Biology in Dingle
BI176 – Intro to Oceanography

Understanding the complexity of ocean processes is a daunting task for any student. This course is open to all students and focuses on the understanding of basic oceanography  via experiential learning associated with sailing and surfing.  The course will begin with a 4 – 5 week section on oceanographic principles including waves, tides, wind, pressure, and will be followed by several weeks of sailing and surfing courses. Each activity will be proceeded by a daily theory lecture as well.  This course will be run in conjunction with both the Dingle Surf School and the Dingle Sailing Club, who have agreed to provide licensed instructors for both sports.
