This resource consists of a silent (non-narrated) video of the ocean thermohaline circulation that focuses especially on the northern Atlantic and the Antarctic Circumpolar Circulation, as well as textual descriptions. There is sufficient detail for teachers as to the science being shown in the video and the appropriate ages and standards, as well as a link to the original NASA source. This resource is recommended for teaching.

ESS2: Earth's Systems
MS-ESS2-1 Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth's materials and the flow of energy that drives this process.
MS-ESS2-4 Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth's systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.
HS-ESS2-2 Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth’s surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems.
