The NeMO curriculum is based on real events and real data: the 1998 eruption at Axial Volcano and the rumbleometer instrument that was stuck in the new lava flow. The activities for the classroom are modeled on how scientists actually investigated this event. This curriculum is intended for middle and high school students in earth science and marine science classes. It is composed of four parts (which are each a separate file): Part 1 - Introduction and Background Information Part 2 - Classroom Activities Part 3 - Movies and Animations Part 4 - Key for Teachers (this part) (less)

This site contains links to course information, outlines, summaries and computer-based drills and exercises, called Virtual Voyages, for an Introductory Oceanography class at San Francisco State University. Virtual Voyages engage students outside of the classroom and cover such topics as the seafloor, earthquakes, plates, ocean currents, beach waves, tides and habitat. There are also links to the Department of Geosciences and San Francisco State University Home Pages. (less)

Ocean and Climate: Chemical Coupling with the Atmosphere

Ocean and Climate: Chemical Coupling with the Atmosphere

The ocean and atmosphere continually exchange particles and gases in a kind of ongoing "dialogue" that influences regional and global climate. This site explains the chemical link between the ocean and atmosphere. Emphasis is on the ocean's ability to store and release water vapor and carbon dioxide, both of which contribute to the greenhouse effect. Features include text, a scientific illustration, and links to other relevant topics, data sets, and satellite missions. (less)

This web collection from the "On the Cutting Edge" workshop series will help undergraduate faculty and students use a new approach to teaching and learning oceanography. The site features the use of models, datasets and visualizations in teaching. The site features a collection of data-rich resources, example teaching activities and visualizations that illustrate oceanography topics. Materials from the 2005 workshop on teaching oceanography are also included. (less)

Tropical Atmosphere Ocean project - data display

This site provides access to real-time oceanographic and meteorological data from approximately ... (more)

This site provides access to real-time oceanographic and meteorological data from approximately 70 moored buoys in the equatorial Pacific Ocean. Data types include wind, air and sea temperature, precipitation, humidity, pressure, radiation, and salinity. The data can be displayed as a summary, time series, latitude/longitude, section, or 3-D animated plot. Data and graphic displays are updated every day and are freely available to the public. This site also maintains pages that provide general information on El Nino and La Nina, with links to other web sites describing climate forecasts and complementary data sets. This resource is part of the Using Data collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/usingdata/ (less)

This resource uses text, images, maps and a laboratory exercise to explain how differences in the temperature and salinity of ocean water cause the formation of deep-ocean currents. It is part of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's "Ocean Surface Topography from Space" website. This material is also available on the "Visit to An Ocean Planet" CD-ROM. (less)

An introduction to chemical oceanography. Reservoir models and residence time. Major ion composition of seawater. Inputs to and outputs from the ocean via rivers, the atmosphere, and the sea floor. Biogeochemical cycling within the oceanic water column and sediments, emphasizing the roles played by the formation, transport, and alteration of oceanic particles and the effects that these processes have on seawater composition. Cycles of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, oxygen, and sulfur. Uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide by the ocean. Material presented through lectures and student-led presentation and discussion of recent papers. (less)
