Title: What Will I Learn About In Marine Science?

What Will I Learn About In Marine Science?
2
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 worlds fisheries (overfishing the
    oceans)
  • Human impact on the marine environment
  • Coral reefs, ocean depths
  • Marine organisms and their ecology
  • Chemistry of the oceans
  • Etc.

3
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 oceans contents and processes.

4
Marine Science
  • The four main branches of oceanography
  • Biological oceanography (Marine biology)
  • Chemical oceanography
  • Geological oceanography
  • Physical oceanography

5
Branches of Oceanography
  • Biological oceanography (also called marine
    biology) studies the diversity of life in the
    ocean and the oceans 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

6
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)

7
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

8
Using the scientific method Inductive and
deductive reasoning
9
Variables and the scientific method

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!
