MAR 33000 - Human Impacts in Marine Systems

(4)
This course introduces the physical processes that drive marine productivity and the major human impacts on these systems (overfishing, climate change, invasive species, pollution, disturbance and coastal zone development) at local, regional, national and international scales. Students learn the current state of impacts through readings of the scientific literature and public policy documents (e.g., Pew Commission report on the world’s oceans), are updated on current mitigation, management, conservation and policy actions from local experts working in the field and examine the challenges of balancing ecological impacts with economic impacts and conflicts among stakeholders and policymakers through the completion of an in-depth dilemma based case study. Prerequisite: A grade of C- or better in MAR 22500 . Offered Fall. Competencies: CU, CWD, PMA, PS
