Grade 11 Intro to Oceanography Course sponsored by De Beers Marine

Interested in studying oceanography but not too sure what it is all about? This Grade 11 course introduces basic concepts in the study of the ocean. Why is the ocean blue and salty? Why are there mountain ranges under the ocean? What causes the circulation of ocean currents? Is climate change affecting the ocean? What happens as you dive deeper?

Learn to answer these questions, and more, at the Introduction to Oceanography Course!
