Comment on this resource
In this lesson, students explore some of the magnetic evidence which led to the discovery of sea floor spreading. Students should have an introduction to plate movements and crustal processes before working on this activity. They will use compasses to simulate magnetometers, exploring a model sea floor (prepared by the teacher) which has concealed bar magnets. They will then be asked to explain how ... 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.

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.

The Atmosphere-Ocean Model is a computer program that simulates the Earth's climate in three dimensions on a gridded domain. The model requires that the user enter two kinds of input, specified parameters and prognostic variables, and will generate two kinds of output, climatic diagnostics and prognostic variables.

In this lesson students discover that measurements from space can tell us the overall sea level height, as well as the heights of waves. They will select twenty data points at various latitudes, recording ocean and waves heights, and then make a graph of this data. This activity uses a linear equation to quantify the relationship between wave height and sea level. Full description.
