Data in the Classroom

provides curriculum guides for using real scientific data to investigate earth processes. Each guide focuses on a topic (sea level, water quality, and El El Niño) and starts with a question: How are sea levels monitored and measured? How is water quality monitored? How does El Niño really work? (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)

Interesting Fact:

Temperature is an important parameter to study, because it is a driving factor in the chemical and biological processes that determine how well an aquatic environment can support life. Scientists have found that temperature is the most important factor in determining the primary and secondary production of a community within the estuaries.
Web site features five activities at different levels to help you learn about El Nino using real data.
