GEG 325 - Marine Science (3)

The influence of the sea affects the planet’s climate, biosphere, and energy resources. This course includes investigation of the various areas involved in marine studies such as earth science as well as biological and physical oceanography.  The interrelationships that exist between oceans and humanity will also be investigated due to the importance of the world’s seas as sources of food, suppliers of oxygen,  regulators of climate, and depositories for humanities’ waste.  Upon completion students will demonstrate an understanding of how physical, biological, and geological processes apply to our understanding of oceans and the impact of humanity upon the marine environment. 

 Prerequisite:  One Scientific Perspectives course or permission.
