The Habitable Planet

Many Planets, One Earth (#1)

The early Earth was a much different planet than the one we know today. Ancient rocks provide evidence of the emergence of oxygen in the atmosphere and of a frozen Snowball Earth. Scientists Paul Hoffman and Andrew Knoll look at these clues to help explain the rise of complex animal life.

    The Habitable Planet

    Atmosphere (#2)

    The atmosphere is what makes the Earth habitable. Heat-trapping gases allow ecosystems to flourish. While the NOAA Global Monitoring Project documents the fluctuations in greenhouse gases worldwide, MIT's Kerry Emanuel looks at the role of hurricanes in regulating global climate.

    Earth Revealed

    Sedimentary Rocks (#17)

    This program returns to the Grand Canyon: its exposed layers of sedimentary rock allow scientists to peer into the geologic past. The movement of sediment and its deposition are covered, and the processes of lithification, compaction, and cementation that produce sedimentary rocks are explained. Organic components of rock are also discussed.

    Metamorphic Rocks (#18)

    The weight of a mountain creates enough pressure to recrystallize rock, thus creating metamorphic rocks. This program outlines the recrystallization process and the types of rock it can create — from claystone and slate to schist and garnet-bearing gneiss. The relationship of metamorphic rock to plate tectonics is also covered.

    What You Don't Know…

    What You Don't Know. From the time of conception, human development and health are affected by the environment in which a person lives. Population growth, urbanization and industrialization, modern agricultural methods and energy sources have each had a part in polluting the environment and affecting the quality of human life. This program focuses on health hazards in the environment with particular attention on the health consequences of air pollution and contaminated water. It also looks at environmental hazards in the workplace and home, and the benefits and costs of “curing” the ills that exist.
