	National Science Foundation Marine Science Short Course
			June 10 - 25, 1995
 
	The University of San Diego (USD) and Grossmont College (GC) are
now taking applications for the Summer 1995 National Science Foundation
Marine Science Short Course.  This course offers full-time 2- and 4- year
college instructors of undergraduate classes with marine science content
the opportunity to update and enhance instruction.  Participants will be
selected primarily on the basis of the potential impact the information
they receive will have on undergraduate marine science instruction.
Course applicants most able to benefit from the Short Course will be
those with a sound background in the natural sciences, especially
biology, zoology, physical geography, geology, chemistry, physics, or
meteorology, and who demonstrate enthusiasm for teaching undergraduates.
 
	Short Course activities will include:  oceanographic data
collection at sea with subsequent laboratory data reduction and
analysis;  field studies in local estuarine habitats, nearshore shallow
water environments, sandy and rocky shore habitats; field studies of
exemplary paleomarine facies;  presentation of specific media aids
(including Internet and CD-ROM), laboratory exercises, teaching
techniques, and aspects of textbook selection;  visits to marine science
teaching and research institutions in San Diego and Mexico;  and tours of
selected commercial/industrial and government marine operations.  A
schedule of events will be published as lecturers and facilities are
confirmed.
 
	Approximately three nights per week, guest speakers and other
activities will be presented:
 
- Coastal Processes and Tectonic Control of the San Diego Coastline
(Shannon O'Dunn, GC)
 
- Ocean Acoustic Tomography - 3D images of ocean currents and
temperatures (Dr. Peter Worcester, SIO).
 
- WOCE - World Ocean Circulation Experiment (Dr. Lynee Talley, SIO).
 
- Hydrothermal Vents (Drs. Robert Hessler and Jeff Stein, SIO).
 
- Sea Floor Topography from Satellite Derived Gravity anomaly Data (Dr.
Davide Sandwell, SIO).
 
- Marine Policy and Law of the Sea (Doriane Greene, USD).
 
- Evaluation of Salt Marsh and Wetlands Mitigation Efforts (Dr. Joy
Zedler, SDSU).
 
- Stress Effects on Dolphins in Tuna Purse Seines (Dr. Al Myrick, NMFS).
 
- The Influence of Circulation in the North Atlantic on Paleoclimate and
climate change (Dr. Sarah Gray, USD).
 
- Gray Whale Physiology (Dr. James Sumich, GC)
 
- Reconstructing Paleoecology and Paleoclimate (Dr. Tom Demere, SD
Natural History Museum).
 
- The Ocean Drilling Program - Past and Future (Dr. Audrey Meyer, Mira
Costa CC).
 
- Kelp Forest Ecology and Commericial Utilization of Kelp (Dale Glanz,
KELCO).
 
- Migrating Shore Birds (Dr. Joe Jehl, Sea World-Hubbs Research Institute).
 
++++Other presentations will be added as lecturers are confirmed++++++
 
	Participants will be housed in modern apartment style dormitories
at University of San Diego, and use the dining and recreation facilities
(pool, weight room, tennis courts, track) on campus.  Funding covers all
instructional costs, room and board.  Participants are responsible for
travel costs to and from San Diego, plus all personal expenses.
 
	For computer users, updated information and application forms
will be posted for downloading on University of San Diego's "gopher"
system.  Use gopher commands as follows:
