MSCI 522 - Principles of Geological Oceanography

Fall, even years (3) Kuehl, Hein, Harris, Kirwan

A brief review of the tectonic history of the oceans will be presented in this course, followed by detailed study of the ocean margins, including sea-level history and near shore geological processes in the coastal zone and continental shelf regions. The geological effects of bottom currents on ocean sediments will be examined along with ocean basin sediment history and approaches to pale oceanography.
