        Sea Surface Temperature

        In this interactive activity produced for Teachers' Domain using data and visualization from NOAA, learn all about sea surface temperature (SST) and why SST data are highly valuable to ocean and atmospheric scientists. Understand the difference between what actual SST readings can reveal about local weather conditions and how variations from normal -- called anomalies -- can help scientists identify warming and cooling trends and make predictions about the effects of global climate change. Discover the relationships between SST and marine life, sea ice formation, local and global weather events, and sea level.
