The #FirstDayOfSpring in the Northern Hemisphere is only ten days away, and as the season begins to change, the weather continues to look different across Earth!

At the beginning of March, we asked you if the weather in your area was cold or stormy, like a lion or sunny and mild, like a lamb.

See the results below, collected across our social media accounts.

Photo caption: Snorkelers observe the massive site of Joseph S. Fay from the surface. Today, the broken remains of Joseph S. Fay are a fascinating archaeological and recreational site and are located in Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Most of the wreck is located in 19 feet of clear water only 300 yards from shore, ideal for divers, snorkelers, and paddlers to explore. If you want to stay dry, look at the section of the wreck located on shore. (Shawn Parkin)

Check out this Handbook for Increasing Ocean Literacy, developed by the National Marine Educators Association with support from us! This is a resource for you to help teach, learn, and communicate about the #ocean. It can be used by anyone, anywhere, who seeks to increase #OceanLiteracy and #EnvironmentalLiteracy.

#NOAAResourceOfTheDay

A Handbook for Increasing Ocean Literacy, developed by NMEA with support from NOAA Education, is a resource for you to help teach, learn, and communicate about the #ocean. It can be used by anyone, anywhere, who seeks to increase #OceanLiteracy and #EnvironmentalLiteracy. Ocean Literacy is an integral part of the UN Ocean Decade and this Handbook is an endorsed #OceanDecade activity, recognized as a contribution toward achieving “…the ocean we want” now and in the future. https://www.marine-ed.org/ocean-literacy/handbook

Check out our new #Knauss Fellow leading a community science initiative before joining our team at NOAA's Office of Education.

#CitizenScience

Before Alfonso Macías-Tapia began his #Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship at NOAA Education, he led a community science initiative, "Measure the Muck," an effort to measure contamination in floodwater as a Ph.D. student at Ocean & Earth Sciences at Old Dominion University.
