OOI Data Explorations
What are Data Explorations?
The OOI Data Explorations provides a series of free online interactive data visualizations that make use of cutting-edge research datasets available from the OOI. Each exploration engages students in a quick (15-20 minute) activity, using datasets that were selected to augment concepts that are commonly taught in introductory oceanography courses. You can easily integrate these data activities into your courses, ideally as in-class group activities as part of an active-learning strategy. An Instructor Guide for each exploration is also available, and explains how each activity can be used to support a specific phase of the Learning Cycle.
The following Data Exploration collections were developed in 2016 and 2017 as part of a pilot project.
- Exploring Primary Production with OOI Data
- Exploring Properties of Seawater with OOI Data
- Exploring Tectonics & Seamounts with OOI Data
