NASA Releases Climate Change Multimedia Resource Reel

Nov 24, 2009 by Cynthia O'Carroll

In advance of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, NASA has released a new multimedia climate change "resource reel" showcasing free downloadable videos, data visualizations, animations, and still images that illustrate key climate change concepts and discoveries.

NASA created the reel to provide journalists, educators, and the general public with copyright-free media content in advance of the United Nations Conference in Copenhagen, which begins December 7. Featured on the page is a quick-access list of the ten most popular climate change visualizations and imagery. The reel is divided into key topics such as ocean, atmosphere, and the sun. It also contains a search function that offers access to NASA’s larger archive.

The climate change gallery is available on-line through NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio at: svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/ClimateEssentials/ . Media can be downloaded in a variety of high-definition and web-friendly formats directly from the site.

The multimedia gallery is also available on NASA’s Global web site: http://climate.nasa.gov/ClimateReel/ .
