The CIRES Education and Outreach Program offers a suite of programs aligned with the Essential Principals of Ocean Sciences (EPOS) and the Essential Principles of Climate Sciences (EPCS). One such program, the COSEE West – Colorado Collaborative, provides a means by which scientists can participate in ocean and climate sciences education outreach through a teacher professional development program. The purpose of the program is to bring the global oceans to inland audiences. The focus of each year’s program is driven by participating scientists’ research interests. The Ocean and Climate Principles covered touched upon during the course include:

  • EPOS 3 - The ocean is a major influence on weather and climate
  • EPOS 6 - The ocean and humans are inextricably connected
  • EPCS 1 - The Sun is the primary source of energy for Earth’s climate system
  • EPCS 2 - Climate is regulated by complex interactions among components of the Earth system
  • EPCS 5 - Our understanding of the climate system is improved through observations, theoretical studies and modeling
  • EPCS 6 - Human activities are impacting the climate system
