Our Ocean is Trending What we can learn about the ocean’s oxygen and chlorophyll levels by using GO-BGC and SOCCOM Floats.What can students learn about the ocean’s oxygen and chlorophyll levels by using Argo and GO-BGC, and SOCCOM Floats? Students will learn how to access data from GO-BGC floats in order to analyze and compare properties such as dissolved nitrates, oxygen and chlorophyll levels. Through observing the diversity of factors that are found throughout the ocean basins. Students will be able to correlate how the ocean supports such a diversity of life and ecosystems.

Many of the sedimentary rocks now exposed on land were formed in the ocean. Ocean life laid down the vast volume of siliceous and carbonate rocks.3.A: The ocean controls weather and climate by dominating the Earth’s energy, water and carbon systems.
