This press release summarizes the results of research on sediment cores taken from the subtropical Atlantic Ocean. Analyses of organic molecules from planktonic algae in the sediments indicates that large and abrupt temperature changes in warm areas of the ocean occurred at the end of the last glacial period.

This resource uses text, images, maps and a laboratory exercise to explain how differences in the temperature and salinity of ocean water cause the formation of deep-ocean currents. It is part of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's "Ocean Surface Topography from Space" website. This material is also available on the "Visit to An Ocean Planet" CD-ROM. Full description.

This collection of classroom activities covers ocean study topics such as climate and the degree to which the ocean controls climate, physical properties of the ocean (density, salinity, currents, and others), and the scale of ocean life and life support structures. Each activity features an overview, concepts, a materials list, and instructions. Highlighted terms are linked to a glossary. Full description.

Comment on this resource
The ocean and atmosphere continually exchange particles and gases in a kind of ongoing "dialogue" that influences regional and global climate. This site explains the chemical link between the ocean and atmosphere. Emphasis is on the ocean's ability to store and release water vapor and carbon dioxide, both of which contribute to the greenhouse effect. Features include text, a scientific illustration, ...
