        Catching the Rainforest's Breath | Science Visualization

        Armed with a suite of high-tech tools, scientists are measuring the flow of gases into and out of the Amazon rainforest to understand how this iconic ecosystem responds to seasonal and climatic shifts. Ecosystem-wide, is the Amazon storing or releasing more carbon dioxide? Watch this silent clip to view the data.

        This visualization was created by Ken Ackerman for bioGraphic, an online magazine powered by the California Academy of Sciences, a renowned scientific and educational institution dedicated to exploring, explaining, and sustaining life on Earth.
