Description:

Internet-based modules link classrooms with studies of New Jersey's coastal ocean. Interdisciplinary projects use real-time or near real-time data to support science concepts: history of oceanography; how and why ocean data is collected; impact of physical factors on phytoplankton, fisheries. Students use data to plot sea surface temperatures and currents, predict ocean weather conditions, and more. Includes profiles of researchers and their jobs, printable teacher guides on COOL tools and projects, tutorials on research instrumentation.
