About the Science
- This video interactive educates the viewer on the role that satellites play in studying the topography and temperature of sea water. It also shows how satellites can provide useful information for understanding and predicting major oceanographic events.
- Digital satellite imagery is used throughout to show changes in sea surface height and temperature.
- Background information is available by clicking on the "find out more" button.
- Comments from expert scientist: This activity presents a good overview over space missions that are concerned with sea level hights, as well as introduces good examples of why this is a relevant topic of research.
About the Pedagogy
- The video interactive educates the viewer on the roles satellites have played in understanding how sea-level data can be used to understand and predict oceanographic phenomena.
- It is a unique resource showing the relationship between water temperature and sea-level height.
- The video has several components that can be examined separately from a computer.
- There are no prerequisite skills needed.
- It has well-organized information and lay-out.
- There is no suggested teaching sequence and no teachers' guide is provided.
