    Corequisites: None


    This course provides a general description of the geology,
    chemistry, and physics of the oceans. Topics include a history of
    oceanography, bathymetry, plate tectonics, seawater chemistry
    and physics, atmospheric circulation, currents, waves, tides,
    sedimentation, and coastal geology. Upon completion, students
    should be able to describe bathymetric features, the chemistry
    and physics of seawater, atmospheric and ocean circulations,
