  • The work described herein entailed three separate but related education/outreach activities aimed at distinct audiences. This portfolio required acquisition of a range of skills in order to effectively convey information in a fashion accessible to each target audience. The first project consists of contributions to a sample chapter of a book summarizing the present-day understanding of coastal Oregon oceanography for the general public. The second project is the development and teaching of two "suitcase" lessons in oceanography on icebergs and sea-ice aimed at a third grade level. The third project entailed public relations in support of the permitting process for oceanographic research in waters adjacent to northern Canada and Greenland. A chronicle of activities was written with the intention of benefiting other practitioners of science and native communities in the region. What follows is a summary of each of these three projects.
