21 Satellite Educators AssociationCalifornia Science Conference 2013 Finding Fish Using Satellites - 21 Extension Activities Access ocean topography image, same data – compare Use same technique to predict different fish caught from different port Devise a plan to ground-truth the satellite-based SST Find & process a MODIS image for SST Devise a plan for determining in which season coastal eddy currents and upwelling are most common Explore linear relationship between SST and pixel brightness value in Level 3 data

22 Satellite Educators AssociationCalifornia Science Conference 2013 Finding Fish Using Satellites - 22 CA Science Content Standards Grade 6: Ecology – 5. Organisms in ecosystems exchange energy and nutrients among themselves and with the environment. (e) Grade 6: Investigation and Experimentation – 1. Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conduction careful investigations. (b, c) Grades 9-12: Biology/Life Science - 6. Stability in an ecosystem is a balance between competing effects. (a, b, c) Grades 9-12: Investigations and Experimentation – 1. Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations. (a, i)
