Dive into the science of ocean currents (including the Global Conveyor Belt current), and find out how climate change affects them.

--

In 1992, a cargo ship carrying bath toys got caught in a storm. Shipping containers washed overboard, and the waves swept 28,000 rubber ducks and other toys into the North Pacific. But they didn’t stick together -- the ducks have since washed up all over the world. How did this happen? Jennifer Verduin dives into the science of ocean currents.

Lesson by Jennifer Verduin, directed by Cabong Studios.
