NASA joins in the world celebration of Earth Science Week 2009 (October 11-17) with a release of a series of new multimedia products and educational resources designed to improve understanding of global climate change. The theme of this year's event is "Understanding Climate."

As a leader in climate studies, NASA's contribution to Earth Science Week this year focuses on the connection between climate change and Earth's ocean. Highlights include a new video series entitled "Tides of Change" focusing on the ocean-climate connection, and a live educational webcast on Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m.EDT).
