Mystery of the Megaplume

Read through the extensive background information and then lead your geology or physical oceanography class through an investigation of actual temperature anomaly data from the Juan de Fuca ridge. They translate the data onto a plot, giving them a contour drawing of a hydrothermal plume. Resource links and extension ideas are included in the lesson plan, which may be used as an enrichment activity to enhance your normal curriculum.
