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.

OE 972 (1ON) - Hydrographic Field Course

Hydrographic Field Course

Course Delivery Method: Online (no campus visits), EUNH
Credits: 4.0
Term: Summer 2020 - Special Summer Session (05/18/2020 - 08/30/2020)
Class Size:   10  
CRN: 70034
A lecture, lab, and field course on the methods and procedures for the acquisition and processing of hydrographic and ocean mapping data. Practical experience in planning and conducting hydrographic surveys. Includes significant time underway (day trips and possible multi-day cruises) aboard survey vessel(s). Prereq: Fundamentals of Ocean Mapping, Geodesy and Positioning for Ocean Mapping; or permission. (Also listed as ESCI 972.)
Section Comments: If due to external circumstances such as the COVID19 pandemic, the on-water collection of survey data is precluded, the experience will be simulated. This simulation will be implemented through the use of unprocessed data from previous iterations of the course.
Equivalent(s): ESCI 972
