Exploring the Rock
St. John's, NewfoundlandDVD - 2006?
We explore St. John's and the coastal life first by rowboat and then by schooner as we explore more of the Avalon Peninsula ending with Cape Spear National Historic Site of Canada. We check out the amazing bird life of Cape St. Mary's, and then visit the Institute of Marine Dynamics as they test the seaworthiness of various ships by using wind and storms. Jay tells us about the Grand Banks continental shelf and how its abundant fish contributed to the settlement of Newfoundland. In Jay's Gee! Ology he demonstrates how ocean currents are formed and what factors affect them.
