Over the years, the combined ocean drilling programs (Deep Sea Drilling Project, Ocean Drilling Program, and Integrated Ocean Drilling Program) have recovered thousands of cores from beneath the ocean floor. Students can study a brief synopsis of some of the most important discoveries made from these cores by clicking on an interactive map which shows sampling locations where major discoveries were ...

In this activity, students will gain an understanding of how geologists determine rates of sea floor spreading between two tectonic plates. Using a strip map of the North Atlantic seafloor, they will measure distances and note the ages of the strips of seafloor basalt. They will also gain experience applying some basic, useful mathematical concepts such as the calculation and use of velocities and ... Full description.

In this activity students design and execute an experiment through which they will learn the distinctions between density, buoyancy, and volume. Students are asked to imagine a staysail schooner loaded with mid-ocean ridge basalt as it floats in a swimming pool in Woods Hole. They must determine what will happen to the water level if all the basalt is dumped over the side into the pool. Posing an ... Full description.

This document outlines the development of the theory of contintental drift and how many lines of evidence collected over several decades by various researchers were brought together to explain how the seafloor spreads and the continents move about. Links to additional information are included. Full description.

This map and summary describe the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC), which is the most important current in the Southern Ocean and the only current that flows completely around the globe. The ACC, as it encircles the Antarctic continent, flows eastward through the southern portions of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans. Links are provided to summary text detailing velocity and hydrographic ... Full description.
