After an introductory lecture each student considers two physical oceanographic topics. The topics are selected from the papers recently published in scientific journals or from the monographs. Results of his/her study the student describes in writing and orally, paying attention to development of the problem, results of data analysis and/or mathematical modeling and main conclusions. Discussion with the teacher and other students enables the student to deepen the knowledge gained while attending the lectures and exercises during the previous years of study.
Students will be able to
1. identify scientific texts that are needed to perform the investigation,
2. analyze the selected scientific texts,
3. present results of scientific work in written form, and
4. present results of scientific work in oral form.
