Study of marine ecology through experiential learning and an introduction to ecological research in the marine environment and using large datasets collected by marine scientists. By visiting marine ecosystems, students will also learn about marine resource use and conservation strategies in the coastal zone.
Upon completion of the course students should be able to:
1. Recognize environmental gradients (e.g. depth, temperature, wave exposure, 
salinity, dissolved oxygen) in the marine environment and their effects on marine 
organisms. 
2. Compare the physical and biotic structure of a variety of benthic marine habitats.
3. Apply research methods used in marine environments.
4. Analyze scientific data and experimental findings to reveal ecological patterns 
and processes in marine environments. 
5. Communicate their findings in written, oral, and graphical modalities.
