In this activity, students will study data from satellite temperature images and underwater sensors (CTDs) to look for evidence of an upwelling off the coast of New Jersey. Based on their new knowledge, they will use real-time ocean data from the Coastal Ocean Observatory Laboratory (COOLroom) to create their own ocean weather forecast for the local newspaper. Students will discover that using the same satellite, CTD, and meteorological data that they will learn about, scientists at the COOLroom are learning how to forecast ocean weather. During this activity students will form a hypothesis about what affects ocean temperature. They will discover how scientists collect and analyze ocean temperature data and how atmospheric conditions affect ocean temperatures.
