Description:

This lesson will help students understand how primary production varies at different times of the year in the ocean over the southeastern U.S. continental shelf. Students will use satellite imagery to obtain information on chlorophyll concentration at selected locations in the Earth's oceans, explain the relationship between chlorophyll concentration and primary production, and describe seasonal variations in primary production off the southeastern coast of the United States. Students will also be able to describe the potential significance of observed variations in primary production to biological communities.
