Ocean Opportunities. A Guide to What the Oceans Have to Offer.
Burtis, William S.
High school students interested in ocean-related careers will find their imagination piqued by "Ocean Opportunities." As the ocean's resources are recognized more and more as extremely important economically, yet very fragile, study of those resources is burgeoning. This multi-color booklet describes the exciting opportunities which ocean research provides; at the same time it clears up misconceptions about the nature of that work. Ocean careers and related information are presented in six chapters: (1) biological oceanography; (2) ocean engineering; (3) chemical oceanography; (4) geological oceanography; (5) physical oceanography; and (6) social sciences and the sea. Included in an appendix is an extensive listing of colleges, universities, schools, and other institutions and agencies that offer programs in ocean and marine studies. Some are career-training programs, some offer certificates, and most are degree-granting programs. (Author/JN)
