Using the pH Scale and Carbonic Acid Formation to Understand the Effect of Ocean Acidification on Organisms with Calcium Carbonate Shells.
Richard Rueb, Clackamas Community College
In this lab activity students use the pH scale and the reaction of carbon dioxide with water to understand ocean acidification and make predictions regarding the effect of ocean acidification on marine organisms by experimentally determining the effect of pH of calcite dissolution.

Identifying Plate Tectonic Boundaries for a Virtual Ocean Basin
Steve Reynolds, Arizona State University - Downtown Phoenix
Students observe an ocean basin and two continental margins to identify possible plate boundaries and predict where earthquakes and volcanoes would occur. They also draw the boundaries in cross section.

Sea Floor Spreading II
Activity and Starting Point page by R.M. MacKay. Clark College, Physics and Meteorology.
Students import ocean bathymetry data from text files, they then use Excel to graph these observations along with model prediction to assess the model's ability to simulated the observed topographic features ...

Calculation of the Magnitude of Lunar and Solar Tidal Forces on the Earth
Randal Mandock, Clark Atlanta University; Randal Mandock, Clark Atlanta University
Project in which students calculate the magnitude of lunar and solar tidal forces on the earth. They calculate the solar tidal effect relative to the lunar tidal effect and the relative solar tidal effect for spring-tide conditions.

Question of the Day: Ocean Waves #1
Sketch a simple diagram of an ocean wave and label its crest, trough, and wavelength. You are in a boat and you have a stop watch. How do you measure the period of the ocean waves passing beneath you? What ...
