Oceans impact on weather

Objective(s) (2 points)

The point of this lab is to show how weather is basically caused through the ocean.

Hypothesis (2 points)

Independent- How the mangroves are planted

Dependent- How forests recover over 5 years

If mangroves are planted all over they will grow more over 5 years

Procedure

At the north beach, your team will implement a project to replant three mangrove species and monitor their growth over five years. The growth of the replanted mangroves will be compared to the natural regrowth of mangroves in the south beach area. Mangrove growth in both beach areas will be monitored via satellite. You will record data for each location about the percentage of mangrove coverage, the number of species in the area, and the average mangrove height in order to assess the health of the beaches.

Conclusion (9 points)

  1. Yes the restoration project was effective because if more mangroves were planted everywhere it will grow more over the 5 years
  2. Counting the number of species in the area is good because you need to know how many are out there and how fast they are growing throughout the years.
  3. After five years, the average height of each mangrove species helped me better evaluate the restoration project
