OOI Data Labs Webinar: Plate Tectonics and the Seafloor
From Janice McDonnell
Presented by Benjamin Jordan, Brigham Young University – Hawai’i and Paul Webb, Roger Williams University
This new OOI Data Exploration invites students to explore the relationship between plate interactions and topographic features on the seafloor – and the potential for tsunamis – by using bathymetry and earthquake data. This data widget has also been expanded into a multi-part activity as part of an Online Laboratory Manual (in pilot testing) that uses OOI data to explore oceanographic topics. The presenters will review the widget and activities, suggest ways to incorporate it into coursework, and share preliminary implementation results.
Recorded on 10/22/2020 via ZOOM.
