Something interesting from the Earth Day Data Challenge as they are looking for creative uses of the public ocean data available on marinexplore.org. For example, the use of historical sea surface temperature data to investigate phenomenon like La Niña. You could explore the effects of salinity in ocean currents, the routes of mobile data platforms, or compare datasets measuring the same parameter in different time frames.
