Abstract or Summary
  • An Internet Map Server (IMS) web site was constructed with the goal of helping middle- through high-school students learn about ocean processes. This IMS was developed in conjunction with the activities of the Science & Math Investigative Learning Experience (SMILE) program, and for eventual use with the Oregon Coastal Atlas, an existing IMS site which allows a diverse audience of coastal users to access information about the Oregon coast. The main objective was to create educational lessons making use of a simple IMS site to allow students with basic computer skills to learn about large scale ocean process from actual ocean satellite imagery. This site features remotely sensed ocean images showing physical parameters and includes data from biological surveys conducted during the US GLOBEC (Global Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics) cruise off the Oregon Coast in the summer of 2000. The satellite imagery was selected from different time periods to show students key seasonal trends and differences in physical conditions that occur off the Pacific Coast of Oregon and Northern California. Evaluation of the project has shown that the use of an IMS site allows students who have no prior training or access to GIS software to effectively view and understand the meaning of real ocean data and to perform simple analysis without the need for extensive data processing or software training.
