What Will I Learn About In Marine Science?

Some of the topics to be covered in this course:

  • The science of marine biology
  • The sea floor, plate tectonics, early earth (project)
  • Marine ecology
  • Tsunamis (project)
  • El Nino / southern occilation
  • State of the world’s fisheries (overfishing the oceans)
  • Human impact on the marine environment
  • Coral reefs, ocean depths
  • Marine organisms and their ecology
  • Chemistry of the oceans
  • Etc…….
marine science
Marine Science
  • Marine Science can be defined as the process of discovering the facts, processes, and unifying principles that explain the nature of the oceans and their associated life forms.
  • Marine science consists of four branches of oceanography
  • Oceanography is the science of recording and describing the ocean’s contents and processes.

Marine Science
  • The four main branches of oceanography:
    • Biological oceanography (Marine biology)
    • Chemical oceanography
    • Geological oceanography
    • Physical oceanography
branches of oceanography
Branches of Oceanography
  • Biological oceanography (also called marine biology) studies the diversity of life in the ocean and the ocean’s role as their habitat.
  • Chemical oceanography studies the chemistry of seawater
  • Geological oceanography concerns itself with the geology of the ocean
  • Physical oceanography is the study of the physics within the marine environment
integrating the sciences
Integrating the sciences
  • Marine science draws on physical science, life science, and Earth and space science
    • Physical science is the study of matter and energy (chemistry and physics)
    • Life science is the study of living things and their interactions with their environment (physiology, biology, ecology)
    • Earth and space science is the study of the physical Earth, the solar system, the universe, and their interrelationships. (Geology, astronomy, astrophysics)

Cross-Discipline Nature of Marine Science
  • Because marine science is a broad field, marine scientist need more than a formal education in the sciences.
    • mathematics
    • History
    • Technology
    • Social sciences
    • Literature
    • arts

Marine Science will allow you to incorporate and apply what you have learned in Earth & Space Science, Biology, & Chemistry / Physical Science.

You have a unique opportunity to come full circle in your science education.

For those interested at the end of the course, we will have the opportunity to travel and meet marine scientists and the fascinating marine animals they work with.

In the end, by completing this course, you will have a better understanding of our ocean planet and be better prepared to care for it so that your children and grandchildren will be able to enjoy and benefit from it in ways our parents and grandparents never knew.

Lastly, you will have reinforced lessons learned in prior science course.

Good luck. And may our adventure begin!
