GEOL 1445 - Oceanography


4 Credits (3 hrs. lec., 3 hrs. lab.) This course explores topics in physical oceanography with an emphasis on the global understanding of the interaction of oceans with the earth's hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere. Laboratory exercises utilize real-time oceanographic data, and explore the current understanding of ocean floor topography, sea water chemistry, and the role the ocean-atmosphere system plays in controlling weather and climate. Students will be introduced to remote sensing technologies, modern research methods, and they will interpret marine data in both two and three dimensions. Internet based research activities help students explore and discover links between classroom discussions and life experiences.
