Ocean World

Robert Stewart, Texas A&M College of Geosciences

The Ocean World site has a wide variety of information regarding the ocean. Established by Texas A and M University's Jason Project, Ocean World provides a wealth of information on weather, forams, icebergs, fisheries, coral reefs, waves, El Nino, currents and more. The site contains information for both students and teachers. The teacher section of the site contains background information on all subjects, helpful hints for using the web in the classroom and classroom activities. Student users can access the latest news in oceanography and an abundance of oceanography topics information. There are also additional resources for both teachers or students including book lists, a glossary, a guide to four star sites and helpful links. This is a very useful site for any user looking for information about our oceans
