The Living Landscapes Project and CLEAN

Abstract: On this CLEAN conference call, we will present about the Living Landscapes project and how we are incorporating it into CLEAN pages. The Living Landscapes Project is a NASA-funded set of climate-science educational resources designed to integrate traditional knowledge (Native science) about the climate with current climate science research. The package includes a ten-episode video series, two on-line college courses and an on-line high-school learning unit, 10 in-depth climate labs, a set of 18 climate tools and models, a complete teachers'/instructors' guide, and a climate-themed social networking site.
