This will be accomplished by combining a series of class lectures and laboratory sessions, complemented a field trip on board the RV Silver Crescent, practical exercises and examinations. An objective of this course is to teach you how to think critically about ocean processes that influence your daily lives, which you might need to understand and study in greater detail later in your careers. Also you will learn to analyze different sources of oceanographical information to determine their usefulness for your work.
