What is marine science and what role does it play in our daily life? In Marine Science Semester 1, you’ll explore the development of oceans and the role water plays in shaping our environment and climate. Learn about the oceanic and freshwater processes, changes in ecosystems, and the connection between water and weather. You will also learn about energy in the ocean, including the principles of fluid dynamics, the role of hydrostatic pressure, the law of conservation of energy, and the measurable properties of waves. Through the use of scientific inquiry, research, measurement, and problem solving, you will conduct various scientific procedures that will lead to an increased level of knowledge about Marine Science.
