JPL Salinity Workshop
Twenty images taken at the JPL Salinity Workshop, Pasadena, CA, November 9-10, 2012. At this workshop, selected educators worked closely with eminent scientists to prepare and deliver educational materials related to the NASA Aquarius satellite instrument to measure the salinity of our global oceans. This experience provided the resources to help educators understand, explain and teach 1) how the processes of the water cycle relate to the oceans, 2) how ocean salinity affects ocean circulation, 3) how changes in the ocean's circulation can produce large changes in climate, and 4) how new technology can enhance the gathering and manipulation of oceanic data.
