SeaWiFS Project: The Living Ocean Teacher's Guide

Gene Feldman, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center

This resource ties together physical and biological aspects of ocean color for high school students. Specific sections discuss life in the oceans, the appearance of the ocean from space, phytoplankton (the little link in a big food chain), carbon (where does it go?), and the Earth as a giant greenhouse. There are also activities that accompany these lessons.
