Introduction: The Oceans and Sustainable Development
From SDG Academy on 31 July, 2019
The global ocean connects us all and provides our livelihoods, the oxygen we breathe, and transportation, among other things. The ocean is included in SDG 14. This course will try to provide a deeper understanding of the complex understanding of the ocean, environment, and climate system. Humans receive resources from the ocean, as well as risks. There will be weekly lectures on different topics, including the basic physics of ocean circulation, the ocean ecosystem, how the deep ocean works, the geology of volcanoes, and more. Martin Visbeck explains the format of the course and the learning goals for students. Other professors introduce themselves and the topics of their lectures.
