Curriculum Outline for a General Oceanography Field Laboratory (Review Cycle-Annual).
Schlenker, Richard M.
A curriculum guide, in outline form, for oceanography field laboratories is presented. Designed to complement and expand upon an oceanography lecture course, it provides a list of objectives related to student experiences in three areas: (1) operating oceanographic equipment; (2) gathering, manipulating, and evaluating data; and (3) writing formal research reports. Specific units covered include: temperature and salinity measurements, bottom profiling, surface and subsurface current measurements, library research, writing a research paper, and biological sampling. Lists of laboratory equipment and teaching aids, texts and references, student handouts, assignments, and a term project description are included in five appendices. (DC)
