Activity

What does "spatial resolution" mean? Some answers using MARGINS data. part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:MARGINS Mini-Lessons
The main objective of this presentation is to understand the concept of spatial resolution by looking at the concepts of point, grid and pixel. This experience will introduce us to these concepts by using a map generated by virtual ocean of the western of the Marina Trench, a NSF-MARGINS focus area. This activity confronts students with maps ranging from lowest to highest resolution, questioning our knowledge of the world's oceans' surface, whose main part remains unknown in its details.
