Pretty sure N. Pacific is the largest
That's what I thought. I just wanted to double check though.

How do you "know" when you are done editing your cheat sheet?

Typically when you have gone through the rules manual and have everything that you don't know already written on your cheat sheet (which I usually refer to as study guides). I commonly find that I am editing my study guide throughout the year. Usually after invitationals, if there is a topic that I don't know/understand, I will add more information on it to my study guide. But for the most part, I would say you are "done" when you have a comprehensive review of every topic listed on the official rules manual.

You don't. You have to keep adding information until you run out of time. But in a more realistic sense, your cheat sheet should include everything on the rules, definitions, abbreviations, and diagrams. Like a ton of diagrams.

For me it depends on the event. For some (such as Fossils) I can understand the rules well enough to know when I'm done, and then just trim it from there. For others (including Dynamic Planet) I just keep going endlessly until the tournament day arrives.

Hello, I am new so I am a bit confused about this event... I was wondering if someone could tell me about the section on deep ocean circulation- water masses, deep ocean circulation, and ocean overturning. Thanks in advance! :D :D

Honestly, you are going to have to google it and try learning it on your own. It is pretty confusing and I have not quite learned it completely yet. Include lots of pics on your cheat sheet and read up on it. (pics should cover most questions regarding this topic)

Does anyone know of any websites to which we can practice representative tasks similar to those presented to us at the national level? Does NOAA have any resources I haven't found?

For the distribution of chemicals, do you think that this website:
http://www.mbari.org/chemsensor/distribution.html

would help for vertical and horizontal structures?
