Course Goals: One purpose of this course is to help ensure that Stony Brook
students are exposed to a diversity of disciplines (satisfying the category E
component of the Diversified Education Curriculum (DEC) requirement). "Category
E courses expand students' knowledge about objects and processes observable in
nature, whether animate as in the biological sciences, or inanimate as in the
physical sciences of chemistry or physics." Thus, by the end of this course,
students should understand the interactions between the biology, chemistry,
geology, and physics of the oceans that define the science of oceanography.
