Seafloor Siphon or What’s Going on in the Basement?
The hidden portion of the water cycle is revealed! It is under the seafloor! Students will use temperature data collected from two different sites in the Pacific Ocean to graph the water flow within the oceanic crust! Discoveries of how the water flows in and out of the seafloor will be made. Students will also design and test technology used in the sampling collection methods.
