Description:

In this activity, learners will use web-based satellite images and other data to investigate the ocean near six different harbors and determine where nature helps the most when it comes to dealing with an oil spill. They will then fill out a mock proposal form that details the results of their study and the technique they used for analyzing oil-spill risk using sea-surface temperature and wave conditions. Links to the data and the form are available. This activity is part of the Event-Based Science (EBS): Remote Sensing Activities
