Ocean 546 class, spring quarter

This spring, Chuck taught Continental Margin Sedimentation (Ocean 546) to Oceanography graduate and undergraduate students, and students in the Earth and Space Sciences professional masters program. The class covered key papers on sedimentary environments spanning marshes to carbonate platforms, and included intensive student involvement in class discussions and presentations. Field trips to southwest Washington and the Skagit River delta highlighted the continuum of transport processes from large and medium rivers to the coastal ocean, as well as sediment transport on tidal flats (and also the importance of a good, waterproof tent!). This class comes highly recommended for anyone interested in sediment transport and the coastal environments where we live.
