March 7-10, 2005, Myrtle Beach, SC
This site features remotely sensed ocean images showing physical parameters and includes data from biological surveys conducted during the US GLOBEC Cruise off the Oregon Coast in the summer of 2000. The satellite imagery was selected from different time periods to show students key seasonal trends and differences in physical conditions between years that occur off the Pacific Coast.
The IMS site and the educational modules that were developed in conjunction will be demonstrated. The process of building the site, working with student outreach organizations, working with teachers, and key considerations in planning for construction of an IMS site will be topics for discussion.
