Fall 2020

This course examines the major physical, chemical, and biological properties of the world's oceans. Processes affecting ocean temperature, salinity, and density are reviewed. Factors controlling the distribution of the world's major ocean currents and those controlling the distribution of marine life in the benthic, pelagic, and estuarine environments are explored. The influence of tides on coastal ecosystems, the shipping industry, and tides as a source of energy, are examined. The environmental consequences of over-fishing, pollution, global warming, and El Nino, among others, are discussed. Principles of scientific inquiry are integrated throughout the course.
