Gulf of Maine-Removing CO2
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 0:02:02

To understand the ocean's role in taking up atmospheric CO2, we need information about carbon cycling on the planet and in the oceans. This information can be put into models.

Humans in Winter
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 0:04:32

Compared to plants and animals, humans seem to be the least tolerant of long winters and cold temperatures. The most effective natural mechanism we have for minimizing heat loss is constriction of the blood vessels close to the surface of our skin, and we’re a little better than most organisms at generating heat.
