Can you please tell me- I have my Regional competition in three weeks and am NOT prepared in a couple units



What did you put for distribution of metals

can you give me a brief description of how to do the following:

• given the water temperatures at various depths in a column of seawater, teams will construct graphs and identify and label the thermocline
• identify the signature of different water masses for a contour plot of oxygen
• identify topographic features of ocean regions using a seafloor map
• write a hypothesis to explain changes in water salinity in high latitude ocean regions
• analyze and interpret data related to water pH in selected regions that may explain changes in barrier reef formations
• given a set of vertical profiles of salinity in an estuary, identify the type of estuary (fjord, salt wedge, well- mixed, partially mixed) and discuss implications for bottom water hypoxia

I don't think it can be made any clearer than that....

Sorry I haven't checked this website in a couple days- Yes, that website would be good for a basic overview of chemical distribution. I also used a few college level textbooks to help me with this. For distribution of metals, there are two types of metal- conservative and scavenged. Conservative elements are fairly constant both horizontally and vertically, while scavenged metals have a concentrational pattern similar to oxygen, but can also vary greatly depending on their source. Scavenged metals are removed from dissolution in ocean water quickly.

Honestly my best advice for you would be to either:

a. read an earth science textbook
b. use resources on soinc and the links from NOAA
c. go through each letter on the study guide and google each term. Look at a couple of the links and then paraphrase what you read onto your study guide. This is the best way of remembering and learning

Thanks

for the relationship of fisheries and ocean colors, is it to find fish population?

I think so. Its about the relationship between chlorophyll concentrations in the ocean and fish populations I believe.

What earth science textbook do you recommend? This is my first year doing Dynamic Planet.

could someone help me understand this? i have regionals Saturday and I am having trouble with this. thank you!! :)

identify the signature of different water masses from a contour plot of oxygen

I typically do most of my studying off websites now, but last year when I was first starting this event the textbook Earth Science (12th or 14th edition, either works) by Tarbuck and Lutgens provided a solid basic understanding of the event. However, you're going to have to dig deeper on the internet for some of the more advanced topics like estuaries, wave types and water masses. This year I was using the textbook "Introduction to Marine Biogeochemistry" by Susan Libes to help me with chemical distributions, it has a vary high level overview (you can find a pdf of it online). Of course you shouldn't feel the need to go out and buy these textbooks if you don't have access or resources, there are plenty of just as effective sources of learning online.
