Developed in partnership with COMET Program/MetEd, "What are Geodetic Datums?", outlines the basic concepts behind geodetic datums, where they are used, and why it is important to know about and use the correct datums. For more information on geodetic datums, visit http://www.geodesy.noaa.gov/.
Ocean Today is an interactive exhibit that plays short videos on ocean related themes. Visitors can select from 200+ videos on topics ranging from deep-‐sea exploration, marine species, and restoration projects to hurricanes, oceans and human health, and climate science and research. These videos are a free resource and are available on our website at oceantoday.noaa.gov.
The Ocean Today kiosk was originally developed for the Sant Ocean Hall -- a permanent exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History. Ocean Today kiosks are now located at 37 aquaria, science centers, museums, and visitor centers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the U.K. To learn more about the program or to get a kiosk at your facility, visit our website.
