The science documentary ‘The future of Finland’ aims to discover what skills will be crucial for Finland in the following decades. The first three episodes of the programme talk about forestry: about new uses for wood pulp, about renewable energy and the welfare effects of wood. https://www.smy.fi/en/artikkeli/science-documentary-shows-the-future-of-finland-to-lie-in-the-forest

The Ocean is the blue heart of our planet … How will we mitigate the effects of global warming on us, our islands, our coasts and our seas? Climate Change is one of the six themes of the #OurOcean conference (Malta, 5-6 October 2017).
After the United States of America and Chile, the European Union is proud to host the "Our Ocean, an Ocean for Life" conference, at the initiative of High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini and European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Karmenu Vella.

Watch dam failure footage - a failing dam is causing "extremely dangerous" flooding on a Puerto Rico river in the wake of Hurricane Maria, authorities say http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-41368478
Tens of thousands of residents in northwestern Puerto Rico were ordered to evacuate Friday amid fears that a dam holding back a large inland lake was in imminent danger of failing because of damage from Hurricane Maria's floodwaters. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2017/09/22/at-least-6-dead-in-puerto-rico-due-to-hurricane-maria-officials-say

A Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules airplane crew from Air Station Clearwater, Florida, and a British Royal Fleet Auxiliary Mounts Bay rescue helicopter crew coordinate the rescue of an adult female and two children from the vessel Ferrel near Vieques, Puerto Rico, Sept. 21, 2017. Coast Guard watchstanders received an alert via emergency position indicating radio beacon and then a distress call on Sept. 20 from the Ferrel stating they were disabled and adrift in 20-foot seas and 100-knot winds.

Arctic sea ice appears to have reached a record low wintertime maximum extent for 2017, according to scientists at the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) in Boulder, Colo. Observations indicate that on September 13th, ice extent shrunk to the eighth lowest in the satellite record, at 4.64 million sq km, or 1.79 million sq mi.
In this visualization, the daily Arctic sea ice and seasonal land cover change progress through time, from this year’s wintertime maximum extent on March 7, 2017, through September 13, 2017 when the sea ice reached its annual minimum extent for the year. Over the water, Arctic sea ice changes from day to day showing a running 3-day minimum sea ice concentration in the region where the concentration is greater than 15%. The blueish white color of the sea ice is derived from a 3-day running minimum of the AMSR2 89 GHz brightness temperature. Over the terrain, monthly data from the seasonal Blue Marble Next Generation fades slowly from month to month.

There has been a lot of devastating earthquake activity in Mexico with a magnitude 8.1 earthquake on September 7th and a magnitude 7.1 earthquake on September 19th. In this animation, the colors represent the depth of the earthquake and the size represents the magnitude. Read more here https://sos.noaa.gov/datasets/earthquakes-real-time
Together with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), the Urban Complexity Lab of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam (FHP) developed an animated short movie that visualizes the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of the past – and the possible future.
