Course Description:

I will introduce students to the fascinating and complex subject of Oceanography. I will discuss various sub-disciplines of oceanography, the history of the subject, the origins of the earth, the structure and motion of the atmosphere and how they influence the ocean. I will learn about the seafloor and its sediments, waves, tides and the coasts, organisms that live in the ocean and how they survive, resources from the ocean including minerals and hydrocarbons, and finally I will discuss pertinent environmental issues related to the oceans and the earth.
Is that fine with you or you want more details?
