The study of the ocean environment as an integrated ecosystem: The biology of marine organisms and the related physical, chemical, and geological processes of the sea with attention given to the exploitation of marine resources and pollution. Not offered for credit to biology majors.

An introduction to the field of oceanography. Physical, chemical, geological, and biological aspects are emphasized to provide a basic foundation for further work in biological oceanography.

The cycle of productivity in the marine environment and the physiological and morphological adaptations of plant, animal and bacterial populations within various oceanic regions. Interrelationships of the plankton, the nekton, and the benthos are stressed.
