Citation of Ocean Literacy

From the outset we have designed the ocean literacy work to be used as much as possible. Please feel free to use the principles and concepts in your work or publication.

We ask you to acknowledge the source with the following citation:

Ocean Literacy: The Essential Principles of Ocean Sciences K-12. 2005. Pamphlet resulting from
the 2-week On-Line Workshop on Ocean Literacy through Science Standards; published by
National Geographic Society, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Centers for
Ocean Sciences Education Excellence, National Marine Educators Association, College of
Exploration; June 2005.

And a link to the website http://www.oceanliteracy.net and also to the pamphlet http://www.coexploration.org/oceanliteracy/documents/OceanLitChart.pdf could be included to help others spread the word and help promote an ocean literate world.
