View Resource UNH Coastal Ocean Observing Center

The Coastal Ocean Observing Center at UNH collaborates with GoMOOS and WHOI, and collects data via satellite, buoys, and boats throughout the Gulf of Maine. The COOA site features introductory information on ocean observing, real time data, and an education and outreach section which features tutorials, activities, professional development information, a glossary, and much more.

View Resource American Meteorological Society Online Ocean Studies Diversity Project

Online Ocean Studies has been developed by the AMS for undergraduate institutions to license and offer in local-national teaching partnerships. The course, focusing on the use of real-world ocean data and investigations, examines the world ocean with an Earth system perspective. The AMS, in cooperation with NOAA, is inviting minority-serving institutions to join the effort to provide student...

View Resource Ocean Surface Topography From Space (TOPEX/Poseidon Missions)

A joint US and France project, the TOPEX-Poseidon satellites continuously measure sea surface height. The oceans store and transport solar heat, helping to keep Earth's climate in balance. The overall shape of the oceans' "hills" and "valleys" is called ocean surface topography, or OST. Precise knowledge of OST is essential to predict the effects of catastrophic storms. Educational resources...

View Resource Maryland Department of Natural Resources: Eyes on the Bay

This easy to use, comprehensive website includes a wealth of real-time and archived data, as well as several lesson plans. Using the highly interactive map, you can access stations that measure parameters including air and water temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH, and water clarity in the Maryland portion of Chesapeake Bay. The lesson plans cover salinity, dissolved oxygen, and harmful...

View Resource National Geographic Xpeditions Wave Heights

Students investigate parts of ocean waves and their measurements. An on-line wave simulator allows then to study the effects of wave height, length and period on a boat's movements. Using records of tsunami waves, students compare these heights to familiar landmarks and test a hypothesis about possible relationships between wave height and ocean size and depth.
