CONGRATULATIONS and all the best!!!


On behalf of the S'Agulla Team and myself, we would like to congratulate you for all the hard work. WELL DONE!!!

You have done lovely presentations to introduce yourselves and showed us a little about the bit of ocean that you enjoy!

Now we know that the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is not even. Compared to last January average SST it is about 0.5-2ºC colder, but looking at the average of the past 13 years is actually about 1ºC warmer! And you don’t agree with the year of smallest and largest SST, year 2003 was both things at different parts of the Mediterranean Sea!

Taking the measure of the Secchi disk didn't go well, but it is an important measure to know indirectly how much plankton there is in the water. Remember that plankton is the base of the marine food chain!

The beaches you have been surveying have hardly any tides, but the Mediterranean Sea is not a lake, otherwise the SST would be the same all over.

You have surveyed natural and artificial beaches and seen that in spite having similar grain size the sand accumulates differently. In turn, it also reacts differently to the action of the sea and wind and that’s why you have different beach profiles!

And it has been fantastic to know your ‘marine menu’, so you love red shrimps but you really catch more sardines! The kinds of fish you eat are mostly small species except in Sardinia you’ve included swordfish. And at the Ebro delta you certainly have a different diet!

Looking forward to seeing your audioguides as soon as possible. Some of you have little to go before the end of the term!

Thank you for all your collaboration!!!!

All the best!

Main species of commercial interest in Palamós

We apologize for the delay but finally we have included 32 species in our infographic. There is much activity in the Port of Palamós and a wide variety of species so it vas very difficult to chose only 10. Some of them were equally representative.

We worked together all second ESO classes to do this infographic.

We hope you like it and you can learn more about our village.

Comments from Sharky! (Marine species)


I can't believe the exciting menus you are showing me in your infographics! 
And I can see that the species that you make more profit are not the same ones that you catch more of, interesting... as a shark I also think that not all the creatures in the sea are as tasty, ha,ha!

Now I have a question for you. You are all studying the Mediterranean sea, but you don't show the same species. Looking at the infographics of the other participating schools, which specie has surprised you more to find? 
Please leave your comments, I would love to hear your opinion.

The sand

To do the exercise we went to the «Cap roig « beach in l'Ampolla, there we took 2 L of sand to do experiment.

We throwed the sand a funel until we have a pila. The funnel was 40 cm of the table.The pile was 7 cm tall and its diameter was 22 cm. The table was white.

ACTIVITAT  2 (Anglès)
Disc de Secchi
We asked our friends from the “W.A.C” if they could make us a Secchi disk for the project.
First we went to the beach, but it didn’t sink at the water because there weren’t enought deep and we couldn’t hired a boad because there are oney boats at the summer.
Then we went to the river, but it isn’t deep enought so we couldn’t do the activity.

Mostreig de l’ aigua
We went to “Marquesa ” the beach from Riomar and there we took 10L of water, we needed two containers to do the experiment.

Experiment 1
To do the firs experiment, we took a 5 cm tall pan and we put a lift to pourthe water. We put a glass of ordinary water. Then we put an other glass of water but this from the beach and  with green colouring. We put is glowly from the less deep side and we saw that the water at room temperature avent down .We add an other glass of cold water with blue coloring we did the same with glass.We saw that this water with red couloring .We repeat the same.This stayed on the others.

Experiment 2
To do the second experiment we took two identical cubs, one with hot water and the other with cold water. We put a 4 cm tall pan on the cups and put ordinary water on the pan. We wired 5 minutes and then blue colouring at the side of cold water and green colouring at the sideof  hot  water. The blue colouring went down and the green (dona voltes ).
