For the last ten years, marine scientists have been hard at work on a census of marine life. This audio segment from PRI's The World Science Podcast discusses some of their latest findings. Hear about strange deep sea creatures such as transparent sea cucumbers and oil eating tube worms. Learn about "marine snow," and the technology used to research 656 feet below. And find out how environmental changes are effecting life on the ocean floor.
The World Science Podcast is a weekly production of The World.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
