A Field Method for Studying Surface Currents from the Shore, and Using the SMBO and SCCOOS Data Portals to Help Examine Surface Currents

Young scholars examine the difference between surface and shore currents present from Alaska to California. In groups, they measure the shore currents and compare them to actual data from SMBO and SCCOOS databases on how they relate to surface currents. They share their results with the class to end the lesson.
