The Changing Ocean
E&ES 255
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

The Earth is always changing, and we're currently experiencing some of the most rapid changes to have occurred within the history of life. This course presents a topical approach to major oceanographic concepts, particularly those impacted by an anthropogenic change, by linking core concepts in modern oceanography with paleoceanographic proxies and the fossil record. We will integrate geological, chemical, physical, and biological oceanography across multiple timescales to build a conceptual understanding of not only how the ocean works but how we can understand the past, present, and future of the world's ocean.
