ZTC & LTC Classes

The college strives to ensure that the ZTC and LTC designations are accurate; however, under some circumstances, faculty may have to adjust selection of instructional materials and this can affect course material costs. It may also be necessary to change instructors. Replacement faculty have academic freedom to choose instructional materials regardless of costs and are not obligated to use free course materials selected by an instructor previously assigned to the class.

Introductory Oceanography Laboratory

This course is designed to accompany Oceanography 101 or 101H. It offers hands-on experience with oceanographic materials and techniques in both the laboratory and field. Topics include reading navigational charts and topographic maps, interpreting sea floor features, analyzing seawater chemistry, and studying waves and tides. On field trips, students study waves, currents, and coastal processes, examine organisms in coastal marine habitats and at an aquarium, and participate in a half-day scientific ocean voyage.
