  • Investigating Sea Level Rise
  • Carbon Cycle
  • Investigating Ocean Acidification
  • Ocean Deoxygenation
  • Sustainable Fishing 

THEME C. Instruments and technology

  • How can ocean observing technology be explained in a classroom? 
  • How marine observing instruments operate (e.g. Argo floats, gliders, buoys, etc.)
  • How can animals help in ocean observations?
  • How data is transmitted from sea to ocean labs?
