Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to provide a mechanism for translating current oceanographic research to a broad audience and enhance science and math instruction at the K-12 level. Specific objectives for this project include providing K-12 educators and their students real data in a useful format while at the same time helping oceanographers to study ocean currents, transport of heat, sediment, larvae, and pollutants, as well as to provide ground-truthing of remotely sensed optical data.
