Observing the Ocean from Micro to Macro Scale

Master's level | 15 credits | Course code: OC4920

The course does not start as a freestanding course this academic year but can start within a program or a course package. Please contact the department for further information.

About the Course

The course will provide an understanding of the ocean processes that impact its motion (e.g. circulation and property exchange) and the scales that they occur, that are relevant for 21st century science. The course will attempt to have a overall view of the ocean, in the sense that a number of oceanic domains will be incorporated and taught on. The course will cover the importance of the different scales that processes occur in space and time, such as from micro-scale mixing processes to the larger mesoscale flows. The course will include a field work element, where students are expected to take the knowledge from the course to design a small field experiment using a research ship and scientific equipment/sensors. The students will then use the collected field observations to complete simple tasks in analyzing and interpreting the data.
