Estuaries have physical traits, and scientists use a variety of measurements such as water depth, salinity, and current speed to describe an estuary. This site describes the various measurements that make up the physical properties of an estuary, using Narragansett Bay as an example. Specific sections of this site focus on water chemistry (temperature, salinity, oxygen, chlorophyll a, and pH), circulation ... Full description.

In this lesson, students integrate history and science while discovering how salinity affects the density of water. Students should be already familiar with the geography of the Mediterranean region, where water flows in from the Atlantic Ocean and Black Sea. The water level of the Mediterranean does not rise even though there is no apparent way for water to exit. Water in the Mediterranean has a ... Full description.

These two hands-on labs are about the role of temperature and salinity in governing the density of seawater, a major factor controlling the ocean's vertical movements and layered circulation. In the first activity students work in groups to determine the density of tap water and of tap water with salt, then compare the densities. The second activity investigates the role of temperature and salinity ... Full description.

This lesson on the cause of currents and water circulation in the Arctic Ocean will require students to investigate the influence of salinity and temperature on the density of seawater to determine what factors drive water circulation in the Arctic Ocean. Students identify the primary driving forces for ocean currents and infer the type of water circulation to be expected in the Arctic Ocean, given ... Full description.

This guide instructs educators on the classroom use of transect station data from the Mote Marine Laboratory. This data, from the Phytoplankton Ecology Program, consists of hydrographic conditions (temperature, salinity and density) and chlorophyll fluorescence, which depicts general phytoplankton distributions. Of particular interest are the toxic phytoplankton which produce 'red tide' events. Topics ... Full description.
