Course Description

This course is designed as an introduction to the different facets of the ocean. Our emphasis will be physical oceanography. We will start by examining the structure of the ocean basins, the nature of sea water, and water circulation in the open ocean, and will continue with an examination of shoreline processes. We will summarize this information by describing its effects on ocean life and discussing current environmental issues that involve the ocean. The subjects covered during the semester are appropriate for the interested, non-science major, but will also provide useful information for majors in related fields. The course has no formal prerequisites, although knowledge of basic high school chemistry and physics is helpful.
