The Ocean Planet part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Courses
This course examines the Earth in three different settings. First, the Earth's place in the universe (origins of the universe, sun, Earth and other planets). Second, the Earth as a whole (Earth structure, earthquakes, volcanism). Third, the surface of the Earth (ocean, atmosphere, climate). The course concludes with student led group presentations on human modifications to the Earth (climate change, use/abuse of natural resources).
