National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (DOC), Rockville, MD.
These activities are designed to teach about the sediments of Hudson Canyon. Students investigate and analyze the patterns of sedimentation in the Hudson Canyon, observe how heavier particles sink faster than finer particles, and learn that submarine landslides are avalanches of sediment in deep ocean canyons. The activity provides learning objectives, a list of needed materials, key vocabulary words, background information, day-to-day procedures, internet connections, career ideas, integrated subject areas, evaluation tips, extension ideas, and National Science Education Standards connections.
