Lecture and student-led discussion course covers the interactions of physical and biological processes in marine ecosystems. The course begins by looking at these processes on global to regional scales and works down to the smaller scales. The course introduces students to modern techniques of marine-ecosystems research, including remote sensing and ecosystem modeling. The course focuses on anthropogenic impacts on the global ocean as well as the sustainable use of its services and resources.
