This course is an introduction to the geological, chemical, physical and biological aspects of the world's oceans and interactions among them. Topics will include: the history of oceanography; historic and modern oceanographic instruments; plate tectonics and marine geology; the marine-land interface; ecological problems of the local bay, estuary, delta and state wide water resources; oceans' roles as a dominant influence on the earth, its climate, and the lives of its inhabitants; food, drug, and mineral energy resources from the sea; global and local ocean resource management, aquacultural techniques and practices, and preservation of marine environments; and the deep sea: properties, animals and adaptations. In the laboratory, students will experience the role of the oceanographer as they prepare for, participate in, and analyze data collected on research trips to local bay environments.
