Frozen Oceans: GCSE Science
This Frozen Oceans booklet outlines the research carried out by the Catlin Arctic Surveys between 2009 and 2011 and can be used in teaching the carbon cycle, ocean acidification and its impact on the Arctic ecosystem for Science GCSE.

Two data activities have been prepared. The first uses a widely referenced longitudinal study on the relation between dissolved carbon dioxide in the ocean and ocean pH. The second uses data collected in the Arctic that looks at the potential impact of ocean acidification on the Arctic ecosystem.

This resource also focuses on the work of real scientists, addressing much of the How Science Works content in GCSE Science specifications including learning from a field research programme, the use of data, the peer review process and how science and society are linked.
