Tide Gauge Sleuths

Project:     AKSCI
Theme:Earth Science

In this lesson, students sleuth out the locations of tide gauges by analyzing marigrams in a tsunami event. Students should have prior understanding of how bathymetry affects wave propagation and have a basic understanding of interpreting marigrams (See 9-12 lessons: “Tsunami Speed,” “Wave Behavior,” and “Make a Marigram”).
