A supplemental text for an introductory course in Oceanography, Marine Science, or Environmental Science. An innovative approach to teaching oceanography, this combination text/web supplement consists of marine environmental issues that are presented as self-contained exercises. Written in an exceptionally clear and concise style, it involves students interactively in developing the math and analytical skills necessary to truly think critically about, and gain insight into, important issues. Discussions based on the activities create a vibrant learning atmosphere in both large and small-section classes.
