Ocean Talk provides a glimpse of oceanography and an awareness of the importance of the sea to our environment and our own well-being. There are scientific explanations of ocean bottom features, the properties of seawater, underwater sound, sea ice, ocean currents, tides, waves, and tsunamis. A history of marine exploration and descriptions of the Earth's oceans are also provided. Full description.

This data tip from Bridge, the Ocean Sciences Education Teacher Resource Center archive, focuses on tides. Students learn how to plan for tide-affected activities by using the NOAA Tide Predictions page to calculate tidal predictions for several days at a site of interest in the coastal United States. Students are also linked to a site with global data where they may generate a graph of tidal predictions ... Full description.

This lesson will familiarize students with discoveries in ocean research, including hydrothermal vents and historical shipwrecks. They will learn about the work of deep-sea explorer Robert Ballard and hypothesize about what they might find in the ocean. Students will complete their research by creating a museum exhibit about ocean exploration and by suggesting questions for future research. Full description.

This document explains the predictable and periodic movements of ocean waters that are known as tides and how they are produced by the gravitational forces of the moon and sun. It describes how gravitational attraction and centrifugal force create bulges on either side of the Earth (the high tides), and how two coinciding and simultaneous low tides occur at equal distances around the earth between ...

This text discusses differences in ocean tides. Along America's Atlantic Coast, two high and low tides occur daily. Such tides are called semidiurnal. On the north shore of the Gulf of Mexico, the tide is diurnal, meaning that it moves in and out again once a day while in the Pacific Northwest, there are mixed tides, two highs and two lows a day, characterized by significant disparity between successive ...
