HOT DOG TOSS
Students will be interpreting and analyzing HOT-DOG real-time data from the Aloha Station to compare graphs with a computer simulation. Specifically, students will make observations of patterns within time-series visualizations of temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, nitrates, and phosphates. They will discover evidence between these ocean graphs and the initial visual simulation to make connections about El Nino and La Nina years. Finally, they will generate a conclusion, and synthesize their learning with a presentation. (How does ocean El Nino and/or La Nina affect humans with data to support their presentation? How does this relate to climate change?).
