Sample Inquiry Questions Note: For a question to be testable, the locality, time, and variables must be specific.
- Do the surface currents change from season to season?
- During which season do surface currents seem to be stronger/weaker?
- Can a correlation be drawn between surface currents and the bathemetry of Lake Michigan?
- Why do you suppose surface currents are faster on some day than others?
