Seasonality in the Ocean

Seasonality in the Ocean
Created by: Sage Lichtenwalner

This investigation uses sea surface temperature (SST) and ocean color maps to introduce students to the concept that there are temporal and spatial changes in ocean primary production and water temperature in the ocean. The students analyze SST, chlorophyll, and water temperature data from the Eastern U.S. to describe the patterns and trends in the data.
