OCEAN 210 | Spring 2019

Integrative Oceans 2019

Credits: 4

Instructor(s): Dr. Mackenzie Gerringer

Prerequisites:

This course is offered as part of Spring Marine Studies.

The objectives of this course are to learn the patterns of, and processes that cause, the large scale distribution of properties in the ocean. These include physical, biological, chemical and geological processes that are integrated over temporal and spatial scales. We use observations (data) to answer oceanographic questions quantitatively (problem solving skills). Our goals are to learn basic distributions, understand those patterns. utilize simple calculations, and understand ocean and climate change.

This course is required for the UW Marine Biology major and minor.

Textbook to be determined.
