GE 380 Environmental Oceanography (Spring: 3)
GE 132 or GE 157
In this course, fundamental physical, chemical, geological, and biological
processes occurring in ocean environments are examined in the context of
how they impact humans and how humans have impacted the ocean. Emphasis
is placed on understanding the challenges involved with the development
of environments and resources through actual case studies and problem solving.
Topics include coastal oceanography and shore processes, water chemistry,
biogeochemical cycles and circulation, and air/sea interactions as related
to pollution and climate change.
