Course Synopsis

To make students understand about the origin of oceans, its changing physical characteristics and geomorphology of the ocean floor, so that the students have up-to-date knowledge about the physical characteristics and the resources available in the oceans.

Course Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, the student will: • Describe the progressions of major earth science theories, including new analytic methods, sensors, and numerical methods. • Describe the three-dimensional distributions of temperature, salt, and momentum in the ocean and atmosphere, and explain the oceanic and atmospheric processes that control these distributions. • Identify, construct, and analyze coupled dynamical systems by which geological, atmospheric, oceanographic, chemical, and biological processes interact throughout a range of spatial and temporal scales. • Derive, interpret, and solve problems using the equations of motion of fluids, the continuity equation, and the equations of state for both moist and dry air, and seawater. • Collect and manipulate oceanic, atmospheric, and geospatial data sets and rigorously analyze and interpret observational data, in situ experimental data, and model results.
