In this activity, students will make a turbidity current. They will discover how fluids of differing densities interact with one another, learn some ways the densities of fluids can be changed and observe how density currents transport and deposit tremendous amounts of sediment in lakes and in the ocean. Additional options allow students to create and observe different kinds of density currents. Full description.

Users can view imagery and read about tropical Pacific near-surface currents. The analysis is based on satellite altimeter- and scatterometer-derived sea level wind data. Materials presented here include monthly surface current maps, beginning with October 1992 and ending with the latest available satellite data (usually about one month delay). Links to related sites, a publications list, and a presentations ... Full description.

When most people think about the movement of ocean water, they think of waves or tides. Ocean surface currents are less visible, but can move water as much as 100 kilometers (62 miles) per day and distribute everything they contain to distant oceans and seas. This interactive feature illustrates the patterns of ocean currents and the global wind patterns that drive them. Cool and warm currents are ... Full description.

In this lesson students will investigate deep-sea currents such as density and barotropic currents, which can be significantly accelerated near the ocean bottom or near large solid objects like seamounts. This activity focuses on the effects of topography on currents, and how these effects may make some habitats more favorable for certain species such as precious coral communities. As a result of ...

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 guide provides educators with information on the classroom use of buoy data from the Global Drifter Program. This data is produced by an array of over 1000 drifting buoys, monitored by satellite, that make measurements of sea surface temperature (SST) and surface velocity. It is used to track ocean currents and measure properties such as sea surface temperature, salinity, wind speed, and atmospheric ... Full description.
