This class will introduce the physical characteristics of oceans, the features that shape the environment and conditions for organisms that live in the marine universe. We will explore the geography of the ocean, the earth’s structure, plate tectonics, properties of water such as salinity and pressure, nutrient cycling, and the movements of oceans via currents, tides, and thermohaline circulation. Hands on activities will accompany each class to enhance each lesson. Students will need web enabled devices for some classes. Weekly homework and reading will be assigned.
