EOSC 583 · Circulation Processes and Transport Mechanisms in Observational Oceanography
The objective of this course is to provide incoming graduate students in all areas of EOS (although primarily OCGY and ATSCI students) with an overview of the important parts of, and mechanisms at play in, the world ocean, breaking down the system by both geographical location and by transport mechanisms. Although emphasizing the interconnectedness of the different basins and processes it will become clear why differences in disciplinary emphasis have led to different perspectives about, and conceptual models for, the ocean.
EOSC 582 · Satellite Remote Sensing: Applications to Oceanography and Meteorology
A review of the satellite-sensed data products used in research and operational aspects of oceanography and meteorology. Equivalent to GEOG 515.
Petty, G. W., 2004: A First Course in Atmospheric Radiation, Sundog Publishing. Plus handouts and web material.
Longwave radiative transfer: emission and absorption
Applications: Surface temperature, atmospheric temperature sounding, cloud cover, global energy balance
EOSC 579 · Dynamic Oceanography
Credit will not be granted for both EOSC 477 and EOSC 579.
Course content varies from year to year but for 2022 is expected to be similar to 2019.
EOSC 578 · Seminar in Biological Oceanography
A course to allow students the opportunity to present their own work, or that of others, orally. Topics will be chosen in consultation with faculty. Students will be expected to present at least one seminar during the term and to participate in the discussion of other seminars. Students in biological oceanography will normally take the seminar twice during their tenure at UBC.
EOSC 576 · Inorganic Chemical Tracers in the Study of Marine Systems
Ocean Biogeochemical Dynamics, by Sarmiento and Gruber, 2006
EOSC 575 · The Biology and Ecology of Marine Zooplanktonic Organisms
EOSC 574 · Methods in Oceanography
Methods of data acquisition, study and analysis required in solving oceanographic problems. Includes a field school held during the mid-term break. A fee is to be paid by January 31.
EOSC 571 · Seminar in Physical Oceanography and Atmospheric Science
Oral presentations by students of current research of their own or from the literature. Topics chosen in consultation with faculty.
