BIOL 262 - Aquatic Science


4 Credits
Aquatic science is a field of science that studies the properties of water, how water moves on and within the land, and the impact of water movement on physical structures and biological life. This class will discuss water distribution, the impacts of water movement on the physical structure of ponds, lakes, and shorelines, the relationship between water systems and biological life, and the importance of managing water systems for both quantity and quality. This course is a hybrid course, with an online lecture component, and a field based lab component. The lecture and lab must be taken concurrently in the same semester. The lab portion of the course will meet on four Saturdays. Most labs will involve travel offsite, when possible USJ transportation will be provided, but students may need access to transportation. Students will also be working in variable environmental conditions. Biology majors will be able to use this course as a physical science requirement. (LAS) (SI) (Core: Lab Science)
