Eighty six percent of global evaporation and seventy eight percent of global precipitation occur over the oceans. Sea surface salinity is a key variable in understanding how fresh water input and output affect ocean dynamics and provide a better understanding of ocean-atmosphere interactions linking the water cycle, ocean circulation and climate variability. The Aquarius instrument is measuring this much-needed variable.

 Global sea surface salinity
 
The Aquarius mission is brimming with educational content that hits all four areas of STEM: science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The design and engineering of the satellite, the science of ocean observing, the technical specifications for the mission and the importance of understanding global processes through data can all be illustrated using Aquarius as an example.

In this poster, NASA’s education and outreach team illustrates their multi-pronged approach to creating educational products and opportunities for educators to utilize information and data about Aquarius.

COSEE-OS has partnered with the Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP) in a joint effort to increase diversity in the ocean sciences. IBP is a non-profit organization created to design and implement strategies to increase access to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education and careers for diverse underrepresented groups. IBP's mission is to make education and careers in science more accessible to students - particularly to members of underrepresented groups, support faculty and administrators as they work to include students from a variety of backgrounds in their programs, and foster an on-going exchange of ideas and resources between individuals and institutions who are working to navigate their future in the STEM fields.
