Making Waves

In this episode, we spend some time at the NOAA booth at the recent National Science Teachers Association annual meeting held in Philadelphia, Penn. This huge convention was an opportunity for NOAA men and women from a variety of backgrounds and expertise to meet face to face with thousands of science teachers. This is the first half of a two-part series recorded live at the event.

Making Waves

We've got three stories for you this week (10 minutes):

State of the Coast. A new NOAA Web site serves up an interactive journey to highlight the need to better understand, manage, and protect our nation's coastal resources.

Cold Water Causes Coral Bleaching. Cold ocean temperatures in January caused the most significant cold-water coral die-off in Florida in 30 years.

Humpback Whale Count in Hawaii. The Sanctuary Ocean Count is winding up in Hawaii, an annual event that helps researchers learn more about endangered whale populations that travel to the islands from Alaska every year.

Join us for two stories (10 minutes):

2010 New England Red Tide Forecast. Last week, scientists from the NOAA-funded Gulf of Maine Toxicity project issued an outlook for a significant regional bloom of a toxic alga that causes 'red tides' in the spring and summer of this year, potentially threatening the New England shellfish industry.

Pharmaceuticals in the Environment. Have you ever flushed your old, expired prescription drugs down the toilet? What's the fate of these pills? Scientists are now studying this problem, and they're finding low levels of pharmaceuticals in estuaries, rivers, streams, ground water, and in sediments.
