OCE 1013C - Marine Science


3 credits
Prerequisites: SB 1720 Testing Exemption or successful completion of all Developmental courses 
This course will investigate the living and non-living components of aquatic ecosystems with a focus on current, local, marine, estuarine, and riverine issues. Students will learn foundational concepts in physical, chemical, geological, and biological oceanography and use them to analyze and discriminate between different open ocean and coastal ecosystems, evaluate the role of freshwater and water quality on coastal food webs, and explain the impact of humans on these systems. This course is intended to provide ample opportunity for laboratory and field trip investigations of the marine, estuarine, and riverine world using contemporary oceanographic instrumentation and technologies.
