The Ocean Motion website provides resources developed for inquiring minds both in and outside the classroom, for reading level grades 9-12.  Included is a comprehensive review of the surface circulation of Earth’s ocean and classroom investigations appropriate for various disciplines at the high school level.


The site features a toolbox of satellite and model data, quick evaluation quizzes and a timeline of ocean explorers to inspire investigation of ocean surface current patterns and how they relate to issues of navigation, weather/climate, natural hazards and marine resources.
