Global Physical/Descriptive Oceanography

Or, Notions for the Motions of the Oceans. Brown Catalog Link
Examines physical characteristics, processes, and dynamics of the global ocean to understand circulation patterns and how they relate to ocean chemistry and large scale climate change. Assignments address origin and distribution of water masses, heat and water budgets, thermohaline and widn-driven circulation systems, dynamics of the oceanic conveyor belt, and El Nino.

Important Note from the Editor/Instructor: These papers represent the best efforts of the students of GEOL1100 to assimilate and use the information they were learning on the fly. These papers were written under very tight time constraints. Thus, while selected for content that is generally excellent, the reader encouraged to look at these papers as works in progress and disregard typographical or other minor errors. These papers have all been peer-reviewed by the class and revised afterward.
