Curious how the Everblue team managed to make dirt exciting and educational? Check out our brand-new lesson on marine sediments! In this week’s lesson, students will learn how all kinds of scientists study the ocean; how mountains, rivers, and oceans are connected; and how human activity can affect sediment in the ocean.
This week's lesson is based on the paper "Natural and human impacts on centennial sediment accumulation patterns on the Umpqua River margin, Oregon" by Robert A. Wheatcroft and Jeffry C. Borgeld et al. published in 2013. This paper was a joint effort between universities in the Pacific Northwest, including Oregon State University and Humboldt State University, to study coastal system sediment accumulation.
