Comments from Sharky!!! (The Water)

Hello!!!! I'm Sharky and the S'Agulla Team have told me that you are studying my environment, the SEA!!!

So let's see what have you found out so far...

Ups! IES Tres Turons 1C I am afraid you will have to go over your GPS coordinates because they are inland...

Wow! Is the Mediterranean Sea like a lake???? You hardly have tides! But is it really???
Then how do you explain the differences of SST in La Picòrdia beach in Arenys de Mar?
You also have different results regarding last year's average SST and with the year of smallest SST oscillation. How is that? If it had been a lake it should be all the same, should it not?

I will give you a hint: now with the activity number 3 you are also going to look at your beach from above. What shape does it have? Is it a straight strip of sand as you find in lakes or is it rather triangular? 

If you still cannot understand what may be the cause of your results you can always ask the collaborators of the Oceans project. Your teacher has a detailed list!

Great to speak to you! And please post the photos of your beach, do not make me cross the whole Ocean to see it!!! THANK YOU!!!
