Ocean Tracks: Investigating Marine Migrations in a Changing Ocean

NSF Awards: 1222220, 1222413, 1431903, 1431917

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, Undergraduate

Ocean Tracks is a student-friendly interface designed for high school students that uses authentic scientific data from the Tagging of Pacific Predators (TOPP) Program, NOAA’s Global Drifter Program, and the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis at UC Santa Barbara. Students use the Ocean Tracks interface and accompanying curriculum modules to explore the migration patterns of large marine species—making connections between animal movement patterns and characteristics of the ocean environment. In 2014, EDC's Oceans of Data Institute received funding to create a college edition of Ocean Tracks, which is currently being tested in community colleges and universities around the U.S. The Ocean Tracks interface and learning materials are freely available, and are in use in all 50 states as well as at least 85 countries worldwide.
