Description:

In this activity, learners will plot the distribution of various oozes using information from sediment maps. When skeletal remains of microscopic organisms make up more than 30% of the sediment, it is called "ooze." During this activity, learners will describe the characteristics of different types of seafloor sediments and oozes, predict the distribution of calcareous and siliceous oozes and compare and discuss locations of sediments and oozes.
