Teaching Tips

Excellent ocean acidification graphing tool to use in an oceanography/marine biology class. Requires additional information about context, relevance to climate change, and interpretation of data.

Viewing the visualization in its lesson context [link http://www.explainingclimatechange.ca/Climate%20Change/Lessons/Lesson%20... would be useful to the educator before using the tool with students.

The app might best be used in the context of additional information and interpretation.
