A journey to a cold seep
How scientists study methane in the Arctic ocean: A paired teaching lesson plan
Where are and what happens at cold seeps and how scientists study them.
After this lesson, students should be able to:
Relate different datasets by observing and describing scientific maps
Differentiate between carbon dioxide and methane gas
Clarify misconceptions about greenhouse gas
Explain what cold seeps are and why most gas/methane hydrates
occur at continental margins
Describe some of the methods scientists use to locate and study
Prior to this lesson, students should be familiar with understanding maps, molecular structure and bonding, and the greenhouse effect and gases.
