Brad deYoung



The instructor for this course is Brad deYoung who can be found in C-4062. The course deals with the physics of the processes in the ocean, providing an integrative view of the field of oceanography. The importance of physical processes to other aspects of oceanography is treated. Our goal is to learn about some of the key features of how the ocean works. Why do the large scale current systems look as they do? Why is the ocean stratified? How long does it take for water to move around in the ocean? How are the ocean and atmosphere coupled? What role does the ocean play in regulating the earth's climate?

The final assignment and graded essays will be available on Monday at my office C-4062.
