10:00am - 12:00pm


Six Sessions

$30 for LLCC members, $60 for non-members.

We live on the edge of the largest ocean basin on earth.  We enjoy its beauty and many of us have participated in its recreational possibilities or explored its edge or consumed its culinary gifts.  But what do we know of its mysteries, such as why do the basins exist in the first place and how deep are they, or where did all the water come from, or why do we have tides, or how do marine animals live in total darkness in the ocean depths?

This is a DVD course with lectures given by a noted marine geologist who received his doctoral degree at UC Santa Cruz.  The DVD is especially rich in graphics, charts, diagrams and videos to supplement the lectures.

Oceanography is a very broad area of study that involves the application of all the basic fields of science.  Accordingly, this course will describe what geologists, physicists, chemists and biologist have learned, and how they learned it, of the part of our planet that covers over 70% of its surface.

In this second set of six sessions we will first cover waves, rogue waves, tsunamis, and tides; then three sessions on the biology of the marine life, going from microscopic plankton to whales; and ending with an examination of sea-land interactions including coastal formations, rivers, estuaries and deltas.

You can enjoy this course whether or not you attended Part 1  of this course.

Gene Kalland taught biology for over 30 years at California State University Dominguez Hills, his specialties being endocrinology and developmental biology. He earned his BA in Biology at CSU Northridge (way back then known as San Fernando Valley State College) and his PhD in Zoology at Indiana University, Bloomington. He has facilitated DVD courses for LLCC on the Universe, Oceanography, Evolution, Genetics, and Darwin.
