This course considers the struggle to understand the physics of the sea to help predict when the sea will unleash its fury. The scientific discovery of ocean engineering topics such as tides, waves, and tsunamis are introduced through their human historical introduction. The historical significance and preliminary resolution of each physical mechanism provide context for the fundamental formulations and contemporary predictive models. The course also considers the role of ocean disasters and geopolitical conflict in motivating scientific exploration of the oceans.
