This is an advanced physical oceanography subject suitable for physics students studying the marine environment. It provides an overview of the physical properties of the oceans of the world but has a special focus on the physical conditions of Australian coastal oceanography. This includes temperature and salinity signatures of water types; water, salt and heat budgets of the oceans; surface properties; and circulation of the oceans. This subject will require calculus based mathematics; it is a quantitative subject. The laboratory sessions cover instruments and methods. A one day field trip to carry out measurement of physical parameters of hydrodynamics will be organized.
