Current Ocean Studies components are posted to the RealTime Ocean Portal during Fall and Spring semesters, accompanying the Investigations Manual activities.
The first three components are posted for three weeks at the beginning of Fall and Spring semesters to accommodate various starting weeks across schools. The third week aligns with Investigations Manual 1A and 1B and the Current Climate Studies topic, 1. The Physical Basis for Earth’s Climate System.
Every Monday morning a new Current Climate Studies component will be posted while the oldest is moved to the Archives. All archived components are available for the rest of the academic year. The Archive also include the Current Climate Studies of the previous academic year.
Optional Chapters 13, 14, and 15 may be used at any point in the course and are posted before Fall semester.
