Test your ocean knowledge

http://www.nosb.org/

On this website there's a box on the right that says Test Your Ocean Knowledge. Click on it and there will be a quiz with 5 questions.

Lets see how really smart you are.

Those are some hard questions!

I got a 3/5. It's telling me I'm maybe not cut out for the ocean.

Only 2/5. I still don't see how a cold winter in the U.S. would cause an El Nino, but whatever haha.

I took a guess on all but one of them.

Those questions are actually harder than most of the questions used in the real NOSB rounds.....but the questions that they do ask are still pretty hard! I'm always amazed at how well the high school kids do with them.

BTW I've been a timekeeper for the RI/CT NOSB regional competition for the past 4 years. It's held where I go to school.

ha ha.....it's been a while since I was in high school! I actually volunteer to help run the competition, the school were I am is the URI Graduate school of Oceanography. So I would definitely be ineligible to compete! As I sit and time the competitions I do try to answer the questions myself, though, and they are tough! Even after 4.5 years of oceanography grad school! 2 years ago the team that won our regionals went on to win nationals (Cranston West) which was cool.
