Class Description

Oceanography is the study of the physical, chemical, and biological features of the ocean, including the ocean’s ancient history, its current condition, and its future. Currently, the ocean is threatened by climate change and pollution, coastlines are eroding, and entire species of marine life are at risk of extinction, therefore studying the ocean is more important than ever!
