Marine Ecosystems via distance learning

 

This program of marine ecology studies of how marine organisms interact with each other and the environment. Healthy marine ecosystems are important for society since they constitute a valuable resource to provide food, raw materials for medicines, building materials from coral rock and sand; and natural defenses against hazards such as pollution, coastal erosion and inundation. A healthy ocean regulates climate and reduce climate change impacts. The ocean also absorbs over 90% of the heat and approximately 30% of carbon dioxide emissions produced by human activities.

Marine Life
This course reviews the physiology, reproductive biology, anatomy, taxonomy, and ecology of marine life. It also studies the marine organisms and their relationships to the marine environment with emphasis on human interaction with marine ecosystems.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Water & Air Quality
This course reviews the control technologies used for management of air, water, and wastewater pollutants. It examines the characteristics of air and water quality; their physical, chemical, and bacteriological parameters; and control measures primarily filtration, sedimentation, coagulation, absorption, chemical treatment, and aeration.
Academic Supervisor: Eduard Bes Fuster

Marine Zoology
This course explores the natural history, functional morphology, ecology, distribution, habitat, adaptation, trophic interrelationships, and evolution of marine animals. It shows comparative morphology and biology of marine invertebrates, as well as the morphological, physiological, behavioral, and ecological diversity of fishes of the world.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Marine Ecosystems
This course of marine ecosystems explores the habitats that complete the largest system from the shores to the dark sea floor. The marine ecosystem includes: marshes, tidal zones, estuaries, the mangrove forest, lagoons, sea grass beds, the sea floor, and the coral reefs. Just like every other ecosystem in the world, the aquatic ecosystems rely on each other for maintaining a balanced marine ecosystem.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Watershed & Fisheries Management
This course presents the management of human impacts on the hydrologic cycle and watershed landscape. It also presents the theory and practice of contemporary fishery management while emphasizing on ecology, fish population sampling and manipulation, and multiple use concepts. It covers techniques of protection, restoration, and improvement of fresh water habitats.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Coastal & Marine Ecosystems
This course describes the major ecological impacts, processes, and management regimes that are associated with marine, coastal, and near-shore ecosystems. It reviews laws, programs, policy initiatives, marine organisms, and their relationships to the environment, in addition to human interaction with coastal and marine ecosystems.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Marine Science
This course emphasizes the principles that govern the oceans, the sea currents, the water composition, and the marine life. It deals with aspects of physical, geological, and chemical oceanography as well as their relation with the marine ecosystems and their inhabitants. It also explores how organisms interact within their individual marine ecosystems, including the human activity impact on oceans, pollution, oceanic dead zones, and coral reefs.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Marine Biology
This course deals with the biological aspects of marine communities from coastal estuaries to deep ocean trenches. It integrates marine biology with aspects of physical, geological, and chemical oceanography in relationship to the marine ecosystems and the organisms that inhabit them.
Academic Supervisor: José Luis Corona Lisboa

Aquatic Toxicants
This course examines the sources, cycling, and impacts of toxicants in aquatic systems, including acid rain, ground water, fresh water rivers and lakes, estuaries, and the ocean. It deals with processes at the air-water interface, the properties of toxic chemicals that influence biogeochemical cycles, and their toxicity to aquatic organisms and humans.
Academic Supervisor: Eduard Bes Fuster

Marine Ecology
This course of marine ecology reviews the scientific study of marine-life habitat, populations, and interactions among organisms and the surrounding environment including their abiotic and biotic factors. Most ocean life can be found in coastal habitats on the continental shelf, even if this area occupies only 7% of the total ocean area. Most of the open ocean habitats are found in the deep ocean beyond the edge of the continental shelf.
