Oceanography Welcome to the first round of notes, guys! Week one will contain notes from the classes as the notes from the videos will be posted the same week that the “quizzes” are due. For that, I can assure you that the notes for the following weeks will be far more extensive. If you have any questions or need a study buddy, feel free to contact me! Though the sea levels are not consistent throughout the globe, they are, on average, rising by millimeters every year. Data shows a rise in sea level of about 70mm over the past twenty years, and continuing to do so at an exponential rate. This can be caused by three different things 1) Water being added to the ocean 2) “thermal expansion” as water heats up, it expands 3) Alteration of the ocean basin, the changing shape of the ocean floor Dams cause a decrease in sea level because the water is unable to flow back into the ocean Adversely, groundwater levels are declining. The rate at which the water is being replenished rain is less than the rate of extraction by wells. For this, the volume of the soil is shrinking, substantially in dryer areas such as California. The ground is evidently sinking. The class activity on Friday was to acquaint yourself with ocean geography. For the sake of a visual understanding in future lectures (which seas should be warm by their location…) I would suggest familiarizing yourself with the map.
