SCI 209 Week 1 NOAA Activity Part 1:
Ocean Exploration

Note. This is the first step to an ongoing project with
additional sections due in Weeks Three and Five. Review the requirements of the
other sections due in Weeks Three and Five before selecting your explorative
mission for this assignment.



Navigate to
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) site at http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/



Select Explore from the menu, then select Ocean Exploration listed
below Oceans. Choose an explorative mission that took place at a marine
sanctuary or an ecological preserve.



Review the
chosen exploration.



Develop a
10- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation.


  • For
    assistance with this type of assignment, review the UOPX Help with
    Microsoft Power Point Assignment.




Address the following in your presentation:


  • List the
    basic categories of Earth's chemical composition and physical properties,
    with an emphasis on how these factors relate to the ocean.

  • Describe at least
    one of the early research theories about the origins of life on Earth.

  • List the
    modern tools of research used in your chosen ocean exploration.

  • List the
    goals and objectives of the mission and how it relates to the National
    Ocean Service's overarching mission.

  • List the
    areas to be explored by the mission.

  • What
    challenges did the team encounter?

  • Explain how
    the data was collected and what modern technologies were used.

  • Explain
    whether the explorative mission was successful in its findings.

  • How can the information
    gathered from the mission benefit the field of oceanography?



List major points in the slides. Include detailed
explanations in the speaker notes section that correlate to each point.



Include videos, audio, photos, diagrams, or graphs as appropriate.



Format your
presentation consistent with APA guidelines.

SCI 209 Week 2 The Creation of the
Ocean Floor Paper

Prepare a 350- to 700-word paper describing the basic
theories associated with the creation of the ocean floor.



Include the
following in your paper:


  • Identify
    three different plate boundaries and list the outstanding features of each
    boundary.

  • List one
    natural event that occurs as a direct result of plate boundary
    interactions.

  • Compare and
    contrast ideas behind plate tectonics and the theory of continental drift.
    Does one idea seem more plausible than the other? If so, why? Base your
    findings on the natural event you identified earlier in the paper.



Format your paper consistent with APA
guidelines. Reference a minimum of two outside sources, other than your text,
such as credible websites and articles that support your findings.

SCI 209 Week 3 Seawater Paper

Prepare a
350- to 700-word paper in which you describe the chemical properties of water,
specifically seawater.



Research and
choose two different methods that are currently being used to convert seawater
to drinkable water. Include the following in your paper:


  • Describe the chemical and
    physical properties of seawater.

  • Describe two different methods
    used to convert seawater into drinkable water.

  • List a county or region in which
    this method of conversion is currently in use.

  • Identify the benefits and
    potential hazards of converting seawater to drinkable water.



Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines. A minimum of
one reference is required.

SCI 209 Week 3 NOAA Activity Part 2:
Marine Pollution

Review your Week One NOAA Activity Part 1: Ocean
Exploration mission and findings. The focus of this assignment (NOAA Activity
Part 2) must relate to issues from marine pollution.



Select an
environmental group that could directly benefit from the research conducted in
the mission.



Develop an
8- to 10-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation.


  • For
    assistance with this type of assignment, review the UOPX Help with
    Microsoft Power Point Assignment.



Address the following in your presentation:


  • A brief
    description of the chosen environmental group and their mission statement

  • A brief
    description of the type of marine pollution addressed in the mission

  • Which region
    the pollution is prevalent

  • How the
    pollution is affecting the surrounding ecosystem

  • What
    measures can be taken to avoid this type of pollution in the future

  • How the
    findings from the mission can aid the environmental group in reducing
    reoccurring occurrences of this form of pollution

  • Include any
    references as needed.



List major points in the slides. Include detailed
explanations in the speaker notes section that correlate to each point.



Include videos, audio, photos, diagrams, or graphs as
appropriate.



Format your
presentation consistent with APA guidelines.

SCI 209 Week 4 Natural Ocean Disasters
Paper

Prepare a 700- to 1,050-word paper in which you explain the
relationship between the ocean and the shoreline. Select and describe a
naturally occurring ocean disaster that results from the relationship between
weather and climate. Include the following in your paper:


  • What caused
    the natural event?

  • Would the
    effects of this event be any different if it occurred at a high or low
    tide? If so, how?

  • How does
    this event change the wave action of the ocean?

  • Which ocean
    currents--deep and surface--pass near or through the disaster impact area?

  • Is the
    disaster affected by surface or deep ocean currents? If so, how?

  • Explain how
    the ocean-atmosphere relationship influences weather and climate.



Format your paper consistent with APA
guidelines. A minimum of two references are required.

SCI 209 Week 5 The Flow of Energy

Create a
diagram, chart, or illustration in which you depict the flow of energy in
marine ecosystems. You may use either a web format in which food chains are
included or a biomass pyramid format. The assignment must include the following:


  • Title Page

  • Diagram, chart, or illustration
    of a web format or biomass pyramid

  • Description of primary
    productivity

  • Description of a method used to
    measure the amount of primary productivity

    marine organism from the region and discuss its adaptation to the
    environment due to natural circumstances or pollution.

  • Discuss its
    relationship to the other organisms that live in the same food chain.

  • Include
