Biomes of the World -

Mia's insight:

This article is published by the Radford university, so the source can be viewed as trustworthy. The data was published last year so it is also very relevant. The website delves into different sections where it explains different colonies. It isn't extremely detailed but does serve as a starting resource. Unfortunately the website doesn't site any sources.

News Source

This source is current, as it was just published two months ago on September, 11. It is important for it to be current because it is discussing the chemical reactions of the deep ocean and how different elements interact with each other. This source is also accurate because at the end of the source it tells you where the author conducted the research and with whom he did it with. It also lists where his colleagues went to college who helped him. These leads to it also being authoritative because he conducted his research at educational institutions and under a grant of the National Science Foundation.

Breaking deep-sea waves reveal mechanism for global ocean mixing

Breaking deep-sea waves reveal mechanism for global ocean mixing | Deep Ocean | Scoop.it

“ (Phys.org) —Waves breaking over sandy beaches are captured in countless tourist photos. But enormous waves breaking deep in the ocean are seldom seen, although they play a crucial role in long-term climate cycles.”

Case Study

This source is accurate because the study was conducted at University of Washington and the Geophysical Reasearch Letters Journal published it. Knowing that those two credible sources were involved with this case study gives me reassurance that it is accurate. It is also very current because it was published two months ago on September 9, 2013. The source is also relevent, as it discusses the deep-sea waves mechanism for global ocean mixing in a way that the reader can easily understant, while staying relevant and connected to the overall topic. The purpose is to inform the reader about deep-ocean turbulence and the study they conducted on it. The author constantly uses quotes and credible sources to back up her points, which makes the purpose more reliable and truthful.

David Gallo: Life in the deep oceans | Video on TED.com

With vibrant video clips captured by submarines, David Gallo takes us to some of Earth's darkest, most violent, toxic and beautiful habitats, the valleys and volcanic ridges of the oceans' depths, where life is bizarre, resilient and shockingly...

Mia's insight:
C- This video was filmed in 1998, while that was around 15 years ago it doesn't invalidate anything he is saying. The main was information was presented in that video is through video from a sub. The deep sea ecosystem isn't affected much by humans so the information is still relevant. R- This video presents a unique first hand view of what deep ocean life is like. The footage may be old but it isn't outdated. While the primary goal of the video is to entertain the video is still very informative. A- The video is from a Ted talk, an accurate resource, more importantly the person presenting (David Gallo) is a researcher that was on a deep sea research topic. A- While there are no sources David Gallo is a researcher on deep sea exploration project. What he says is accurate. P- To inform the public of brand new research efforts with the goal of mapping the sea floor. The author is trying to amaze readers.

Mia's insight:

Academic Journal

The purpose of the artical is purely to inform the reader about the deep ocean floor. It does not have any bias and does not try to pursuade something to the reader. It is very factual and informative. It is not as current, as it was published in 2008, but I still trust the accuracy of the journal because of the source citation, showing that they used an encyclopedia. It is also very relevant to the topic, as it describes the huge sediment-covered portions of the deep ocean floor.
