, marine turtles etc. are also found. Various species of marine fishes are mostly seen in the marine ecosystem. About 166,000 sq. km area within our maritime boundary is known as the Exclusive Economic Zone, which is larger than the land area of our country. There are four main fish capture zones in the Bay of Bengal; Southern patch, south of southern patch, middle patch and Swatch of no ground. Fishing continues in Sea for day & night. About 475 species of fishes are found in this huge economic zone. Among them Bombey-duck, Ribbon fish, Ritta, Surma, Giant Seaperch, Chapila, Pomfret, Tuna fish etc. are notable. These various species of fishes are of diverse size and color. Most of the fishes are very nutritious. Hilsa covers a large portion of the total captured marine fish of the country. Various species of sharks, skates and rays are also there. The fishermen capture hundreds of tons of marine fish everyday by their fishing trawlers. These commercially captured fishes are being exported to foreign countries after meeting up the demand of protein in the country. Each year, approx. 0.5 million metric tons of fish are being captured from the sea, from which $500 million is being earned by exporting. Shrimps cover a large portion of marine fisheries. Various species of shrimps are found in the sea. The tiger shrimp is one of them. Some species of tiger shrimps are economically very important. To increase the production of shrimp and prawn, numerous hatcheries have been built in the coastal area. From these hatcheries, the hatchlings are supplied to the shrimp farms. Millions of people have been occupied in this industry. Our country earns a huge foreign currency by exporting the shrimps. Hence, it is called as ‘White Gold’ in our country. A part of the marine fishes captured in this country is processed as dry fish. The places like Cox’s Bazar, Sonadia, Moheshkhali, Dubla Char are famous for dry fish processing. Bombey-duck, Ribbon fish, Giant Seaperch, Pomfret, Tuna fish, different prawn species etc. are famous for drying. These dry fishes are being exported to foreign countries after meeting up the demand in the country. Fish is a traditional item for the Bengali people. The proverb “fish and rice make a Bengali” was actually emerged due to the popularity of fish in Bengali society. But due to lack of apt management, our marine fish resources are not being harvested properly. In addition to this, climate change and various pollutions are also responsible. Fuel and wastes emitted from mechanized vessels, waste products from the ship breaking industries etc. are continuously polluting the aquatic environment of the Sea. For such kinds of pollutions and uncontrolled fishing, some species are gradually being endangered. Which is impacting the complete marine ecosystem. The economy of the country is going down. So, to protect the marine fisheries, it is very important to take apt initiatives now. Building public awareness and taking sustainable planning can save our massive marine ecosystem and at the same time can sustain our resourceful marine fisheries.

The ocean is big. Cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch using conventional methods - vessels and nets - would take thousands of years and tens of billions of dollars to complete. Our passive systems are estimated to remove half the Great Pacific Garbage patch in just five years, and at a fraction of the cost. Our first cleanup system will be deployed in the summer of 2018. This is how it works.

The Nuestra Senora de Atocha Have you ever dreamed of discovering an old world shipwreck full of treasure? While it’s an incredibly rare thing, it is possible, and the rewards can be beyond your wildest dreams if you put in the dedication and effort. 9. Methane Craters In the 1990's it was discovered that the otherwise flat seafloor that lies between Svalbard and Finnmark, in Norway, is covered in unusual massive craters. They range from 1000 to 3000 feet in diameter and have formed in the solid bedrock. What’s more, similar craters have been found on land, such as a number of recently formed holes in the Yamal peninsula in northern Siberia. 8. Blackbeard’s Shipwreck Blackbeard, whose real name was Edward Teach, was by far the most famous pirate who sailed the waters around the West Indies and North America until his death on the 22nd of November, 1718. His flagship, you remember the one! - The Queen Anne's Revenge, was a former French merchant vessel that his crew captured, equipped with 40 cannons, and became a sight of terror for anyone sailing in the region. 7. Oldest Message in a Bottle Have you ever found a message in a bottle? Or sent one out?? It's a story we hear quite often in our childhood but, on occasion, it actually happens in real life! In early 2018, a couple walking along a beach in Western Australia and saw a bottle in the sand, but they couldn't have realized how amazing a find this would turn out to be. 6. The Sunken City of Dwarka While the legend of Atlantis continues to fascinate, but elude, researchers, it’s not the only sunken city in the world. Underwater settlements have been found in some of the most surprising places, but one of the most important to have ever been discovered is Dwarka in India. According to legend, it was founded by Krishna, where he battled the evil King Salva. 5. Sea Monster Figurehead In the 1970’s, divers found remains of a shipwreck in the Baltic sea, but it was only in 2013 that its identity was confirmed as being the flagship of King Hans of Denmark’s fleet, called the Gribshunden, that sank in 1495. The king was on his way to negotiate an agreement between the Scandinavian countries, but the ship caught on fire, incinerating many of those on board. 4. A New Continent Our planet has 7 continents, at least that’s what’s always been thought. Many millions of years ago the land on earth was all part of one mass, called Pangea, and has since all separated to see the layout that we see today. While it’s true that there are 7 continents above water, in 1995 it was first suggested that there was actually an 8th one, something that was actually confirmed in 2017. 3. Apollo 11 Engines In 1969, Apollo 11 took Neil Armstrong and his fellow astronauts to the moon for the very first time- marking a significant step in space exploration, and cementing the US as the winners of the space race. With such an important place in history, it’s no surprise, then, that Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, spent vast resources on trying to locate the remains of the Apollo 11 engines and, in 2013, he was successful. 2. The Deepest Living Fish There’s so much to still be found in the ocean, particularly life. Hardly a week goes by without a new species being discovered, and some definitely look like beings from another planet! With vast regions of the planet’s seas still being very difficult to access, there’s an entire world down there just waiting to be revealed. 1. An Exploded Star Every atom that’s found on our planet originated in a star when it ejected matter in its dying stages, but some material is much newer than others. In 2016, an amazing discovery was made in the Pacific ocean.

The Arctic ice is retreating due to climate change. The region’s once inaccessible raw materials have caught the attention of major world powers. Countries like the USA, Russia and China are positioning themselves, scouting out the land and securing the best sites for getting their hands on the raw materials. The animals of the Arctic are also having to fight - for their survival. Russia already has an ultra-modern nuclear-powered icebreaker in operation. The Norwegian company Statoil is conducting test drilling with its cutting-edge rig "Songa Enabler," which was designed especially for the Arctic; it’s the most northerly drilling operation in the world. Norway hopes to discover vast natural wealth in the Arctic. But the borders in the Arctic have not yet been set, and a war over resources is always a distinct danger. For the animals of the Arctic, including seals and polar bears, the melting sea ice is also having drastic consequences. They’re losing their habitats and their search for food is becoming increasingly difficult. In addition, the rubbish that is piling up in the Arctic only degrades very slowly and it’s poisoning the animals. Seabirds and whales are dying because they can’t digest the plastic in their stomachs. International fishing fleets are the main culprits when it comes to rubbish in the Arctic. The ice used to be a natural barrier. Now the trawlers can penetrate further and further into the icy ocean and, as a result, catch greater quantities of fish. Overfishing is almost inevitable. Furthermore the huge trawl nets used by the industrial fishing fleets are destroying the ocean floor, an important habitat. For years, environmental organizations such as Greenpeace have been complaining about the problems caused by fishing and raw-material exploitation in the Arctic. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Golden Eagles occupy a broad range of habitats in the American West, ranging from oak savanna in California’s Coast Ranges and creosote bush in the Mojave Desert to the sagebrush-steppe of the Bighorn Basin. In each of these landscapes, eagles rely on a unique set of resources for breeding and overwintering, and are affected by local patterns of land uses and threats. Superimposed on these local populations is a vast network of movement patterns, including long-distance migration from boreal and arctic populations and dispersal movements of young eagles. This complexity presents a challenge for conservation of Golden Eagles in an era of accelerated energy development and an expanding human footprint on western landscapes. To address this challenge, Mr. Woodbridge and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Western Golden Eagle Team are working with a host of collaborators to improve our understanding of this apex predator in the West, and seeking innovative ways to integrate conservation of Golden Eagles into working landscapes. Please join Mr. Woodbridge as he highlights his team’s ‘big picture’ approach to understanding and conserving Golden Eagles in the West.

In light of the sheer physical enormity of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and the complexity of its causes, what can we possibility do about it? Perhaps help protect some vulnerable populations of wildlife from marine garbage in coastal regions, according to the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) — a citizen science group that monitors marine resources and ecosystem health at more than 350 beaches from northern California to Alaska. Although COASST, which receives funding from the National Science Foundation, has long focused on collecting data on beach-cast seabird carcasses as an indicator of coastal health, the group will soon also focus on collecting data on beached marine debris. Resulting data could be used to help support efforts to reduce the impacts of marine debris on coastal wildlife.

Ocean’s tides are explained in this video: How the tides work? Why the oceans experience two high tides and two low tides each day? The oceans on the earth's surface are attracted to the moon through the effects of gravity. Because the strength of the gravitational attractions depend on the separation distance of objects, the oceans on both sides of the earth, as well as the earth itself, experience different gravitational forces towards the moon, causing two oceanic bulges which result in two high tides daily. The video also explains why tides as well as moon rise and moon set are 50 minutes later each day, based on the moon's orbit around the earth.

We provide lesson plans, hands-on classroom resources, demonstration equipment, quizzes and a Teacher's Manual to primary school teachers. Animated videos that clearly explain the scientific ideas supports learning by both teachers and students. As a teacher, you don't have to look anywhere else to implement this program. Our work has been verified by science education researchers at the University of Southern Queensland, Dr Jenny Donovan and Dr Carole Haeusler, who confirm that primary students are capable of learning much more complex scientific concepts than previously thought, and crucially, that they love it. Students run to class! The program has been trialed in Australian schools as well as schools in the Philippines, Iran and India. It is conducted as holiday workshops at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, the Queensland Museum as well as the World Science Festival. It has attracted wide media interest, including TV, radio and print, and the research data has been presented at prestigious American Education Research Association and Australian Science Education Research Association conferences. Atomic Theory underlies all the other sciences- genetics, electronics, nanotechnology, engineering and astronomy- so an early understanding will set them up for a more successful learning sequence for all their science subjects, and support their mastery of mathematics as well. We also have extension programs that cover Biology, Physics and Astronomy to an equal depth. About Ian Stuart (Email: [email protected]): The founder of Atomic School, Ian Stuart, taught Chemistry and Physics for 25 years at senior levels before he realized that his 8-year old son, Tom, could understand Atomic Theory at a much deeper level than he expected. After visiting Tom's class at school, he discovered that his peers could also grasp the abstract scientific concepts, as well as apply it usefully to the real world. Ian then developed a program to teach the advanced concepts of high school Chemistry, Physics and Biology to students 10 years younger than they normally would. He found that this engaged their interest in modern science early, and sustained it through to high school and beyond. It also sets them up for future success in their academic and career paths. Ian has a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry from the University of Queensland and a Master's degree in Electrochemistry from the University of Melbourne.

More than 4.5 million tons of tuna are caught each year as part of a $5 billion industry that is an economic lifeline for Pacific island countries. But for how much longer? Saving our Tuna, a UNDP half-hour documentary, takes you to the richest fishing grounds on the planet, where fleets of fishing vessels equipped with sonar, and sophisticated satellite tracking devices are catching millions of tons of tuna, making it the third most harvested fish in the ocean. The race is on to see if technology can also help save a commodity that is a way of life for so many. Harvest rates have been increasing dramatically over the last decade, placing pressure on a resource that is vital as a food source and an important means of livelihood. Produced by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Arrowhead Films for Discovery Channel in Asia, the movie takes an inside look at tuna technology -- how it is used to catch, and perhaps even help save the tuna industry and the livelihoods of tens of thousands of Pacific islanders. "If we lose our tuna, we lose our entire way of life," says Adrian Wickham, General Manager of Tri Marine's National Fisheries Development in the Solomon Islands. The movie reveals cutting edge air and sea monitoring operations to enforce fishing limit compliance. It brings viewers into the cockpit of the same P3 Orion aircraft as it flies over vast tracks of ocean to crack down on illegal fishing. Technology is but one part of the tuna picture. UNDP and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) continue to make significant investments to improve fisheries management. "Overfishing is just one of several challenges to long-term sustainability of the global ocean," says Andrew Hudson, UNDP's Oceans Management expert. "Other threats include pollution, invasive aquatic species, habitat loss, and ocean acidification due to the build up of fossil fuel carbon dioxide in the oceans. UNDP is working on each of these issues at multiple levels with many partners as part of a global effort to restore and protect ocean resources," he says. "Perhaps nowhere else on earth are fisheries more important to the food security and livelihoods of a region than in the Pacific Islands. For over 15 years, UNDP has been supporting efforts by the 14 Pacific Island countries to sustainably manage these resources vital to the social and economic development of the island communities", says Haoliang Xu, UNDP Director for Asia and the Pacific.

If Indonesia country had an accurate tsunami warning system then It would not have been and if other countries had warned it in time, many lives could have been saved. So in today's video we will talk about what is this tsunami, how does the tsunami come? What is Tsunami speed, Tsunami width and height? What is Tsunami Warning System and how does it work? How many hours before we can find the tsunami? And what is the Tsunami Warning Center in India and how does it work? Tsunami word is made up of two words of the Japanese language 'tSu' and 'Nami'. In which "tsu" means "port" and "nami" means 'wave'. And this word has been composed by the Japanese fishermen who, at times, saw the port in the open ocean without any specific movement of waves. That is why they named this event as 'Tsunami'. the floating wall of salt water, which is very common in the Pacific Ocean but not in the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea. That is why there is probably no specific name for them in Indian languages. How tsunami was form ? There are many reasons behind the tsunami waves, but the most effective reason is the earthquake. Apart from this, due to soil erosion, volcanic eruptions, any kind of explosion, and occasionally meteorite, the waves of tsunami arise. Due to the earthquake, the upper layer of the ocean flips suddenly and moves forward, causing the sea to grow upwards in its parallel position. The waves that are made at that time are tsunami waves. Like the egg shell is hard but its inner substance is soft and wet. With the effect of earthquake, these cracks widen and create such a stir in the inner substance, that it quickly turns to the side of the upper side. So, the continents are formed by sliding the earth's layers, and similar deformities in the sea level mostly arise due to earthquake. So these tsunami waves are formed like this. But it is also not necessary that every earthquake has tsunami waves. For this, it is important to be in the center of the earthquake or in the ocean. So Tsunami Warning Center and how it works? Now some scientific techniques have been invented, with the help of which can be obtained information about coming to the Tsunami for about an hour. US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, ie NOAA, established the International Tsunami Warning System (TWS) in 1965. It was founded by the American government. TWS Tsunami Warning Center is in the Hawaiian Islands and this center is located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, where the tsunami is mostly coming. Recently developed Deep Ocean Assessment and Reporting of Tsunami (DART) system has significantly improved Tsunami Warning process. This system was first introduced in August 2000. A device floating on the Bottom Pressure Recorder (BPR) device and sea waves is used to collect information through the dart system. Data or information is sent to the floating device from BPR located in deep water. Figures or information from the floating device is delivered to the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite Data Collection System. From here the figures reach the earthquake and they are sent through the 'National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration' - NOAA to the immediate Tsunami Activity Center. And with the help of this collected data, the speed and direction of the possible tsunami are calculated using a computer-based mathematical model. On the basis of this calculation, the coastal areas and media in the possible side of the tsunami are warned about the tsunami and efforts are made to save lives. India's Tsunami Warning Center how it works? Under the Ministry of Earth Sciences in India, the Indian National Center for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) has developed a new model which is the ITEWC. That is, the Indian Tsunami Early Warning Center has been set up in INCOIS, which is located in Hyderabad. India had set up its Tsunami Warning Center in 2007, which cost Rs 85 crores. India's Tsunami Warning System gives information in three levels. This center uses the satellites connected to the network to issue warnings and floats in deep seas. India also gives a pre-warning of Tsunami to Pakistan. And it is important that India is the only country that has set a tsunami warning in the Indian Ocean. And not all earthquakes produce tsunamis, hence the warning based on the occurrence of earthquake can not be correct in the context of a tsunami. According to one report, three out of every four tsunami predictions, which were done in the year 1965, proved to be wrong. Incorrect warning means to pay a higher price because it is a misuse of resources and time. #Tsunami #TsunamiWarningSystem Therefore, now the need of the hour is that all the countries should come together to make information available from Tsunami Warning System to their neighboring countries so as to reduce the loss of property.
