Comment on this resource
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.

This activity prepares the student 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 instruction in this case study, students will locate, download, format, and finally graph one year of Web-based data for these two variables. Included is a graph that highlights the details ... Full description.

In this activity, users download and graph modeled climate data to explore variability in climate change. Most people know that climate changes are predicted over the next hundred years, but they may not be aware that these changes are likely to vary from region to region. Using data from the University of New Hampshire's EOS-WEBSTER, a digital library of Earth Science data, users will obtain annual ... Full description.

In this activity students use the Web to explore the energies that influence the ocean such as surface circulation, currents, waves, tides, and vertical motion. They are faced with three problems and are asked to choose one of the three and go on a fact finding mission. They can either answer the question, "What causes waves and why are they different in size and shape?", discuss how waves are both ... Full description.

During recent years, large-scale investigations into global climate change and other highly visible issues have taken the lion's share of declining research funds. At the same time, funding for basic research in such core disciplines as physical oceanography, biological oceanography, chemical oceanography, and marine geology has dwindled. Global Ocean Science examines how the largest U.S. ocean research ... Full description.

This module explores ocean acoustics, focusing on the propagation and detection of sound in the marine environment. Sound propagation strongly depends on refraction caused by variations in sound speed, and reflection off the seafloor and sea surface. Detection of sound subsequently depends on its propagation path, background noise from human and natural sources, and the sensors used for detection. Full description.

This radio broadcast reports on the Hidden Ocean cruise, a one-month expedition to catalog what lives in the Arctic ocean and which of these organisms is at risk. The broadcast describes experiments to gather organisms from below drilled ice, from freshwater pools created from melted ice, and at the bottom of the ocean collected from a trawl net. Many of the organisms described depend on the sea ice ... Full description.
