Visualizations for Teaching About the Ocean System

This collection of visualizations includes photos, animations, videos, maps and interactive imagery that can be integrated into lectures or classes. The collection is part of an extensive collection created for the Teaching Geoscience with Visualizations workshop.


If you have a visualization that would be helpful for teaching undergraduate oceanography, please contribute to our continually expanding collections.

Details2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 8.9-9 megathrust earthquake off the north eastern coast of Japan triggered a large tsunami, with wave heights reaching up to 10m. These two events caused widespread devastation and destruction in Japan, including washing away entire cities as well as damaging the country's nuclear power plants, thus causing potential meltdowns.
