Updated regularly to remain current with oceanic sciences and ocean events, this manual introduces tools for exploring, analyzing, and interpreting the workings of Earth's ocean. Rather than limiting users to standard flat maps, the inflatable globe allows learners to explore the ocean without distortion.
As a companion to Ocean Studies: Introduction to Oceanography or alone, this manual offers an interactive introduction to the Earth's ocean. In the very first investigation, 1B (Ocean in the Global Water Cycle), the learner finds and marks, on the globe, how the ocean fits onto the world. In later activities, such as in 11B (El Niño/La Niña, the Ocean-Atmosphere Connection), paper strips model El Niño and La Niña sea-surface temperatures and wind directions directly on globe to see the interactions across the planet.
AMS Education Program Earth science courses and the associated learning materials were developed by an experienced team of AMS scientists and science educators to bring high quality and scientifically robust educational resources to university and college classrooms nationwide. Components of the courses are delivered online, allowing students to track real-time weather, ocean and climate events as they occur. These resources were developed to support and sustain the AMS K-13 professional development programs for U.S. educators, and promote AMS disciplines to the general public.
