    Seawater composition: an introduction
    Joceline Boucher, Maine Maritime Academy
    In this activity, students collaboratively "build" the hydrologic cycle and use it as a starting point for thinking about the composition of seawater.

    Deep water circulation and chemistry jigsaw
    Michele LaVigne, Bowdoin College
    This activity is designed to introduce students to the way in which thermohaline circulation and the biological pump influence the distribution of nutrients, oxygen, carbon, and radiocarbon in the Atlantic vs. ...

    Observing Salinity Patterns
    Stephanie Jaeger, Green River Community College
    Part 1: Students measure the salinity of samples using a refractometer, and consider the units and density of these values. Part 2: Students apply concepts and reinforce what they've learned about salinity and ...

    Seasonal variation in light, mixing depth and primary productivity in temperate northern hemisphere waters
    Lauren Sahl, Maine Maritime Academy
    In this exercise students work with light, temperature, and phytoplankton biomass proxy (chlorophyll a concentration) data to; Become more skilled in reading and interpreting semi log graphs, temperature profiles, ...

    ConcepTest: Drivers of Ocean Salinity Variations
    Imagine ocean circulation stopped suddenly, with half of the world's salts in the northern hemisphere and half in the southern hemisphere. Assuming no net difference between evaporation and precipitation ...

    ConcepTest: Ocean Element Profiles - 2
    Which element could have a depth profile in the ocean that looks like this? A. It probably has a source from the atmosphere B. It is probably an essential nutrient for phytoplankton C. It probably has a source ...

    ConcepTest: Ocean Element Profiles - 1
    Which element could have a depth profile in the ocean that looks like this? A. Oxygen, an element produced during photosynthesis B. Barium, an element required in trace amounts for micro-organisms C. Nitrogen, a ...

    ConcepTest: Box Modelling: Fluxes & Turnover Times
    Which of the following is true of the simplified ocean-atmosphere water cycle depicted in the box model below? A. There is a net flux of water from ocean to atmosphere. B. There is a net flux of water from ...
