The oceans directly influence climate and weather, affecting our daily lives in many ways. Marine science includes all of the sciences related to the sea, including marine biology and oceanography. Providing teachers with new and innovative classroom investigations in a clear and accessible format, MARINE SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS presents 20 experiments in this branch of science, on such topics as plankton, salinity, marine sediments, whales, and ocean regions. Experiments are supported by engaging, full-color figures and line illustrations to help hold students' attention while explaining important marine science topics.
