Welcome to Marine Science
Marine science is the study of the deep sea to shallow coastal oceans: their biology, chemistry, geology and physics. Together all of these fields of science make marine science a richly inter-disciplinary science. The start of this course we will talk about the history of oceanography and what cultures influenced discovery of our oceans. We will then move into a study of how volcanic activity not only affects the ocean but the whole planet. We will also be looking at how the ocean is driven by the sun and how the atmosphere affect tides. We will be looking at the different classifications of life in the ocean by taking a birds eye view of marine organisms and how their diversity is as complex as organisms on land. The last part of the class will be conservation and how we can protect the one part of planet that has had little exploration.
