Description:

In this activity, students focus on the physical and chemical processes associated with the Charleston Bump, a series of rocky scarps, mounds, overhangs, and flat pavements that rise from more than 700 m at the surface of the Blake Plateau to within 400 m of the sea surface. They will be able to describe how the Charleston Bump affects the flow of water in the Gulf Stream, describe the potential biological significance of effects induced by the Charleston Bump, and use satellite imagery to obtain information on chlorophyll concentration at selected locations in the Earth's oceans. Students will also describe the chemical processes that produce the rock-like surface of the Charleston Bump as well as how the Charleston Bump affects the flow of water in the Gulf Stream. In addition, students will be able to describe the potential biological significance of effects induced by the Charleston Bump on the Gulf Stream and the chemical processes that produce its rock-like surface.
