Comment on this resource
Satellite data analysis of both ocean currents and sea surface temperatures will allow students to discover the link that exists between them. Students will download data-based maps on which they will determine and then draw directional movement of currents. Then, in both groups and individually, they will discuss the relationship between the currents and sea surface temperatures, answer a set of ... 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.

In this activity students use the Web to find out if a group of unusual weather and animal behavior incidents in the coastal and interior United States are related to the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO). Students will display their findings to support their argument as to whether ENSO is responsible. Teams will be assessed on how well their stance is supported by research and findings and how ...

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.
