Chemistry OOI Data Workshop
May 19, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - May 21, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
Utilizing high volumes of data for research and education increases both opportunities and challenges to analyzing and synthesizing these data into scientific understanding. We are pleased to offer two workshops that explore the unprecedented opportunities to engage undergraduate learners in authentic data experiences using real-world data sets, models, and simulations from the OOI.
This workshop will focus on OOI data sets that explore salinity, pH, and PCO2.
We will dive deeper into aspects that underlie ocean acidification and the impacts of climate change on the ocean by investigating data of changes in oceanic pH with depth and comparisons of oceanic pH with air and water pCO2. We will also unpack numerous aspects of what we can learn from the ocean when looking at temporal and spatial variability in salinity. Through the data, we will investigate seasonal and depth variations overall and properties of the halocline. In addition, we will use the data to illuminate processes that change salinity throughout the surface ocean.
