Ocean Currents

Deep Ocean Currents Model

As part of our research into ocean currents, students observed a demonstration that showed how deep ocean currents form.  The hot and cold water (identified with red and blue food coloring) caused circulation in our model ocean.  We then used the NOAA website to see the path ocean currents take on our planet.  Feel free to explore the site on your own (the site navigation is on the left of the linked page).
