In this activity, students will study data from satellite temperature images and underwater sensors (CTDs) to look for evidence of an upwelling off the coast of New Jersey. Based on their new knowledge, they will use real-time ocean data from the Coastal Ocean Observatory Laboratory (COOLroom) to create their own ocean weather forecast for the local newspaper. Students will discover that using the ... Full description.

This site from SERC's Starting Point presents sample Gallery Walk questions about the ocean. Questions examine the manner in which ocean energy and water exchange impact the atmosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere and discuss salinity, temperature, density, primary production, turbidity, and current patterns for the various environments. The questions are organized according to the cognitive level ... Full description.

This semester-long course is designed to introduce science undergraduates to ocean and climate related processes that can be used to teach general physical concepts (e.g. density, buoyancy, pressure, heat and temperature, waves), using a variety of hands-on activities. Students will be introduced to pedagogical methods that will give them the tools to communicate their science knowledge to broader ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
Interactions between Earth's atmosphere and oceans drive weather and climate patterns. Although these interactions and patterns are complex, they are also predictable. This video animation explains precipitation patterns by illustrating how differences in ocean surface temperatures affect atmospheric pressure, creating winds, and how wind patterns can in turn affect ocean surface temperatures. The ... Full description.
