As our amazing planet continues to change over time, it becomes increasingly more apparent how human activity has made environmental impacts. In the marine science course, you will delve deep into Earth’s bodies of water and study geologic structures and how they impact the oceans. You will investigate characteristics of various populations, patterns of distribution of life in our aquatic systems and ongoing changes occurring everyday in our precious ecosystems.
You will be amazed and enlightened at just how much our oceans and lakes affect climate, weather, and seasonal variations. You will have the opportunity to explore the relationships among living organisms and see how they are affected by our oceans currents, tides, and waves. Hold on, it is one amazing journey.
