Ocean Acidification and Oysters Lab

This classroom/laboratory activity allows students to understand how marine organisms may be affected by increased ocean acidification caused by climate change. Students explore and analyze the relationship between the growth of oyster larvae and the chemistry of ocean water by using data from the Whiskey Creek Hatchery in Oregon, USA.

Contemporary Climate Oscillations: ENSO and a case study of the Huanghe River

In this activity, students can calculate the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) of El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) based on the mean sea level pressure data spanning 80 years. The calculated SOI can be compared with a case study of the Huanghe River.
