Altered Oceans

Altered Oceans

A series of Flash videos, captioned photographs, and information graphics dealing with the effects of human pollution on the world's oceans. This is a visually rich resource for building awareness of the geographic locations and causes of low-oxygen "dead zones," where pollution makes water inhospitable for nearly all life. 21st century learners will be especially challenged by this site. Content requires visitors to interpret maps and graphically displayed information and to think about pollution in interrelated terms.
