Impacts of Storms on the Ocean
Created by: Sage Lichtenwalner
In this activity, students will analyze data from gliders and buoys to identify the physical features of the ocean that changed during Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy. They will examine water temperature, wind, wave and backscatter data to describe the temporal and spatial responses to these storms.
