|Satellite Comparisons Between the Gulf of Maine and the Caribbean (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)|
This is a web-based activity using satellite images of the Gulf of Maine and the Carribean Sea. Students are asked to examine satellite data of sea surface temperatures. From this data they are to determine the temperature scale and how temperature differences are indicated. They also examine phytoplankton density images to determine where high phytoplankton densities are. Additional activities are to determine the location of upwelling and surface currents in the images by extrapolating from the data.
