I regularly use the surface current data from SLGO’S Ocean Forecasts web application in my Experimental Oceanography teaching class; it helps my students to make comparisons between current observations collected at sea aboard the Coriolis II at Mission Internship and digital forecasts delivered online. This is a very instructive exercise that allows students to better understand the complexity of currents in the Gulf St. Lawrence.
