This self-paced, interactive tutorial examines upwelling in non-coastal regions of the ocean as well as the factors that influence algal blooms. Learners become familiar with ocean dynamics that create a surface deficit of water and cause upwelling, and engage in activities that allow them to detect and measure the areal extent of blooms using remotely-sensed imagery. This resource is part of the tutorial series, Satellite Observations in Science Education, and is the third of three modules in the tutorial, Coastal Upwelling. (Note: requires Java plug-in)
