Observations (facts) Patterns Synthesis Hypotheses or Theory
(explanation grounded in data and patterns of data) Goals and Objectives
Understand what methods were used historically and are used today to make observations about the bathymetry of the oceans Examine the patterns of ocean bathymetry Understand the connections between ocean bathymetry, the origin of ocean basins, and the theory of plate tectonics Goals and Objectives

As new data emerges, new patterns might emerge, and new syntheses and explanations might emerge. It took centuries to develop a map of the earth Garrison, 2008 Coordinate system - but not numeric Elevations of Earth above sea level: ( topography ) 1 1/19/12 To make a bathymetric (or topograhic) map, need to know: 1. Depth (or elevation) relative to sea level 2. Location on Earth Eye level - relative elevation (elevation change) eye height stadia height Use multiple measurements to measure changes over longer lateral or vertical distance. Using the Eye Level Surveying Equipment 1. level on a tripod 2. tape measure (horizontal) 3. stadia rod (vertical) http://www.marinebio.net/ marinescience/01intro/ tomeas.htm Photo by: Mark R.

This survey mark, first set in 1917, is a bench mark, meaning it marks a point whose elevation above or below a geodetic vertical datum is known. Bench marks are just one type of survey mark set by the National Geodetic Survey and its predecessor organizations. celebrating200years.noaa.go Greenwich, England http:// upload.wikimedia.org/ wikipedia/commons/c/c6/ Primemeridian.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/ wikipedia/commons/6/6e/ Prime-meridian.jpg Bench mark ?
