It's About Time


Investigating Earth Systems approaches Earth System Science through problem-solving, with community-based models that are hands-on and inquiry-driven. In this module, students will investigate: properties of seawater, how ocean water circulates and how currents are formed, different features of the ocean floor and how the ocean floor is mapped, and how the ocean floor got its shape.
