The Ocean That Surrounds Us

Karen Grove, San Francisco State University, Department of Geosciences

This site contains links to course information, outlines, summaries and computer-based drills and exercises, called Virtual Voyages, for an Introductory Oceanography class at San Francisco State University. Virtual Voyages engage students outside of the classroom and cover such topics as the seafloor, earthquakes, plates, ocean currents, beach waves, tides and habitat. There are also links to the Department of Geosciences and San Francisco State University Home Pages.
