EARS 3 Elementary Oceanography

Oceanography is one of the studies in which natural processes are investigated with interdisciplinary approaches by scientists of a wide range of specialties. Physical, chemical, biological and geological processes in the oceans and their interactions are studied in this course. Students will gain appreciation of the complexity of the ocean as a natural system and necessity of interdisciplinary to investigate it. Oceans as a source of resources, as a fundamental part of the global climate engine, as a book of Earth's environmental history, and as a bed of the origin of life are discussed. Use and abuse of ocean resources and associated environmental problems, such as ocean water pollution, over-fishing and whaling are also discussed.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
