Oceanographic Instrumentation, Measuring Temperature part of Teach the Earth:Teaching Activities
Students open the "black box" of instrumentation by building a temperature sensor, modifying a computer program and collecting data to make a graph of the thermocline. The activity introduces students to ...
Quantifying transport of sediment off of continental shelves part of Teach the Earth:Teaching Activities
This activity requires students to manipulate oceanographic data to derive new variables, make plots, interpret plots and make back-of-the-envelope calculations to weigh the importance of eddies in shelf edge ...
Transporting sediment off of the continental shelf part of Teach the Earth:Teaching Activities
In this activity students examine a map of geopotential anomaly to determine ocean current patterns. They then examine particle beam attenuation data to identify patterns in the locations of intermediate nepheloid ...
Discovering the oil/plastics cycle part of GeoEthics:Activities
Lauren Sahl, Corning School of Ocean Studies, Maine Maritime Academy Summary Students examine a video clip showing dead albatross chicks with their guts full of plastics. They are asked to write down a list of all ...
Seasonal variation in light, mixing depth and primary productivity in temperate northern hemisphere waters part of Oceanography:Activities
In this exercise students work with light, temperature, and phytoplankton biomass proxy (chlorophyll a concentration) data to; Become more skilled in reading and interpreting semi log graphs, temperature profiles, ...
Sea level change part of Oceanography:Activities
Students calculate sea level change due to melting ice caps, thermal expansion and changes in ridge spreading rates.
Sound and light in the ocean part of Oceanography:Activities
In this activity students read graphs, make calculations, and interpret both to see how sound is a more effective tool than light when we want to "see" in the ocean.
Introduction to Ocean Science part of Oceanography:Courses
This is a survey course covering the geology, biology, chemistry and circulation of the ocean.
