The “Seabird Populations” activity provides students with a (guided) opportunity to explore data and use it to make inferences and draw conclusions about a specific seabird population. The first of the three activities (murre studies) allows students to familiarize themselves with the specific study site and methods through exploration with Google Earth, photos, and tracking […]
In this lesson students will read about the properties of waves as the relate to sound. Students will also experience demonstrations of how longitudinal and transverse waves move through a medium. Students will also be introduced to spectrograms and how they allow for us to study sounds. They will then apply this knowledge to try […]
The earthquake off the coast of Japan in March, 2011, and the subsequent tsunami, deposited nearly 5 million tons of debris (known as JTMD) into the ocean. This created a unique opportunity to study the dispersal of floating debris, and the organisms attached to it, by the surface ocean currents. In Lesson 1 students will […]

Nitrogen and Phosphorus are essential to life, but how do they travel through the environment? This activity will give students an opportunity to explore this question with a lesson on the cycles of these elements. The introductory video has a built in assessment that can be used to create a flipped classroom lesson and the […]

Research programs at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) encompass the entire ocean, from the surface waters to the deep seafloor, and from the coastal zone to the open sea. The need to understand the ocean in all its complexity and variability drives MBARI's research and development efforts.
