These Data Explorations were developed by participants to the 2019 OOI Data Labs Development Workshops. Each topic has 1-3 activities that can be used with students to augment your teaching of the concept. Each activity generally focus on one phase of the Learning Cycle, so you can select the variations that work best with your teaching sequence and content/skill goals. An Instructors' Guide is also available for each topic below, which includes additional information and suggestions for how to incorporate the activities into your courses.
Explore seawater characteristics that are correlated with changes in primary productivity, particularly during the summer in the North Pacific vs. the North Atlantic
Explore how earthquake data helps explain changes in the topography of an underwater volcano
Explore oceanographic conditions that negatively impact shellfish populations
The following explorations were prototyped over the course of the project, but they were not tested in classrooms, nor do they include Instructors' Guides. However, they are included here in the hopes that they may still be of use to interested faculty. If you have suggested text to add, please let us know!
Special thanks to all of our 2019 development workshop participants and staff who helped make these activities possible.
