  2. recycling water
  3. chemically changing water
  4. increasing the water supply
Grade 6 Oceanography and Hydrology
Why are cold water currents more likely to be found in the lower parts of the ocean?
  1. Cold fluids are less dense so they sink.
  2. Warm fluids tend to sink.
  3. Cold fluids tend to rise.
  4. Cold fluids are more dense so they sink.
Grade 6 Oceanography and Hydrology
A meteorologist is tracking a hurricane. To measure the strength of the hurricane he needs to see how frequently waves are forming. He decides the best way to do this is to measure the wavelengths. How would he do this?
  1. Measure from the crest of one wave to the crest of another wave
  2. Measure from the crest of one wave to the trough of another wave
  3. Measure from the crest of one wave to the trough of the same wave
  4. Measure from the trough of one wave to the trough of another wave
