Marine Science

Marine scientists use their knowledge of geosciences, in addition to biology and chemistry, to study the world’s oceans and coastal waters. They study the motion and circulation of ocean waters; the physical and chemical properties of the oceans; and how these properties affect coastal areas, climate, and weather. Courses and experiences at Daytona State College Institute of Marine and Environmental Studies are designed so that students become acquainted with basic scientific concepts through classroom and hands-on exploration of natural environments while using state-of-the art equipment.
