ODP: From Mountains to Monsoons
Entry ID: JOI-MTM
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The JOI/U.S.Science Support Program's interactive, education program, "ODP: From Mountains to Monsoons," is intended to bring scientific results of the Ocean Drilling Program into the classroom. In this program the student is invited to join a scientific ocean drilling expedition to the Indian Ocean to investigate the hypothesis that there is a link between the uplift of the Himalayan Mountains and the intensification of the monsoons in Southern Asia. During the program, sediment cores from three sites on the ocean floor are analyzed. At each site, the student works with real scientists in a variety of shipboard laboratories and then discusses the results with the Chief Scientist. Throughout the program the student learns about tools and techniques used by geoscientists and how to combine results from laboratory analyses into a viable theory. An accompanying teacher's manual is available upon request.
