Ocean engineers and scientists are transforming the way we experience and understand the ocean through Integrated Ocean Observing Systems (IOOS). For the first time, there will be continuous, sustained, near-realtime, multi-dimensional data available from the oceans, collected both from within the oceans using sensors systems and above using remote sensing methodologies. These data make possible inquiry-driven ... Full description.

LabWrite is an online resource designed to help students learn science by writing better laboratory reports. It is organized into four major parts, reflecting the chronological experience of the lab. PreLab asks students to respond to a set of questions that lead them through a scientific understanding of the lab before they actually begin. InLab provides resources and help for students as they set ... Full description.

This activity prepares you to launch an investigation of the relationship between precipitation and streamflow for a local watershed. It can enrich a study of the water cycle. Following the step-by-step instructions in a case study you will locate, download, format, and finally graph one year of Web-based data for these two variables. The graph highlights the details of this often complex precipitation-streamflow ... Full description.

In this activity, students explore the 'stick-slip' mechanism of earthquake generation. They will learn about the concepts of stick-slip sliding, static friction, energy conversion, and the elastic properties of materials. Students work together to develop and test a hypothesis, make measurements, graph and write a short report on the results. Full description.

In this laboratory activity, students will determine the oxygen tolerance of several kinds of bacteria. Students should have an elementary knowledge of the nitrogen cycle. They should grasp the importance of nitrogen in protein synthesis and understand that nitrogen, though not directly involved in primary production (photosynthesis), is part of many connected biochemical pathways.
