Deep Ocean Currents

Students observe the interactions of different temperatures of water using colored ice and a thermometer and then compare the results with global ocean current solar heating. They identify where floating ice would be found in the ocean, where cold water can be found, and where cold water flows in the ocean. Finally, students determine the mix of water temperatures in the ocean.
