SeaWiFS Project: Teacher's Resources (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)
The purpose of the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) is to provide quantitative data on global ocean bio-optical properties to the Earth science community. Subtle changes in ocean color signify various types and quantities of marine phytoplankton (microscopic marine plants), the knowledge of which has both scientific and practical applications. In addition to selected links to related external sites, the Project's Teacher Resources page includes internal links to information on SeaWiFS imagery, related activities in the Living Ocean Teacher's Guide, tutorials on remote sensing, images and notes on a teacher workshop for incorporating SeaWiFS into teaching curricula, a tutorial on classic Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) scenes, and the Colors of Life, a set of stories and animations about SeaWiFS and the Carbon Cycle.
