EOS 314 - Physical Oceanography Laboratory
Throughout the Ocean Science summer program, we will keep revisiting Saanich Inlet. In 314, we are interested in water column properties.
The final project for 314 will involve looking at Saanich Inlet and surrounding waters and discussing why we see what we do. This lab is designed as a tutorial to help you with data analysis and presentation for your project. Some of the data that we use in the lab will be the same data you use in your final project. Please use this opportunity to get a head start on your project!
Except for the first two introductory labs, the labs are designed to be completed over two days. The first day (date listed below) will be a guided tutorial covering the material. On the second, you’ll be expected to complete an assignment to turn in. You may work collaboratively, but everyone must hand in their own assignment. Assignments are due by 4:00pm on the second day of the lab, on the class USB memory stick.
Labs will be ‘clickable’ links a day before the lab. Keys will be available after the lab is marked.
