NOAA Learning Ocean Science through Ocean Exploration Curriculum

  • Doing Inquiry-based Science with Students:

    • Direct observation

    • Manipulate variables under natural conditions

    • Use model systems which can be manipulated in the classroom

A Watered-down Topographic Map Seamount rises approximately 2000 meters from the surrounding ocean floor to a depth of 1100 meters.

  • Part 1

  • Students would use the descriptions to make the geologic features in a MODEL ocean. The geologic features have been pre-built with clay for this workshop in the interests of time.

  • Part 2

  • Read the cards to decide which feature you have. Follow the student worksheet to make a bathymetric contour map your feature.

  • Read all the instructions BEFORE you start!!


LESSON PLAN 4 Seamount rises approximately 2000 meters from the surrounding ocean floor to a depth of 1100 meters.

Mapping Deep-sea Features


Gulf of Alaska Expedition Seamount rises approximately 2000 meters from the surrounding ocean floor to a depth of 1100 meters.

False-color Multibeam Data Over Satellite Imagery


Mapping Deep-sea Features Seamount rises approximately 2000 meters from the surrounding ocean floor to a depth of 1100 meters.

Translate a data table into a false color image map and then into a 3-D model of a seamount

1. Use the Student Handout with depth ranges and the Bathymetric Data Reduction table to make a false color map.

2. Make a 3-D visualization of a seamount or a submarine canyon. Assemble the foam pieces in the same color order from deepest on the bottom to shallowest on top.

LP 8, 9 & 11 – Ocean Literacy Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts

EP 1 Earth has one big ocean with many

features

FC b. Ocean basins features vary due to

movement of Earth’s lithospheric plates.

EP 2 The ocean shapes Earth’s features

FC e. Tectonic activity influences physical

structure and landforms.

Ocean zones
Ocean Zones Fundamental Concepts

Many abiotic factors contribute to zonation in the

ocean: vertical and horizontal components

  • pressure, light, temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, mineral nutrients

    Vertical zonation is featured in the OE curriculum.

  • Examines light and the impact passing through water has on light in the ocean.

  • photic or epipelagic (0 - 200m)

  • mid-water or mesopelagic (200 - 1000m)

  • aphotic or bathypelagic (below 1000 m)


Light zones in the ocean
Light Zones in the Ocean Fundamental Concepts

PHOTIC/SUNLIGHT ZONE – 200 m.

Plants thrive, food relatively abundant

DYSPHOTIC/TWILIGHT ZONE – 1000 m

Dim light can not support plants, reduced food (20% of photic zone production), temps. 23 >> 4 degree C . (thermocline)

APHOTIC/MIDNIGHT ZONE-below 1000 m Perpetual darkness, only 5% of photic zone food production, 4 degree C. temp

Light at the Bottom of the Deep Dark Ocean


If you drag a net out in the open ocean from 1000 m to the surface, 80 to 90% of the animals caught (mostly fish, shrimp and squid) will be bioluminescent.  That doesn't include all the bioluminescent jellyfish that get shredded by the net.
