SEA3004F - Ocean And Atmosphere Dynamics

36 credits at NQF level 7

Entry Requirements:

PHY1031F or equivalent, BIO1004S or GEO1009F, CEM1000W, SEA2004F, SEA2005S.

Course Outline:

The Ocean & Atmosphere dynamics course will begin to specialise in advanced material related to physical oceanography, atmospheric science and climate. These topics will include a quantitative approach to ocean/atmosphere dynamics, theories of circulation and the development of ocean and atmospheric weather systems, coupled ocean/atmosphere processes, interactions and feedbacks with the carbon cycle in the earth system and climate change. Methods of analysis of both observations and model data will be covered in the tutorials and practicals.
