Citizen Science Issue Date: 12-17-2017

Cool Spots image Calling all scientists! Your help is needed for an important project called Floating Forests, www.floatingforests.org. Satellites have taken millions of images of the ocean since 1984, but unfortunately, satellites cannot see Giant Kelp, which is crucial for healthy marine ecosystems. Scientists want to identify changes in these underwater forests, but they need help from citizens to examine the images and mark the kelp. Select Get Started for a short tutorial, then learn to identify kelp, clouds and faulty images that you will mark and submit for review in Start Hunting.

Mapping the Sea Floor Issue Date: 10-01-2017

Cool Spots image The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), tinyurl.com/nl39b5y, wants kids to learn about Sea Floor Mapping. Have you ever been on a boat? If you have, you might be aware of the hidden dangers such as rocks, shipwrecks or shallow water that can interfere with safe navigation. Before sea mapping, many shipwrecks could have been prevented if captains had known the locations of underwater hazards. Learn how nautical charts, sonar and other tools guide ships over the millions of miles traveled on the ocean. See how nautical charts are created in How Do We Map the Sea Floor?

Professional Diving Issue Date: 08-20-2017

Cool Spots imageDid you know that professional divers build, maintain and repair underwater structures? The Divers Institute of Technology, diversinstitute.edu/videos, demonstrates how students train for careers underwater. In Underwater Welding Classes, instructor Josh Oxley shows you his state-of-the-art classroom where students complete assignments both above ground and in underwater tanks. Next, take a tour of The Hat Room to see the type of gear divers use to stay safe underwater. Learn why it’s important for students to be able to work in zero-visibility environments in Blackout Diving. Saturation Diving can go as deep as 1,000 feet. Take a look at how top divers work.

Cool Spots imageOcean Literacy, howtosmile.org/topics/ocean-literacy, means understanding how the ocean influences us and how our actions affect it. Essential Principles answer questions you may have wondered about. Ponds Freeze in Winter; find out why the ocean doesn’t. In The Great Plankton Race, you’ll design an organism that neither floats nor sinks. Sounds tricky, but resources will help you along the way. In Ocean in a Bottle, simulate an oil spill to see the effect waves have on oil. Learn why Exploring the Ocean With Robots helps scientists understand it.
