Description:

This website illustrates how and why NASA's Earth-orbiting satellites measure ocean productivity. Materials highlight key scientific research topics such as harmful algal blooms and ocean optics. This resource help teachers and students discover linkages among marine ecology, phytoplankton, the behavior of light at the ocean surface, and satellite derived ocean color data. Exercises and concepts are also keyed to nationally accepted K-12 science education content standards to facilitate classroom usage.
