Description:  
Subject of the course and methodology. Measurement of salinity, temperature and pressure, determination of density, analysis of water masses. Measurement of currents (indirect methods, direct methodsaccording to Lagrange and to Euler), of highfrequency (wave gauge) and of lowfrequency (tide gauge) sea level variability. Equations of motion and continuity, equation of state and its approximations, equations of heat and salt exchange. Properties of the seas and oceans: salinity, temperature, pressure, density, water masses. Basic modeling of the spatial distribution of salinity and temperature and of the annual temperature cycle.
