This data visualization tool puts all of the WOA 1998 data and a custom viewer onto one CD-ROM. NOAA's WOA data include a variety of ocean chemistry and temperature data as climatologies. Students can explore these data to learn about the range of conditions across the Earth's oceans. They can also learn about data visualization by exploring dozens of different color schemes that tend to reveal or conceal information. The WOA viewer CD-ROMs are free for teachers to use and copy.
