The Sea and Its Boundaries.
Chapman, Frank L.
This publication is designed for use as part of a curriculum series developed by the Regional Marine Science Project. As an informative text for a three-week unit in marine science for grade eight, it presents a study of coastal processes and oceanography. An ecological approach to nature is emphasized, stressing the ties between culture, economy, and resource use. Topics are divided into three units: Physical Oceanology covers tides; The Sea at Its Boundary discusses waves, beaches, and man's control of the beach environment; and Beyond the Land describes the off-coast profile, elements in the water, winds, currents, and sea testing equipment. Each unit includes a vocabulary, fill-in questions, discussion topics, and activities to complete. Numerous diagrams illustrate topics discussed. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
