GEO 160 Blue Planet

Planet Earth formed as a ball of fire, but now is 70% water. Where did all this water come from? How does it shape our world? This course dives into these questions. We consider the chemical and physical properties of sea water, and how these waters circulate. The oceans represent the heart of our Blue Planet and their effects - waves, tides, shoreline processes, marine biology, and economic impact - play a critical role in our future.
