In this Earth science animation, students view an example of upwelling where cooler, nutrient-rich water rises to the ocean surface along a coast. The introduction explains how coastal winds act in conjunction with the Coriolis effect to bring up water from the deep. The animation presents a three-dimensional view of upwelling, using arrows to indicate the direction of wind, the Coriolis effect, and water movement. As the animation progresses, pop-up boxes describe each step in the process. Movie controls allow students to repeat, pause, or step through the animation, which can give students more time to analyze the images and to read the accompanying text.
