Float Away… How do we study the ocean?

Using comic strips to communicate how floats are used to study the ocean. In all stages of science communication, from childhood interest, to secondary education, to professionals and research, illustrators step in to translate the information into materials that fit the needs of individuals at every level of understanding. This lesson is intended as an […]

Floating with PUPCYCLE

PUPCYCLE (Phytoplankton response to the UPwelling Cycle) is a research project to measure the physiological responses of phytoplankton to upwelling. Upwelling tends to generate regions of high productivity in the oceans that can fuel phytoplankton blooms. Locating the microscopic phytoplankton that create these blooms can be quite challenging and scientists use a variety of methods, […]

Graphing pH

Graphing pH levels in the ocean and making connections to ocean acidification. Students will explore the topic of ocean acidification. They will construct, analyze and interpret a pH graph. Students will develop analytical thinking skills.
