Ocean and Coast

ERTH 151 - Physical Oceanography and Lab

ERTH 151

The oceans cover about 72% of Earth's surface, yet we know the surface of Venus better than our own ocean floors. 

This introduction to oceanography covers the formation and history of the ocean basins; the composition and origin of seawater; currents, tides, and waves; ocean-atmosphere interactions; oceans and climate; deep-marine environments; coastal processes; productivity in the oceans; and marine resources.
