Fifty Popular Datasets

Introduction  The Science On a Sphere (SOS) playlist "Fifty Popular Datasets"  consists of datasets that can be used to educate visitors of all ages on a broad range of global topics including climate, ocean currents, weather, earthquakes and tsunamis, human activity and planets in our solar system.   The playlist serves as an introduction to SOS, and from there the presenter can use the search function to expand on a particular topic.   Two Real Time datasets are included: Real Time weather, and Real Time earthquakes, which contain data from the previous 30 days; this is of particular interest following recent severe weather or earthquake events.   Also included are some unusual datasets, such as the global Facebook network, the 2010 eruption of the Icelandic volcano, and the Global Epidemic and Mobility Modeler which displays the global spread of the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic.   There are over 450 datasets in the database.....enjoy !                              Online Resource - SOS NOAA
