Introduction to Oceanic Sciences (undergraduate level)
In this course, students learn about how the ocean looks like from the surface to the abyss, why the ocean is in constant movement, what sustains the life in the ocean, and what the role of the ocean in the climate system is and how human activities impact the ocean. We also mention the major discoveries which have revolutionized our knowledge about oceanography and the different techniques (based on observations and models) that provide scientists invaluable information about how the ocean looks like and evolves over time.
Ocean Physics (graduate level)
In this course, students learn about some fundamentals of ocean physics on seawater properties, processes contributing to stability and mixing, ocean circulations, wave phenomena and tides. We also review the main observational and modeling techniques that allow scientists to monitor and study the ocean.
